Overview

The story of England’s leading manufacturer of wallpapers and decorative fabrics, illustrated with archival images and specially taken photographs.
Picture the interior of the quintessential English home—whether the chintz parlor of a Victorian row house, a postwar urban flat, or the majestic blue drawing room of Buckingham Palace—and you inevitably picture Sanderson. For 150 years Sanderson has been at the vanguard of every significant movement in European decorative arts, from Arts and Crafts and Art Deco to 1980s country-house style to the vibrant interiors of the twenty-first century, shaping a distinctive style of English decoration beloved throughout the world.
Granted unprecedented access to the Sanderson archives, Mary Schoeser relates the history of the company from its founding to the present day. A preface by renowned British fashion designer Zandra Rhodes and an introduction by Whitworth curator Christine Woods celebrate the importance of the “Sanderson style” in modern British decoration and design.
With over 200 patterns specially selected from the Sanderson archives and reproduced in full color, this book is a font of inspiration for decorators, designers, graphic artists, and collectors.
