Our diverse collections within the James Dunlop Textiles catalogue each have their own unique character and style.
An eclectic collection of luxury textiles, trimmings and wallpapers, Majorelle is inspired by Catherine Martin’s recent foray into tropical flora and fauna whilst taking design influence from Orientalism and exotic faraway lands.
The collection references Jardin Majorelle, Yves Saint Laurent’s enchanting retreat designed by living legend Jacques Grange in Marrakesh, famed for its sophisticated and exotic interior design, brilliant blue exterior and magnificent gardens. The collection also pays homage to Catherine’s French heritage and love affair with French culture, design and interior architecture.
“Celebrating my love of mixing discordant textures and patterns, into extravagantly contrasting but nevertheless visually enticing combinations, I seek, in this collection, to find a style where being baroque is elegant and modern. Marrying animal print and embellished tropical designs and an exuberantly luxurious palette of fabrics, this is a collection that is meant to be both glamorous and playful.”
- Catherine Martin
‘Taking tea’ is not only a lifestyle, it is a sacred ritual observed all over the world. It ignores political divisions and broaches cultural boundaries; taking tea is the international language of ‘welcome to my home’. In Australia and New Zealand hosting visitors for tea in the front room harks from a colonial era that our inner city suburbs were built upon. This ritual continues in various forms throughout our diverse landscapes and is an inescapable part of the fabric of our lives.
The Tea House collection focuses on the intimate nature of ‘taking tea’. Large floral prints feature strong patterns and bold colours of tropical fauna, fresh herbs, cherry blossoms, and bird life, which sit alongside a sumptuous velvet making for a luxurious fabric collection.

Contemporary interiors may be more open plan but the importance of quality and timeless design remains.

The Alpine collection explores reconnection to nature and embraces inspiration drawn directly from the great outdoors. Volcanic landforms, domes, cones and lava create a vivid and dynamic landscape, influencing the surface designs of the collection. At a macro level, the alpine herb garden, a diversity of plants with delicate forms and rich colours inspired both pattern and scale in Alpine.
Tongariro is constantly scarred, scorched and beaten by the rapid weather moods of the region and this constant re-shaping of its landscape provides a wondrous colour palette to draw from. Let us take you on a journey of discovery, from the mountainous beech forests to the harsh volcanic landforms and rocky terrain, with a stunning selection of warming upholsteries, stormy draperies and small-scale designs.

Just the right amount; the essentials: Lagom. This single word encapsulates the essence of the Swedish way of life and the basis of their national psyche, ‘enough, sufficient, moderation, balance.’
With the Essentials collection by James Dunlop, this philosophy has been the seed of inspiration to produce a comprehensive collection that emanates simplicity and raw beauty.
Together, the six designs incorporate a little bit of everything; pattern and plain, weave and print, but all in moderation with something for everyone. The colour palette across this collection also reflects Lagom; primarily neutral with complimentary seasonal colours and a feature tourmaline blue.
The Essentials collection provides a well-balanced and fundamental offering of drapery and upholstery product; not too little, not too much, just right.
