Some of the most beautiful wallpapers in the Cole and Son Collection are brought together in this enchanting modern range. It is a genuine collection of modern classics which incorporates some stylish motifs, fun characters and mesmerising patterns. The prints in this range embody the spirit of design from the 1950s and 1960s and bring it into the heart of the 21st century. The original designs have been coloured in a way which makes them a beautiful choice for your home.
Cole and Son have been creating and designing beautiful designs since the 19th century. Beyond this they also have the huge added benefit of their expansive archive to draw from when creating new collections. The Cole and Son print archive includes over 1800 block prints and over 350 screen print designs, as well as many completed wallpapers and as mentioned it is the designs of the 1950s and 1960s which characterise this New Contemporary Collection.
The popularity of the New Contemporary Collection meant that Cole and Son went onto create a further New Contemporary II Collection. Many of the designs in this range were created by well-known designers of the 50s and 60s and some of their patterns have been so popular that they have been used again in further collections by Cole and Son, notably their Contemporary Restyled range.
The designs in this collection have been created in a time where innovation was rife. Post-war Britain was a country full of modernisation and everything from machine printing to awe-inspiring colours and the use of new techniques and processes such as the inclusion of foils in the design process were becoming more and more popular. The timeless nature of this collection means that New Contemporary wallpapers look just as cutting edge in the 21st century living room as they did when they were first produced.
The range includes an eclectic range of original patterns and papers. They span from Malabar which gives the paisley pattern an uplift and a chance to shine to Hicks Moghul which takes the work of renowned designer David Hicks and presents simple geometric design in a range of eye-catching colourways. The range also includes the simplicity of Pompeian which is a simple but wonderfully coloured trellis-style wallpaper and of course, Flamingos which stands out as a fun and frivolous design which still maintains a sense of Cole and Son elegance.
Excitement and a wide array of bold and beautiful colours characterise this collection. Each design is available in a choice of different shades making it possible to invest in your favourite New Contemporary design in a colourway which suits your home. There are neutral options as well as those showing off bright pinks, yellows and oranges. Some of the papers are ideal as statement choices whilst others can be used to paper your whole home with ease and add that charming, high quality feel that only Cole and Son wallpaper can deliver.
