Why I love Fermoie

I love using Fermoie designs in my projects, they work so beautifully in both classic and contemporary settings, adding colour and style to the space. I love the palette of colours, and the pretty patterns. They are iconic. I can always recognise a Fermoie fabric. 

I love the fact that this is a truly sustainable brand that champions British craftmanship.  What makes Fermoie so unique is their design and printing technique. Layers of colour on textured weaves shines through to give depth and interest to every project, and their extensive range of over 400 designs come in textured linen fabrics and luxurious cottons, which work beautifully for lampshades, blinds, curtains and upholsteries.

I can’t wait to use their latest Autumn collection, ‘Carskiey’, hand drawn textural stripes in unusual colour ways.

Fermoie lampshades add the finishing touches to any scheme. With their bright colourful pleated linens they provide layers of pattern and texture. 

These ‘Wicker’  lampshades in orange, illustrated below, add a highlight of colour, picking up colours in the artwork, and repeated in other accessories such as candles and vases in the room. It gives a playful, bright and bold style to this playroom.

We commissioned a large gathered lampshade, made by our lampshade maker Ashoka Designs, in Fermoie ‘Mendip’ fabric to add drama and a sense of scale in this new barn conversion.

And a ‘Wicker’ lampshade, in pink, was chosen for a recent country house project to compliment the pink and blue tones of this elegant scheme.

I use ‘Marden’ fabric (cushion behind) in my bespoke cushion collection, to add sophisticated detailing, without competing with other more detailed fabrics and textures in the room. It works equally well covering a headboard in this pretty bedroom scheme, commissioned for a young girl.
