New 2018 Collections from our Exhibitors

We are thrilled to confirm that LinwoodIan Mankin and Ian Sanderson have announced that they will be launching their new 2018 collections at this year's London Interior Show. Read the article below to find out about their new collections.


Linwood are proud to present two new collections for Autumn/Winter 18 at the London Interior Show, Mismi and Omega Prints.

Mismi is an exciting contemporary wool collection, a world away from the traditional plaids and stripes associated with wool. Taking inspiration from the patterns of South America the collection combines charming designs with a contemporary colour palette. From soft neutrals and pastels, to bright, vibrant accents Mismi is breath of fresh air.

At Linwood we design and supply high quality fabrics and wallpapers with an exceptional level of service. Our range includes a wide variety of collections comprising weaves, prints and plains as well as wallpapers for every interior. Our creative team design beautiful, thoughtful and carefully crafted collections, drawing their inspiration from textile archives, museums and the natural world.


Omega Prints uses our ever-popular high-performance Omega Velvet to showcase an eclectic range of bold prints. The collection features 50 colourways over 16 designs and includes conversationals, florals and geometrics in styles from contemporary though to classical, all with one thing in common, the soft matt feel of Omega Velvet.



Ian Mankin

Introducing the Coast collection from Ian Mankin, accented by deeply saturated cobalt and aged indigo it speaks of a life lived by the sea, calming and restorative. At its core are chalky hues of oatmeal and soft white with greyed-sky blues. Comprising over 36 fabrics from gossamer lightweight sheers to chunky textured chenille in linen and cotton these are traditionally crafted, 100% natural fabrics, designed and skilfully woven in Lancashire.


Layer tone and texture

Our signature stripes take their familiar position in this collection but with the addition of striking geometric repeats in Maze and Knot reminiscent of the classic Greek key and abstract textured weaves that reflect breaking waves on the shoreline. The building blocks of colour in the collection are Oatmeal, Chalk and Mist - a soft blue/grey shade, layered with Cobalt and multi-tonal Indigo yarns. The subtle shades can be used as an anchor, adding in accents of the bolder colours to build the story. The vivid clarity of blues are mellowed by soporific textures of chunky chenille and abstract cotton/linen weaves. In a simple room opt for a bold print and colour on a key piece, or go for understated in a trim or cushion. Windows dressed with gossamer linen sheers and a contrasting heavyweight cotton allow light to disperse through the room yet still create a tactile and cosy space. The combinations are limited only by your imagination.

Ian Sanderson

Ian Sanderson Fabrics will be launching the Coulibri Collection at London Interior Show. This classical, colonial and colourful collection featuring natural yarns, fabulous colours and enticing design, is centred around Jessamy, an intricate paisley on a fine linen. Jessamy comes in a palette of twenty colourways, ranging from fresh to dark and from pretty to vibrant so there is something for every interior. Entwined with Jessamy are two beautiful new stripes - Callow, a soft linen herringbone in seven sympathetic shades, and Pyjama, featuring a playful mix of coordinating colours woven in fine cotton with a light calender finish. Coulibri links to other Ian Sanderson collections through the inclusion of Peverell Check in this new collection - an antique looking linen check woven with stria yarns by artisans who are passionate about their art.

Ian Sanderson has been designing and producing fabric for upholstery and soft furnishings since 1962. Their collections are inspired by modern day living with bold explorations into historical and traditional designs. Classic linens are featured alongside sumptuous velvets, and a solid core of plain and semi plain fabrics are complemented by an eclectic range of elaborate prints and weaves, ranging from contemporary geometrics to traditional tickings. Vibrant colours complement more thoughtful tones.
