Rapture and Wright … a discovery at Decorex
At Decorex in September while buying my morning espresso I discovered Rapture & Wright, one of the few fabric companies at the exhibition that really stood out for me. The company had a large stand displaying their full range of hand-printed fabrics and wallpapers that drew me and many other visitors in to learn more about their range.
The company was started by Rebecca Aird and Peter Thwaites in a farm barn nearly 10 years ago and has grown by following the philosophy that they want to be 100% British. The cloth for their fabrics is woven in the UK with the designs handprinted in their studio. If you want to buy British then Rapture & Wright would be a great choice!
The Birds and Butterflies fabric shown above would add a subtle print to any room. Available in 6 different colourways it would be a great fabric to use if you wanted to recover a piece of upholstered furniture in your home to add interest. The print features a number of different birds mixed with butterflies in contrasting colours.
The Mandalay fabric shown above (in the back of a Beetle!) features the imagery of trees. This simple print could easily be combined with any of the rest of the range to add a layered look to your interior. Rapture & Wright also produce a great range of handprinted wallpaper, Beauvallon shown below would certainly make a statement in any interior!
The company will also produce lampshades in any size in any of their fabrics. The burnt orange lining will help to transfer the light from low energy bulbs into a beautiful glow. Adding bespoke lampshades is often a clever way to add a high-end look for a relatively small budget.
Do have a look at their range when you are next choosing fabric or wallpaper. To help you out the company even has an app for the iPhone or the Ipad. Clearly this company is thinking about the future and going places.
