Warner House
A historic textiles house, creatively reimagining designs for the 21st century

The Warner House mission is simple: to provide exquisite home furnishings for the luxury interiors market while preserving the charm and rich heritage of the historic brand. Founded in 1870, Warner rapidly became one of the greatest names in British textiles and, just 30 years later, was considered the foremost furnishing silk weaver in Britain. A royal warrant holder (the firm has woven articles for every single coronation since 1902) and supplier of exceptional furnishing fabrics to institutions ranging from the Palace of Westminster to the White House, as well as interior designers such as Nancy Lancaster and John Fowler, it has a longstanding history of collaborating with contemporary designers.

 

In more recent years, frequent changes of ownership saw the name eclipsed. That is, until husband and wife team, Lee and Emma Clarke (founders of innovative textile house Clarke & Clarke) became enthralled by the achievements of the prestigious brand and saw an opportunity to bring its design excellence to the 21st-century consumer. Warner was acquired in 2020 and reborn as Warner House. Now an exclusively online company, it encompasses brilliantly conceived ranges of woven and printed fabrics, wallpapers, paints, furniture, and home accessories. The brand has also launched a tailored collection of outdoor fabrics and cushions, featuring beloved Warner prints.

 

Drawing inspiration from Warner’s extraordinary heritage, the duo have distilled its essence into a contemporary lifestyle collection. Iconic patterns are skilfully recoloured and reimagined for modern living but always presented with the narrative of the original design to honour its story. The revived range showcases a myriad of beautiful designs including exotic botanicals, damask, animal print, ikats, historical toiles and more whimsical pieces.

Warner House is looking to the future with every element of the business carefully considered for its environmental impact

However, it is the quintessential English chintz that is most associated with the brand and very much forms a major part of Warner House today. In addition, this autumn the company is releasing a new collection of over 60 archival designs. Complementary to the current offering, the latest fabrics and wallpapers feature an array of large and small-scale designs, in both bold and muted palettes, to fit seamlessly into a range of interior styles.

 

Unashamedly decorative and luxurious, the Warner House concept is cleverly put together to provide both standalone elements and coordinated collections. This approach makes it easy to create lush, layered interiors that celebrate creativity through pattern, colour and texture. Pulling together a cohesive space is made simpler still through the moodboard offering of 40 tailored schemes that allow consumers to see how different prints and complementary hues can sit together in perfect harmony.

Warner House offers the flexibility for clients to create personal statement pieces, from bespoke curtains and blinds to hand crafted furniture in a vast choice of fabrics and trimmings. Highly interactive, the website perfectly showcases the outstanding quality of Warner’s products and offers a user-friendly way for people to experience an exceptional interior design service.

While this heritage brand is undoubtedly built on history, Warner House is looking to the future with every element of the business carefully considered for its environmental impact. Materials chosen are of the highest quality and sustainably sourced, and the range is produced predominantly in the UK by skilled craftsmen, ensuring the utmost attention to detail and a beautiful end product that is made to last.
