Feature Fabric Friday: Florence Broadhurst

Many of you have heard of the fabulous Australian artist, textile and wallpaper designer Florence Broadhurst who was creating divine interiors product in the 50's, 60's and 70's, but did you know that both her fabrics and papers are still being printed today?

Even after her grizzly death in 1977, Signature Prints has continued to produce a range of her designs from their Sydney premises, ensuring her iconic Asian and nature inspired, geometric and metallic patterns are still available worldwide. There are over 500 different designs within the original collection of work, but only a small portion are currently available to the public.

The softer colours and delicacy of the nature inspired scenes in many of the fabrics lend themselves to adorning a feminine boudoir, dressing or powder room, while the bold metallic wallpapers and geometric fabrics lend themselves to use in glamorous commercial environments, family areas or even kids rooms - but of course you are only limited by your imagination!

Here are just a few of our favourite fabrics, and of course if you see something you like, let us know!
