About The Collaboration

  • Three distinctive designs from the Fromental by Sophie Paterson wallcovering collaboration are the basis for this capsule collection of decorative artworks. In a fresh palette of colourways, ‘Branches in the Breeze’, ‘Magnolia Canopy’ and ‘Olive Grove’ are hand-painted on silk grounds by artists schooled in the ancient art of Chinese painting.

    We chose to frame the artworks in England and present them without glass to reveal the delicacy of the hand painting and the texture of the silk. Sophie selected wood frames in a textured bronze hue with a recessed mount to complement the collection.

    Each design is available in two sizes, with different compositions to be hung as a single, a pair or a triptych, as an accent for sophisticated interiors. Every frame is numbered and backed with a certificate of authenticity.

  • Sophie is a longstanding creative partner. In 2018 we had our first collaboration; a collection of modern chinoiserie, inspired by Sophie’s favourite flora. The resulting designs were a delightful marriage of Sophie’s elegant sensibility and Fromental’s enduring craft.
