New to Design Centre East, Sonya Brown Textiles grew out of founder Sonya Ryman’s Hampstead curtain and blind shop. Ryman began to devise her own collections in 2018, responding to the taste of her clients and filling in the gaps where she couldn’t find the right product. Setting up a dedicated textile showroom was the logical next step, where her own collection is augmented by a selection of other brands, including Italian-made fabrics by Ciesse and precision-made blind and curtain components by German company Buchheister. About 40 percent of the stock is sheers and semi-sheers, some incorporating techniques such as laser-cutting and appliqué, and complementary trimmings are also on show.
The showroom should prove a boon to anyone looking to specify textiles specifically for curtain use. All fabrics are wide-width (3m plus), which translates to seam-free window treatments.
