With a prestigious client list such as Ham House, Hampton Court and Powis Castle; Watts of Westminster has an incredibly rich history of British decorative design.
Watts of Westminster wallpaper and fabrics have also decorated a number of distinguished places such as the House of Lords, Westminster Palace, The Wallace Collection and the acclaimed “7 star hotel” Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Their iconic designs also regularly feature on film sets which have included Bond: Skyfall, Anna Karenina, Les Miserables and Sherlock Holmes.
With an extensive archive of period designs, Watts of Westminster has carefully protected a vast and sophisticated collection of exceptional period designs, which have proven to repeatedly stand the test of time.
The iconic English company maintains an individual, eclectic design ethic, which has become the antidote to the neutral palette adopted by designers in the last decade.
The new collection of wallpaper designs “The Tuileries” by Watts of Westminster was recently exhibited and launched at Decorex International 2013. This romantic collection stemming from 18th century designs range from Rococo to Regency, and are named after the Parisian gardens where lovers meet to promenade along flower-strewn paths.
The wallpaper collection is a fine offering from a historic company with a legacy in British decorative design.
