Emily Bond textile collection

Don't go to English textile & interior designer Emily Bond's website looking for pretty florals or Regency stripes: the British countryside is very much at the centre of her inspiration and features designs with fabulous repeating dog prints (amongst which are dachshund, labrador & Jack Russell terriers), horse motifs and hunting scenes.

Just imagine how lovely a chair could be upholstered in her dachshund fabric (inspired by Ms Bond's own wire-haired dachsies, Oscar & George).

Emily Bond doesn't just produce fabric, (using linen from Kirkcaldy in Scotland), there is wallpaper too:

And, for those who aren't sure they could live with an entirely canine or horse themed room, Emily Bond has turned her lovely fabric into homewares too. There are cushions, tea cosies, oven mitts and tea towels, as well as dog beds

and rather chic leather dog collars with brass bone & star motifs.
