Add verve to a hallway with a vivacious damask wallpaper. Based on a 19th-century textile, it boosts period palettes to the max…

Offset by a daringly dark backdrop, an updated oriental weave pops with pure colour. Anchor with a Persian rug for full effect.

Get a flavour of the exotic east with a selection of ethnic-print fabrics in a range of jewel-bright shades.

For a hit of Forties glamour, display compelling designs in front of a classic silk textile reimagined as an oversized print.

Pimp up seating with upholstery in an array of patterns. Unusual wallpaper motifs give the parlour-room setting a modern edge.

Team classic and contemporary with a striped fabric based on a Syrian silk and a funky lamp shade inspired by oriental souks.

Revive the passion for paisley with a pattern in blown-up form – echo its swirling shapes on chic citrus window treatments.

A riot of bold popping colour, this extravagant ikat Jacquard offers a fresh take on traditional embroidered textiles.

Give a bathing space some hammam pizzazz with decorative tile detailing. Painted panelling is another nod to luxe oriental style.
