What we do

We design and produce beautiful, handmade, and often bespoke, wallcoverings that explore what imagination can bring to the walls around us. With our distinctly British style, we nudge historical classicism and 18th century Chinoiserie into the 21st century, alongside pioneering new techniques for more contemporary designs. We are inquisitive, playful and, above all, we believe that walls are surfaces for limitless decoration and self expression.

Who we are

We are Tim Butcher and Lizzie Deshayes, supported by an incredible team of designers, artists and craftsmen between the UK and China. We launched Fromental in 2005, intent on making the world’s most exquisite wallpapers, fabrics and accessories. We have become known for our elaborate and hand-embroidered designs, with artists spending up to 600 hours painting and stitching individual panels.

Our pursuit of better never stops. We are always looking for alternative materials and techniques to produce our pioneering wallcoverings, and inspired patterns to adorn them with.

How we work

We offer a collaborative, bespoke design service, bringing every wall to life in its own way. Each design starts in the studio and is hand drawn before moving into production.

Every project has its own character and its own distinct appeal, whatever the space, and everything we make comes from a deep understanding of historical decorative art. Our mission is to extend those traditions.

We are a design-led company, proud to have wallcoverings  adorning some of the most prestigious commercial and residential properties across the globe and in museum collections.
