Claire Coles

Claire Coles designs wallpaper which she embroiders into. Carefully sourcing vintage wallpaper she layers
printed silk and embroiders into it with silk and leather to create texture. What a dream! Her clients include Liberty, Selfridges and Ted Baker. I would adore to have something this beautiful on my wall. Not only has she done wallpaper designs but also designs for Paperchase and Missoni. I love the use of beautiful retro and classic floral images but in such a contemporary form. This is the type of effect im pushing for within my own textiles work. I'll try and post some of my own responses to her work in the next few days.
