It was in the summer of 2008 that Lewis & Wood moved to Woodchester Mill, a magnificent building in the Stroud Valleys - a far cry from the company’s small beginnings in a London basement, where it was first formed by textile printer, Stephen Lewis and interior designer, Joanna Wood in 1993.
Since then, Lewis & Wood has created a substantial collection of textiles and wallpapers, largely manufactured in Britain, which have proved extremely popular amongst a discerning clientele. There is a commitment within the company to produce original designs under the leadership of Magdalen Jebb, all the while co-operating with weavers, dyers, printers and finishers to try out new techniques.
It makes for wallpaper creations that are very interesting as well as being very attractive. The classic collection, for example, includes designs featuring maritime, hunting scenes, horses, fish and fishing, calligraphy, birds and florals. In addition to the patterns there are other wallpapers with striking stripes and tantalising tartans. A new wide width range has also been launched, with exciting new colour combinations to the Adam's Eden and Jasper Peony designs.
