BUTTERFLY HOUSE

"Butterfly house" is the latest collection of exuberant printed fabrics from No.9 Thompson.

Richard Smith has taken inspiration from Chinese ceramics, textiles, lacquerwork and reinterpreted these through his inimitable, hand-painted artwork.

Whilst the palette remains true to No.9 there are also new and exciting colors to tempt and inspire, amongst which charcoal, lilac and citron are just three Ö

Needless to say, with the introduction of the long awaited, first No.9 wallpaper collection, several designs cross over both medium and all work harmoniously together.

NB. The pattern books will also include Palm Plain and Chinese Checkers from the outdoor wovens.

The labyrinthine layout to this graphic, 3-dimensional embroidery works well with the more painterly feel of the co-ordinating prints. The scale makes it perfect for curtains and it would look wonderful used for headboards and bedspreads.
