Commercial businesses need striking interiors with enduring quality that stand out from the crowd. Enter Cole & Son, the creators of intelligent and artistically designed wallcoverings. With a passion for design, the company’s in-house design studio is dedicated to creating beautiful, detailed and atmospheric designs for distinctive interior environments.

What prompted Cole & Son to start a commercial offering?

Kirstie Carey: With more than a century’s design and printing experience, this next step to expand our business was one that we could not miss, and so we developed a contract collection of some of Cole & Son’s most stylish and popular designs. As a market leader in luxury papers that appear in royal residences, historic buildings and beautiful homes around the world, we wanted to create a collection with our signature range of colour, pattern and scale that was specifically tailored to fit in with a new area of interiors, which enhance a building’s personality and a consumer’s experience in it.

Why do commercial spaces need to be bolder than the average interior?

We believe that beautiful buildings, exceptional interiors and memorable occasions are enhanced by Cole & Son’s designs. In competitive and commercial worlds, such as entertainment, accommodation, fine dining, healthcare or club parties, a beautiful interior makes a venue unique, special and memorable.

In an evolving market, commercial buildings need an engaging and inviting interior design that sets them apart from the competition; one that creates repeat customers, positive word of mouth and enhances the brand’s position. By combining Cole & Son’s unparalleled style and quality with durability and performance, our contract offerings help to transform interior spaces into unique and unforgettable experiences through colour and pattern.

How does Cole & Son’s collection differ from designs that are created by its competitors?

With 150 years of design experience, Cole & Son are an authority in premium wallcoverings – customers will not find metres of dull beige in our collections. We create designs for confident and unique interiors in exciting colour palettes.

Furthermore, we offer quality non-woven wallcoverings, as well as a specially developed vinyl across 140 design variations and a full palette of colours that meets the exact needs of the commercial market, without compromising the integrity or aesthetic of our design.

The collection is also a made-to-order offering, which is designed by Cole & Son’s London-based team, who have compiled 28 different eye-catching and unforgettable designs, ranging from classic to abstract and geometric, floral, conversation-starting and semi-plain wallcoverings. There is something for everyone, whatever space clients are looking to enhance.

Cole & Son has been creating original and exceptional wallcoverings since it was established in 1875 in Islington, London. Our vast archive – which includes original block prints – contains some of the most important historic wallpaper designs in the world. The company strives and continues to produce innovative and beautiful designs, with collections that reflect its long and distinguished history, as well as its ongoing passion for new and exciting wallpapers, including traditional damasks and contemporary geometrics.
