Presenting Showroom: Hines & Co
Featured in the latest issue of Veranda magazine, Richard will talk briefly about the history of the house and how he has used it as a “design lab” as he creates his high-end fabric line. Determined that the decoration shouldn’t be a historical recreation, it is filled with color and layered pattern with the odd unexpected twist to make a welcoming and stylish haven.
With thirty years’ experience designing fabrics and wallpapers for the world’s most renowned editors, Richard Smith has created his own luxurious collection – Madeaux. Working in his studio overlooking the English Channel in East Sussex, Richard creates beguiling and covetable printed, embroidered and woven fabrics. Each fabric has its origin in artwork hand-painted by Richard and influenced by historic textiles, the Sussex landscape and the classic English home. Many are created by hand and the collection has a unique quality, combining refined luxury and understated chic.
