Cole & Son presents Curio
11/03/2016

Shimmering mineral surfaces, woodgrain textures, sea corals and precious stones define this beautifully curated new collection of nonwoven wallpapers. Inspired by the rarities and objets d’art of the natural world, Curio is a collectors’ box of twelve designs, ranging from the lustrous hexagonal Mineral and sharp edged Quartz, to the botanical Seafern and softly marbled Zebrawood. The predominantly neutral colourings include pearlescent elements of oyster and Mother of Pearl, alongside more matte hues of chalk white, grey and ecru, whilst flashes of emerald and coral offer a more dramatic look.

Zebrawood
Inspired by weathered driftwood, Zebrawood applies dappled animal-like markings to create this smart striped wallpaper in a variety of colours and hues. Dramatic black and white, tigerskin and emerald present a more striking approach, whilst the calmer tones of bleached grey and stone offer a more subtle effect.

Seafern
Staghorn and Ivory Tree are just some of the coral species represented in this classic wallpaper inspired by antique botanical prints from the late 1700s. Placed on a subtle background of Cole & Son’s archive blockprint, Vermicelli, Seafern is offered in six colourings, comprising botanical fern greens, pale inky blues and soft titian reds, and a more breathtaking charcoal and emerald with hints of antique gold.

Plume
Conceived in the Cole & Son Design Studio, the calligraphic Plume is a softly repeating handpainted banded stripe, which takes its inspiration from tribal art and mark-making from around the world. Soft feathery brushstrokes of greys, charcoal and metallic gold and bronze sit on chalky textured grounds of charcoal, stone and parchment.

Vermicelli
Vermicelli resides as a block print within the Cole & Son archives and for this collection, it has been given a modern and contemporary restoration. Screen printed in a range of luxurious colourings which include subtly glittering metallics and a ‘printroom’ coral and jade, this intricate yet simple all over print will bestow an elegant and handsome finish to any space.

Ingot
Reminiscent of Puzzle from the Geometric II collection, Ingot features a tumbling array of small metallic cubes drawn from the metallic ores of the underground world. Inspired by the precious stone Pyrite, or ‘Fool’s Gold’ as it is more commonly known, Ingot is offered in four gleaming colourings of silver, gilver, gold, pewter and bronze all cascading onto earthy grounds of neutral, olive and charcoal.

Mineral
Geology meets geometry in this intricately enigmatic wallpaper of soft shimmering, burnished metallic. Set in a loose hand-drawn hexagonal tile arrangement, these smoky mineral colourings include dusty charcoal, pearl, pewter and oyster, perfect for elegant daylight or low-lit night light.

Strand
Strand features a striking pattern of vertical brush-marked ribbons of gleaming metals and chalky mattes. The more muted colourings of ecru, grey and gilver are effortlessly stylish, whilst the more dramatic gold and emerald on coal black, and classic charcoal and white are perfect for that dashing, ‘show off’ interior.

Quartz
A real collectors’ gem, Quartz offers you the opportunity to create your very own Aladdin’s Cave. Exciting and unexpected with its facets and shards of crystalline silvers, quartz and emeralds, this spectacular paper has the panache to steal the show.

Goldstone
A different interpretation of Cole & Son’s Pebble design, Goldstone features a mass of shimmering marbled flecks of gold and silver on grounds of eau de nil, ivory, jet and ebony. Designed to subtly blend into a soft sheen from a distance, Goldstone is the perfect ‘lustre’ paper to add a hint of sparkle.

Woodgrain
An old favourite from the Foundation collection, Woodgrain has been brought back into the limelight again, with a set of brand new colourings. A true black and white sits alongside a smoky coal black with silver, and a selection of softer neutrals, all creating an amusing interpretation of a woodgrain effect.

Crackle
A reworking of the popular design in Foundation, Crackle is offered in four new colourings of charcoal, grey, parchment, and stone.
