Circle and crown print
This design originates in the late 1960s and although formed part of the Ashley’s early wallpaper range, it has been used over the years for many different products. In recent years it has been used mainly as a fashion print (you may recognise it from one of our best-selling dresses that was sold this summer).
Believed to date from the 1950s, this is another classic Laura Ashley print. It’s presumed to have been inspired by an illustration in a historical design book. The detailing of animals along with beautiful flower drawings make this wallpaper print a beautiful and classical design.
A classic early Laura Ashley design, the swan print was designed by Brian Jones and was inspired by an illustration in an antique German book. This beautiful outdoor print would make the perfect feature wall — perhaps in a living room, or even a child’s bedroom.
This design originates in the 1970s and graced walls and dresses alike in this time period. We love its ornate detail the most (notice the water flowing through the castle, heart around it and delicate flower detailing). You can see it was painted by hand, with great precision and detail. Laura’s original designs were full of character and life, drawing on inspiration from her everyday life — and they’re still designs that inspire us today.
