The Fromental Framed Fragments show is an opportunity to watch a master at work, and to take home some wall art of your own
When it comes to wall paper, not all walls are papered equally.
Established in 2005, wall covering specialists Fromental create ‘couture for walls’ in a unique collaboration between designers and craftsmen in London and China.
With their background in fashion and interiors, partners Tim Butcher and Lizzie Deshayes blend traditional techniques with contemporary style.
Their wall coverings are hand painted and hand stitched masterpieces, making them the last word in luxury for your walls.
Inspired by 18th Century chinoiserie, each individual panel can take up the artist to 600 hours of work.

On September 22 head down to their open studio event for your chance to see the process behind these unique wall coverings.
As part of London Design Week, Fromental will open the doors of their Queens Park show flat, giving viewers a rare opportunity to observe the head artist at work.

The craft obviously requires a significant amount of dexterity and skill, so this is one occasion where watching paint dry will be interesting.
The designs are works of art in themselves and should you wish to have some slivers framed to hang upon your wall (in a mind bending wall decoration inception) then you’re in luck.
Fragments of their signature chinoiserie, along with printed, hand painted and hand embroidered pieces of artwork will be on sale, with prices ranging from £190 - £675.
