An Exclusive Fabric Boutique.
Representing the vivacious artist Mally Skok who handscreens her fabrics in Massachusetts yet, like him, is also a native South African; the considered, conscious and ethical work of Philip Pikus who weaves from linen and bamboo in Cape Town; the fabrics of Robert Kime, master of British interior design; and Abigail Borg’s sophisticated, intense and detailed collection, all printed in the UK, and Abnormals Anonymous, wild or tame these animal filled prints are a collision of style and humour.
Carleton V, blending traditional and transitional textiles and wallcoverings, is a family owned company founded by the famed American decorator Carleton Varney in 1978. Today, Carleton V is owned and run by his son, Sebastian Varney, who drives the brand forward by combining a mixture of classic European, American, and global design elements with the company’s foundation of traditional pattern and color into today’s evolving marketplace.
Renowned watercolour botanical artist, Katharine Amies has artworks in collections at both the Hunt Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and the Shirley Sherwood Gallery at Kew Gardens. Trained at the Chelsea Physic Garden in 2001, her work seeks to capture the intimate essence of plants in a manner that photographs, in spite of their detail, fail to convey. Her considered and detailed work is also sold into high profiled private collections. Katharine Amies has collaborated with the Fabric Room by Justin Van Breda with this exciting, new and exclusive botanical fabric line. Katharine lives in Berkshire with her family, working closely with her father, Charles Flower, who has pioneered the movement of countryside restoration since the 1980’s working with Natural England.
