U.K. visitor attraction inspires line of linens, cottons and velvets.
The British Museum has tapped Arley House to produce a range of branded fabrics illustrated with designs from the Museum’s collection.
TSBA Group, the British Museum’s licensing agent, brokered the deal.
The collection will feature the British Museum’s Ancient Egypt and Asia collections on a variety of printed linens, cottons and velvets for cushions and upholstery.
“The British Museum cares for beautiful and iconic objects that tell the history of the world over millions of years,” says Adrian Tratalos, managing director, Arley House. “What better match for a company that sees itself as the home of historical art in design. We are delighted to be partnering with the British Museum on this wonderful range.”
Arley House’s British Museum collection will be available through a number of U.K. interior designers and specialist design retailers, as well as the Arley House showroom in Cheshire and online later this year.
“This collection combines beautiful fabric and details from British Museum objects brought together by the skills of the Arley House design team,” says Ian Mallalue, chief executive officer, TSBA Group. “I’m sure it will enjoy a very strong response from specialist retail across the U.K.”
