The world has always benefitted from trade and the exchange of ideas, from the earliest silk routes between northern Africa, the Mediterranean, through Asia and India to China.

Take a carpet from Anatolia, an embroidered crewel work from Kashmir, a suzani from Uzbekistan, a chintz from the Coromandel coast, a dhurrie from Rajasthan, a welsh blanket or a Peruvian one, a toile de Jouy from France and we have a home filled entirely with globally inspired textiles. This is the much vaunted but often ill-executed English Country House style at its best – a celebration of travel and trade, culture and ethnicity in casually collected, non-forced eclectic comfort.
