Elegant Mellow Richness

Grandiflora Rose, the Spring Summer 2020 collection for Designers Guild encompasses decorative fabric collection of floral prints, elaborate embroideries and complex geometrics, plus versatile textured wallpapers and four new plain and essential fabric textures.  


Grandiflora Rose florals and geometrics are printed onto soft-brushed cotton, linen and rich velvet with embroideries on linen union.  Glasshouse is a contemporary geometric pattern with a unique block technique in dynamic embroidery. Yulan is an impressive grand scale rendition of Magnolias, blossoming against a soft watercolour ground. The diversity of this collection offers an opportunity to create a multitude of styles when paired with the rest of the seasons release. 


Chinon Wallpapers, textured vinyl emulating the appearance of a natural silk but with the advantages of non-woven backed vinyl. The colour palette offers rich earthy tones, stunning blues and greens alongside elegant neutrals. Both the Chinon and Brera designs are perfect for full room coverage, offering a fantastic opportunity to grow your wallpaper business, especially when specified as an alternative to paint. Combine with the adaption of our best-selling Manipur for layered effects. 

Manipur is back. This global best-seller is now offered in 24 colours, 12 or which are new this season. A rich cut pile velvet offers perfectly scaled hexagons with a unique woven ground, making for the perfect coordinate or statement in your interior scheme for curtains and upholstery alike.  

Corda, a pure cotton corduroy, will revitalise textured upholstery in natural fibres. This soon to be a best-selling fabric is hard wearing and versatile and comes in earthy neutrals and vivid bright. Make the most of it in all environments as it is also washable. Smart Trevira CS technology is a wonder fabric, with amazing qualities including excellent colour fastness, durability and inherently fire retardant.  Suitable for contract projects with 60,000 rubs but ideal for your residential scheme, Eriska is an elegant two-tone textured weave woven in 100% Trevira CS. With Oeko-tex accreditation, you can also be assured no harmful chemical are used in manufacturing and this versatile upholstery fabric is also washable.  

The Christian Lacroix experience continues with L’odysee fabrics and wallpaper. Sacha translates the touchpoints for Maison Lacroix and its couture collections for the last Ten years, an odysee of exploration. Trailing flowers, panoramic scenes and mesmerising feathers infuse the useable collection, perfectly capturing the spirit of discovery.  

This year marks 50 years of Designers Guild and the London Fashion & Textiles Museum is honouring Tricia Guild with an exhibition called Out of The Blue, running from February 14th- June 2020. The SS2020 collection is in many ways a subtle nod to an extensive design archive over the years. However, Designers Guild has an amazing way of setting the trends, whilst staying true to their DNA.
