Cole & Son was founded in 1875 by John Perry, son of a Cambridgeshire merchant. In those days the company was situated in Islington, north London, an area famous for the 190 hand block printing companies working there in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Cole & Son continues to produce innovative and beautiful designs; our current collections reflect its long and distinguished history as well as its continuing passion for new and exciting wallpapers.
