Our upholstered bedheads and bedroom furniture are custom made by our fabulous team of upholsterers in Melbourne who work their magic with the most incredible fabrics.
I have always been passionate about textiles, drawing inspiration from my spending time in English country houses, as well as fabrics such as Osborne & Little and Liberty London.
Being Australian Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we take a look at some of our favourite Australian female fabric designers that bring so much life and colour into our world and indeed our Heatherly products.
The iconic, daring, provocative Florence Broadhurst was truly ahead of her time in terms of entrepreneurism and dazzling designs. She was born in remote Queensland in 1899 and launched her Paddington studio in 1959 after a long stint overseas.
Bold and colourful, her fabrics and wallpapers portray geometric patterns, birds, flora and fauna and Japanese-inspired themes.
Here we incorporated her Tropical Floral wallpaper in the photoshoot of our Fulham bed in Ella Peacock.
Pattern perfection abounds in New South Wales-born Catherine Martin’s designs and we love to use her fabrics in our upholstery.
Whether a subtle touch of braiding on our Astor bedhead, or the luxurious Leopardo Sapphire Velvet of our Crosby Chair, Catherine embodies the glamour and lavishness of art deco and bygone eras.
What a joy it is to work with Anna Spiro! We collaborated with this Brisbane-based Interior Designer for our first Art Series and adore her creativity with pattern and colour. Her eclectic and eccentric styling is absolutely in line with my style ethos.
All her fabrics are hand-screen printed which adds to the delightful texture and works in harmony with our handcrafted products.
We are thankful and inspired to work with such innovators and so on International Women’s Day we salute these talented, Australian artists.
