Claire Gaudion designs feature a sophisticated use of colour, pattern and texture. Taking inspiration from the ever-changing seascapes and coastal landscapes of the Channel Islands, our printed and woven textiles depict the islands’ natural rhythms with unique colour combinations and rhythmic geometric and abstract patterns.
Other design influences include abstract expressionist painters, Clifford Still, Barnett Newman and Rothko, Bauhaus designers Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl, and artists and colourists Paul Klee and Sonia Delaunay.
Claire Gaudion textiles are developed and sampled in our rural Hampshire studio, before being produced in specialist mills in the UK. Our Lambswool designs are woven in Wales and Scotland. Our Cashmere and Silk Merino designs are woven in Lancashire, and our fabrics are printed in Manchester, Lancaster and Macclesfield. We are proud to work with the established, and specialist mills and skilled craftspeople manufacturing in the UK.
Our printed fabric designs can be printed on a range of base fabrics to suit residential upholstery and soft furnishings, or the special requirements of the contract sector. Claire Gaudion are proud supply interior designers, architects, specifiers with our collections, and bespoke commissions. We also have an archive of patterns available on request.
Claire Gaudion’s projects and collaborations include midcentury-style furniture with Galapagos Designs, resin mosaics and wall coverings by Gemanco Designs, plus homeware ranges featuring the paintings of international artists.
