About

Hello.  We are a London-based design studio re-imagining the archive of legendary designer Florence Broadhurst for the modern interior.


Florence Broadhurst was an extraordinary person and an extraordinary designer.   Charismatic, flamboyant, fearless and eccentric, she lived a colourful life of self reinvention, travelling the world and changing her name, her appearance and even her voice to take on a variety of different personas.  The 1920s took her to the Far East as the showgirl 'Bobby Broadhurst' before she became a Bond Street based 'French' couturier, 'Madame Pellier', in 1930s London.  Through the 1960s and 70s, back in her native Australia, she created over 500 incredible wallpaper and textile designs which were highly sought after all over the globe, including by the likes of Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Tragically, her prolific period of design came to an abrupt end in 1977 when she was murdered in her design studio in Sydney. 


But Florence's legacy lives on.  Our imaginative and modern interpretation of her designs brings new life to her incredible archive.  The patterns are truly authentic, being derived from scans of Florence's original silk screens.  Florence loved to layer pattern and, taking her lead, our ranges are curated imaginatively to enable creative layering of designs and colourways - many of our products have complementary 'companions' that can be used together in the same space to stunning effect. 


With the resurgence of colour and pattern in the interiors world, and an increasing desire for authentic, heritage products, we believe that Florence's designs are as relevant today as they were when she crafted them. Our collections are curated to be as diverse and eclectic as the archive is.  We aim always to be true to Florence and to capture her love of pattern and colour.  We are honoured to be following in her footsteps. 


We'd love to tell you more, so do get in touch if you would like to know more about Florence's fascinating story or about our collections.
