Zoffany Woodville


The beautiful Woodville collection from Zoffany, available at our showroom, follows classic chinoiserie design, but by utilising modern print techniques it has been given a contemporary edge. ‘Woodville’ evokes a sophisticated and romantic mood, perfect for Country Houses and is equally at home wherever a touch of elegance is sought to achieve a timeless beauty.  The following photographs show the wallpaper, and both the linen and silk fabric in room settings.


Woodville Linen in old Blue used to upholster the french bed with Lewis and Wood wallpaper in the background.  All available at Ian Thompson Interior Design.

Console Me…


The console table, homage for many a duty.  Perfect for the entrance hall, dressed with table lamps and flowers.  Great for a drinks table or in the dining room, for setting down heavy platters to serve from.  They are narrow and can also be used, if your space is limited, as a desk or dressing table.  If there’s space underneath, use it for positioning extra stools, or chinese ceramic seats, this can also hide ghastly radiators and a life saver when entertaining and you run out of seats.  No matter what size your area is, we have the perfect Console Table for you, should it be a small wall mounted console or a large banquet for an over scale design.

Here are some images to show you different ways to use the Console and off-course a few examples of what’s available to purchase at our showroom.


A well dressed Console, with beautiful stools stored underneath.

Space was limited in this hall, so a glass console, keeps the space open.

Hate your current Console, call into the showroom to pick a beautiful fabric and drape it over your existing console.  As Pablo Paniagua has (image from Nuevo Estilo).

Autumnal Inspiration


Exciting new fabric and wallpapers have just arrived at the showroom.  Whilst opening the beautiful collection, clients have oohed and aahed over the rich and bold textures of Zoffany’s new Jaipur collection.  

Over the last two years the trend has pushed us all to create rooms in a nude palette, saying that, don’t panic it means you have spent wisely, you already have the perfect canvas for this new revamp.  

It’s time to  inject colour and vitality to your subtle pastel rooms and Zoffany have purposefully designed this range with that in mind, a mix of artistic Indian and Persian weaves that will transform your interiors with a modern twist.
