ZOF FANY - THE MUSE A RARE TREAT ! ! !


Jenna, my head designer, showroom manager and all-round lady that makes things happen (who also happens to be my daughter) and I often say that we have the best job in the world – apart from international rally driver or West End musical theatre star of course. We take people’s dreams and make them into a beautiful reality.


We are lucky enough to work in the middle to upper end of our trade, so get to enjoy and supply some of the most beautiful fabrics and wallcoverings in the world. Whilst all of us here at John Charles Interiors have our own distinctive style and personal preferences, we can of course produce a stunning interior from pretty much any brief, working with the vast array of interior product that is on the market these days.


I’ve said before that we all eagerly await the launch of new ranges, with varying degrees of oohing and aahing, depending on our own particular likes and not so likes. So imagine the level of excitement when a collection is released that not only ticks your own personal boxes, but takes it to a new level.


Well, for me Zoffany have just done exactly that !!! I absolutely love anything and everything Art Deco or Modernist, so the new collection entitled The Muse is right up my street.


Epitomising the spirit of the 1920s it encapsulates the sophistication and decadence of this exuberant era. The collection is a combination of refined extravagance mixed with hotel luxe – a look that’s currently in great demand.


Just as Orientalism captured the imagination of the era, there is a Far Eastern thread running through the collection. The striking designs, opulent in both colour and texture, are bold and captivating, beguiling and sensual. The colours they have used are a sumptuous palette indeed, distilled down to their original ‘essence’ and based on jewel-like colours found within the Zoffany archive. Temptingly named tones include Vine Black, Rose Quartz and Sahara for fabrics and Malachite, Prussian Blue and Smoked Pearl for wallcoverings. Although the one that most caught my attention was a colourway called Tiger’s Eye, used quite extensively throughout the collection. What actual colour is a tiger’s eye I asked? And who in their right mind wanted to get close enough to accurately find out?


The complete collection encompasses five complementary books: The Muse Fabrics, The Muse Wallcoverings, Oblique Wallpapers, Conway Velvets, Brooks, each book having for me its personal highlights.


Taisho, from the main fabric book, is an exquisite cloth in which lotus leaves have been intricately crafted to create the artwork for this dramatic design. Artisan gilding techniques heighten the natural characteristics found in this organic subject matter,
