Timeless and elegant, two new soft furnishing and curtain fabric designs from British fabric brand Fermoie celebrate artisanal techniques and a contemporary approach to pattern. In 16 colourways, Quantock and Chiltern are delicate hand-drawn geometrics, block-printed onto 100% linen (£96m, W134cm). The deceptively simple designs have real depth and laid-back sophistication.
Quantock is a medium-width stripe combined with interlinked diamonds. Its distinctive soft lines with gentle variations in shading and colour add character and interest. Piled up as cushions, we think it would add a splendid modern lift to a traditional, plain-upholstered sofa.
Chiltern is a weave of rectangular blocks that result in both a chevron and herringbone composition. Why not pick a bolder shade from the colour palette and create a statement ottoman? It would sit beautifully in an otherwise pared-back space.
Both new designs, as with all Fermoie fabrics, are made to order using traditional printing techniques and the finest quality linen at the brand’s factory in Marlborough, Wiltshire. Having been launched by Tom Helme and Martin Ephson, best known as the partnership behind Farrow & Ball, Fermoie’s smart, chic approach doesn’t surprise us, or its dedication to preserving traditional skills. As well as Quantock and Chiltern, there are a host of stylish colours and patterned fabrics to choose from, designed for easy mixing and matching.
And like all Fermoie fabrics, Quantock and Chiltern are suitable for soft furnishings, drapery and accessories. The brand’s collection of co-ordinating accessories include cushions and fabric lampshades.
