Jacobean design Textile & Wallpaper

The meeting of Victorian England and India

An inexhaustible source of inspiration, endowed with an ornamental vocabulary of flowers, birds, tree of life and decorative leaves, the Jacobean style permeates some of our creations. It was initially an architectural style succeeding the Elizabethan style of which it retained the influence from Italian Renaissance.

Popular in 17th century England, it finds its source in Flemish tapestry and in Indiennes and palampores imported from Orient by the English East India Trading Company.

The fluid and undulating plant motifs of Indian inspiration are reinterpreted in Western decorative arts and still persist in the 19th century thanks to the Arts and Crafts movement.
Today, it remains an essential classic element of contemporary design.
