In focus: Clarke & Clarke - the best in basics
As much as we love a bold print or illustrative design, sometimes simplicity is the order of the day – and no one does basics better than Clarke & Clarke. Its extensive library of staple fabrics and wallpapers is second to none, from the calm versatility of its plains and neutrals to the classic elegance of its striped and soft geometric designs, perfect for creating a harmonious home. Many of these simple fabrics and papers come in a huge range of colours, with scope for adding texture and depth to any interior design scheme.
Best in basics – fabric
With something for every use, from upholstery and cushions to curtains and blinds, Clarke & Clarke’s collection of fabrics is used as a source of ideas by interior designers and customers alike. For a sumptuous look, its Alvar velvet will add effortless style to any colour scheme with over fifty shades available, from jewel-bright chartreuse to rusty nutmeg. If you’re looking for pattern, Clarke & Clarke has a catalogue of subtle florals and botanicals that will add soft movement to your space, with prints from its neutral Origins collection providing the perfect combination of classic style and interest.
Best in basics – wallpaper
When it comes to wallpaper, the emphasis is on texture, with the Reflections collection offering neutral tones in a variety of beautiful finishes inspired by nature’s landscapes and formations, from the gentle undulations of Cascade to the geometric shapes of Sandstone and the sketchy stripes of Echo. For something bolder, its Colony wallcoverings feature a simple but effective candy stripe in Nevis and a more experimental stripe in Fiji.
What’s astonishing about Clarke & Clarke’s collection of basics is how many different compositions can be pulled together using just this one brand as a sourcebook; whether you’re looking for a luxurious velvet to use in upholstery, an earthy linen for floor-sweeping curtains or a classic textured wallpaper.
