The Archive

The Sanderson design archive houses one of the largest collections of fabrics, wallpaper and printing blocks in the world with samples dating back to the Renaissance.  This resource is a constant inspiration to the design studio, which is always looking at new ways of re-interpreting these design classics to suit modern tastes.
