Cole & Son

Cole & Son was founded in 1875 by John Perry, son of a Cambridgeshire merchant. In those days the company was situated in Islington, north London, an area famous for the 190 hand block printing companies working there in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Today, the Cole & Son archive consists of approximately 1,800 block print designs, 350 screen print designs and a huge quantity of original drawings and wallpapers, representing all the styles from the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Amongst these are some of the most important historic wallpaper designs in the world. Cole & Son has provided wallpapers for many historic houses including Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament and has collaborated with designers such as David Hicks and incorporated elements from the Fornasetti archives.

Cole & Son continues to produce innovative and beautiful designs; their current collections reflect their long and distinguished history as well as their continuing passion for new and exciting wallpapers.
