a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Wallace Sewell has a devotion to quality and they are very proud to be manufacturing their products exclusively in the UK.
At Design Junction 2013 they preview their first collection of upholstery fabrics, developed for Designtex, New York and woven at Hield Brothers in Yorkshire, This new range explores the power of scaling up their compositions to a monumental size, allowing the viewer to appreciate the subtle variations of colour formed by the structure of the cloth. To be launched in early 2014, the collection will be offered in a range of designs of varying dimensions and bold colourings.
Commissions range from bespoke scarves for the Tategallery, Anthropologie, silk wall hangings, to a series of iconic public commissions for ‘moquette’ designs for Transport for London seating.
In addition, 2013 sees Wallace Sewell turning 21, and to celebrate this they are offering a collection of limited edition silk squares, called ‘ONE of ONE’. Available in two sizes, each scarf is completely unique.
After graduating from the RCA in 1990, Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell formed their studio in 1992, and over the years have established themselves as pioneers in the creation of distinctive woven scarves and throws sold under the Wallace Sewell brand. Creating innovative woven fabrics exploiting industrial techniques, they work closely with the textile industry in Great Britain to produce pieces, which sell worldwide.
