Nicola Lawrence, Textiles and Papers is an Australian business specialising in artisanal, hand blocked and hand screen printed textiles and wallpapers of exceptional design and quality, to both retail and trade (the collections for whom Nicola Lawrence represents to trade are noted on the page of each).
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While many of the prints are based on or inspired by historical documents, they are timeless and contemporary and suit the diversity of the Australian landscape, climate and interiors.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 to the Nicola Lawrence 'stable' is Nicole Fabre Designs, a French, hand screen printed and hand woven collection which is very beautiful and which Nicola Lawrence is thrilled to offer. Further new collections are in the planning. Watch this space for details, or stay in touch via Instagram, Facebook or by email subscription (register via 'The Edit').
