The Tea House collection by James Dunlop brings old world charm back into today’s modern living by reinventing luxurious fabric designs. Inspired by the ritual of sharing tea and fueled by a resurgence in the global craft movement, Tea House is a collection of colourful patterned print designs with a traditional royal velvet.
‘Taking tea’ is not only a lifestyle, it is a sacred ritual observed all over the world. It ignores political divisions and broaches cultural boundaries; taking tea is the international language of ‘welcome to my home’. In Australia and New Zealand hosting visitors for tea in the front room harks from a colonial era that our inner city suburbs were built upon. This ritual continues in various forms throughout our diverse landscapes and is an inescapable part of the fabric of our lives.
The Tea House collection focuses on the intimate nature of ‘taking tea’. Large floral prints feature strong patterns and bold colours of tropical fauna, fresh herbs, cherry blossoms, and bird life, which sit alongside a sumptuous velvet making for a luxurious fabric collection.
