AWARD WINNING DESIGN 

In 2014 Bacchus won the Homes & Gardens Fabric Awards for BEST PRINTED FABRIC. The judges said of Bacchus:

“Different to anything else, Lewis & Wood’s fabric is interesting and beautiful with a stunning soft palette”


The Project in Brief

This flamboyant design is my adaptation of a rare Elizabethan wall painting that survives in a house in Kent. Lewis & Wood came to my studio and selected this multivine from my collection of historic designs. I enjoyed the challenge of deconstructing what was originally a 2m x 5m mural and transforming it into a vertical, half-drop repeat. I then painted the artwork on paper ready to be translated into printed linen and wide-width wallpaper at the Lewis & Wood headquarters in the Cotswolds.

Bacchus, so called for the bacchanalian grapes amongst other fruit, vegetables, snails and butterflies, also features its original borders. These are cleverly incorporated into the repeat so that they can be trimmed and repositioned by the creative decorator.
