Even if you could find a house with an uninterrupted view of a pastoral scene like the one depicted in Lewis & Wood’s exquisite new Royal Oak fabric, the chances are that it would be prohibitively expensive. Or if you could afford it, you would be gazumped. Or the local farmer would have just flogged the pastoral scene for development into a retail park, a housing estate and a six lane bypass. Far better to create the same view for yourself with the sort of design which reminds you that fabric is about so much more than curtains and upholstery – it’s an opportunity to create your own private paradise.
