The exciting and exuberant Ardmore Collection by Cole and Son is the product of a collaboration with leading ceramics designers, Ardmore Ceramic Art. This bold and exotic wallpaper range tells stories, asks questions and creates a feature in any space. Ardmore’s charming ceramic designs are known for their strong African heritage and rooting the African traditions and culture storytelling through craft and the Cole and Son Ardmore Wallpaper Collection works to capture this essence across the range.
The Ardmore Wallpaper Collection by Cole and Son is a conversational collection, highly pictorial and packed with vibrant colours, characters and choices. Both border and standard wallpapers are available and this entirely new collection for the 21st century brings a completely original and unique edge to their expansive range.
Ardmore Ceramics are world-renowned for their beauty and craftsmanship and it is this which attracted Cole and Son to the collaboration. On both sides the collection is something to be treasured and celebrated and its exuberance something to be proud of. The stylish range brings together fun and bold designs. Celebrating African arts and culture, the collection explores the flora and fauna of Africa, with designs incorporating majestic big cats, exotic birds and mischievous primates. Beautiful and traditional African patterns are brought to life in a modern, designer fashion as part of the Cole and Son Ardmore Collection. The range includes many striking designs in a rainbow of colours including:
Savuti: one of Africa’s best-known national parks, Savuti is home to the hoopoe and hornbill birds, as well as characterful baboons and fascinating plant life, including flowering Coral Trees. The Savuti Wallpaper captures the essence of this atmosphere.
Khulu Vases: Khulu translates into English as meaning ‘most important’ and with a classical feel this wallpaper displays an elegant range of Khulu Vases decorated and entwined with wildlife, African animals and a watercolour-like style.
Ardmore Cameos: combining classic design and captivating Ardmore-inspired style, this Ardmore Cameos wallpaper pictorially represents a beautiful collection of plates originally created as a wedding gift for a ‘friend of Ardmore.’
The whole Ardmore Collection combines a mixture of highly personal and extremely charming and original designs. Many of the designs are available in a choice of colourways and the palettes are often chosen with inspiration from the natural landscape, bringing out the vibrancy of the African rainforests, waters and the native plant life. Whilst the wallpapers are definitely charming and have a sense of light humour and fun, the Ardmore Collection is also highly sophisticated and celebrates African culture with exquisite attention to detail.

Growing from block print designs to modern wallpapers, they have one of the world’s largest wallpaper and print design archives and many of their collections are over a hundred years old.
