Nicola Lawrence, Textiles and Papers is an Australian retail business specialising in artisanal, hand blocked and hand screen printed textiles and wallpapers of exceptional design and quality.
Nicola Lawrence studied decorating and design history at the Inchbald School of Design in London. On return to Australia, Nicola recognised an opportunity to introduce and provide access to beautifully printed textiles and wallpapers, particularly those produced by smaller supply textile and interior designer artisans. Nicola Lawrence is also able to source and supply textiles and papers from larger fabric houses not listed on the site.
The designers and their ranges have been carefully selected by Nicola Lawrence for the bespoke, diverse and specialist nature of the product and the beautiful and individual fabrics and wallpapers that have resulted from these traditional processes. The collection is designed and printed in countries including England, France, Belgium, Italy, America and Australia.
While many of the prints are based on or inspired by historical documents, they are timeless and contemporary and suit the diversity of the Australian landscape, climate and interiors. The decorating sensibility of the designers reflects longevity, pattern, layering, recycling, loving what you have, buying well and finding one’s own style.
New collections Les Indiennes, Georgia Macmillan Designs and Sarah Vanrenen Designs have just been added with a further addition planned shortly. Watch this space for details, or stay in touch via Instagram, Facebook or by email subscription (register via 'The Edit').
