Over the years, Anna’s business has been driven by her determination to remain bold and original. From the vibrant designs she began producing at art school in the 1960s to the big, brilliant wallpaper and fabrics that make up her collections, Anna’s style is always evolving. Her courageous use of colour and flair for the dramatic remain unchanged.
Thibaut acquired the assets of Anna French in 2007 and continue her long tradition for uniquely designed fabrics and wallcoverings with new and innovative product that is timeless. Anna French has brought Thibaut increased presence in the UK and Europe, along with an office and distribution center in South London near the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour, where a showroom for both lines is operated by Jacaranda Carpets. “Wallpaper in London is hot. And in America it is making a comeback, with consumers spending more time at home and wanting to make more fashionable and stylish statements in their living space. My striking wallpapers are an essential backdrop to glamorous living,” she states.
As her artistic flair spills over into her personal and family life, Anna continues to follow her passion for creating beautiful environments.
Beauty in natural movements. I am often inspired by the simple designs of nature around me. Poised butterflies flutter amongst wooded areas full of flowers, trees and foliage or the elegant scrolls of iron palace gates make a charming motif. Seraphina is a collection of wallpapers that celebrates everyday treasures in a sophisticated palette of harmonious hues.
I’m thrilled to present Wild Flora, a collection where traditional designs delightfully mingle with modern twists: document designs dance on foils and non-woven papers, flowers bloom into a reflective element, whites coordinate on white, and black with glitter transforms into a tarnished mirror effect. Pushing the boundaries has never been so fun; I hope you enjoy these papers as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Great literature or a walk in the forest can be my favorite escapes. The best inspiration comes from connecting with nature. The Zola wallpaper collection is an artful interpretation of the elements that shape the world around us. Vibrant bursts of colour combine with interesting pattern and bold florals to depict an image of vitality and possibility
With a passion for creative expression, Serenade by Anna French is a masterful compilation of wallcoverings that pays homage to English culture. Harmonizing patterns range from intricate paisleys, vining florals, and baroque damasks to simple geometrics, coordinating stripes and printed textures. All patterns are printed on non-woven paper using state-of-the-art printing methods in adventurous color palettes.
