Colefax & Fowler - The Best In English Interior Decoration by Chester Jones
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Chintz in glorious faded colours, curtains meticulously swagged, fringed and tasselled, the most comfortable upholstery and expertly applied paint finishes, all set in timeless interiors and discreetly lit to show off beautiful antiques and paintings. These are the hallmarks of the style developed by Colefax & Fowler in the post-war years and currently more fashionable then ever. This informative and fascinatingly anecdotal book tells the story of the firm's founder, John Fowler, and shows his style evolving through his association with Sybil Colefax and Nancy Lancaster and later through his work restoring National Trust houses. It describes the expert craftmanship and technical skills which produce the ageless Colefax & Fowler look, and shows examples of their current work in different types of rooms in a wide variety of locations, ranging from Badminton and Sudeley Castle, large and small country houses, to flats and mews houses in London and abroad.
