CHIANG MAI DRAGON is one of Schumacher’s best-loved designs. Since its introduction in 2006, the fabric has become iconic among our patterns. The modern Chinoiserie motif, which is screened onto rich linen and is also available as a wallcovering, originally came from an exuberant Art Deco block print that was created in the 1920s.

JAIPUR | HAND BLOCK WALLCOVERINGS by Schumacher – The art of the hand block is highly prized for its beautifully crafted appearance—subtle, softened and varied, each motif showing the hand and mark of its maker. Even the wood blocks used to create the designs are carved by hand, and much of their natural beauty lies in their intricately detailed forms and time-worn edges. This exquisite collection of wallcoverings is entirely hand block printed, using traditional methods and classic patterns in new interpretations and colourations created exclusively by Schumacher. The designs vary in scale, from small and delicate bhuti prints and decoratively detailed stripes, to bold damask motifs, Greek key patterns and multi-hued paisleys. The timeless quality of these prints is enhanced with durable surfaces and inks, creating versatile wallcoverings that are suitable for a variety of modern and traditional interiors.

As frequent readers of Fabric Studio WHATS HOT will know, I have long had a bit of a thing for Blue-n-White ‘anything’. Well I would love to introduce you to the newest member of my collection – meet my gorgeous new chair just installed at our new apartment. It is so beautiful and even on the dullest day, brings the room to life. When it came to selecting ‘the’ blue-n-white fabric, I just had to go with Schumacher CHIANG MAI DRAGON/China Blue 173272 – I’ve admired this fabric for such a long time, and I am so thrilled with the result.
Even just a couple of cushions can bring such amazing energy into a room. It’s available in our online shop here!

PERFECT FOR SPRING HOME IMPROVEMENTS…………
People often say to me “I bet your home is amazing” – and I always answer “well it’s just like yours really, a mix of new, some not so new, and some really old family treasures that aren’t terribly valuable, but priceless to me!”
Many years ago, I rescued my paternal Grandmother’s old blanket box, that I believe transported some of her belongings when she emigrated from Wales as a 13 yr old girl.
Well, it’s just had a facelift and I thought I’d share a couple of pics with you. The fabric is Schumacher IMPERIAL TRELLIS VELVET/Chartreuse , the paint is Resene MONKEY, and, it also got a shiny new set of chrome caster/wheels from Warwick. Couldn’t me more thrilled!
