Sailing themes and America’s Cup

Pierre Frey Panarea Wellington Design Library

In design much inspiration comes from the activities that surround us and in turn design also inspires emotion.

At WDL we think these designs mirror the hope and excitment surrounding America’s Cup – whether you like the billowy sails, the swaying ocean or perhaps those strapping lads at the helm, we hope, like all great design, they’ll strike a chord with you!

Paisley Revival


Paisley has been spotted all over the Spring/Summer 2013 runways and appeared across the catwalk during London Fashion Week.





The distinctive swirling pattern has long and varied history, involving interior furnishings, Scottish shawls, and the swinging sixties. And it all began way out East.
