By Laura Newton –

I visited the Decorex exhibition at the end of September and amongst the elaborate lighting and long established furnishing companies there were some fresh looks from contemporary businesses that are embracing the Digital Printing era.

Here are some of my favourites:



Blackpop is an independent British label specialising in creating elegantly distressed wallpapers, fabrics and upholstered furniture, which punk up the rich tapestry of the past to create opulent yet random anarchic patterns.

Their designs are manufactured in the UK using the latest in digital technology and are celebrated by both commercial and domestic clients worldwide. With an expert eye for detail, pattern and colour, Maxine Hall, Director and Designer for Blackpop excels in creating collections that are remarkable for their beauty, opulence and innovative style.



More Art, Less Decoration.

Feathr are a Scandinavian company who have a passion for the Arts. They work with a growing global community of independent artists by sourcing, curating, commissioning and making stunning, modern and unique designer wallpapers and fabrics.


Tom, Anne and Oli started as they wanted to work with people who share our passions: art, big ideas, design, craft, interiors.

‘We want to unboring your home’

‘We give independent artists a new canvas and total freedom’




Established in 2011 by Jo Bound, Boeme set about creating a furnishing brand of beautiful fabrics and interior products. Created in the Boeme studio from Jo Bound’s original fine art paintings ; exploration into the natural world of plants, landscapes whilst experimenting with painting techniques keeps the Boeme aesthetic alive. These joyous, expressive works are translated with a wealth of experience in textile design.


The Boeme signature appeals to those, who are committed to sourcing statements pieces  from a bold non-conformist portfolio.
