The new Arts and Crafts trend embraces the iconic 19th century movement, born out of the industrial revolution. Arts and Crafts reformed how things were made and tried to reverse the damaging effects of machine-dominated production, increasing the value of hand-made, decorative pieces.
Arts and Crafts raised the social status of artisan crafts including textiles, furniture, and ceramics, embracing a very distinct, decorative design that was influenced by rural traditions and countryside living. At the heart of the movement was the idea that art and craftsmanship could have a positive impact on people’s lives, changing society for the better.
Over 140 years later and Arts and Crafts has made a return in the 21st century, sparking a renewed appreciation for craftsmanship and high-quality materials. Homeowners are appreciating tactile, artisanal elements in their living spaces and as we slowly approach the autumn months, textured fabrics that embrace the warmth and feel of the artisan are perfect for cosy interiors.
Bring the trend into the 21st century with designs from our Hampstead collection, offering a rustic feel with traditional Jacobeans, pin-tuck mosaics, and crewel embroideries in a variety of antique and on-trend colour palettes.
From statement upholstery in Apsley or Kenwood, curtains in the stunning Bayswater embroidery or mix and match cushions Richmond, Chiswick and Highgate; Hampstead offers a country-living feel inspired by the great British outdoors.
Layering different textures adds depth into a living space, so complement the standout, linen-blend designs from Hampstead with textured plain fabrics, like those from our Concept, Rustic and Runway collections.
