Velvet is popping up on fall runway this season as pictured above in the latest range from Ralph Lauren. This trend is resonating through out interior design. Here’s a few glorious printed velvets at WDL.

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.

Spectacular tiles


Decorative tiles have adorned the façades of ancient Persian temples, Islamic mosques, palaces, medieval cottages and castles, Victorian churches, and modern homes.

Ceramic tiles can be used to fantastic effect creating a dramatic space within a modern interior. A space that is both spectacular and bold, eclectic, and tailored to the individual.

Floor tiles are generally made of ceramic or stone, however with recent technological advances rubber and glass tiles are now readily available from flooring specialists.




The room was full and overflowing


_DSC0023David Trubridge is rather clever. He’s also a keen sailor and  a bit of an adventurer.

In 1972, he graduated with a degree in Naval Architecture (Boat Design) and then he taught himself to make furniture.

Now, David is a New Zealand-based designer whose lighting, furniture and sculptural installations are found all over the world.

On Thursday, he gave an insightful presentation about the prints he has designed for Hemptech and his latest creative adventure, So Far, a book about his journey as an artist and designer.

With such beautiful design and photography… it was a real treat.
