The Avenues by James Dunlop

The Avenues collection by James Dunlop is a contemporary interpretation of the classic aesthetic of our favourite inner city suburbs.

Inner city suburbs within Australasia have a unique feeling and innate emotion expressed through the space and place they own in our landscapes and minds. Small yet perfectly formed, this collection strongly references inner city lifestyles where homewares and furnishings are cherished, handed from generation to generation, revered for not only what they mean to the past, but what they can bring to the future. 

The Avenues collection explores the timeless design of the colonial era and reinterprets this theme for contemporary homes. Hounds tooth, luxury linen, jacquard and woven yarns are not new but they are classic, enduring, resilient fabrics which are now reinterpreted to be beautiful to the eye and gracious to the touch. Contemporary interiors may be more open plan but the importance of quality and timeless design remains. 

A collection of enduring fabrics with inherent quality, The Avenues rediscovers the authenticity of classic design within the currency of modern trends.


The quintessential hounds tooth weave has endured centuries of use and reinvention. This classic duotone textured pattern can be found in fashion, accessories and homewares, and Heritage remains true to the classic pattern while adding a sharp contemporary edge to the colour palette. Shades of neutrals, navy, green and black complete the design range.


Drawing from classic colonial textiles, Sloane represents the simple luxury of a 100% linen fabric. An enduring emblem design inspired by the Batik technique ensures the design nestles into the weave, giving Sloane a timeless quality.



Notting Hill is a beautifully balanced jacquard design. Elements of this timeless classic are subtly interlaced with contemporary styling. A refined colour palette of harmonious tones delivers this design to perfection.


Finely textured and airy, Mira is created with three layers of woven yarn. The design is delicately coloured in soft greys, whites and neutral tones, with a simple colonial lineal design balancing colour and construction.


Strings of pearls passed down through the generations is the inspiration behind this design. A contemporary weave, creating movement and calmness in a yarn dyed, semi -sheer construction. Coloured to link across The Avenues collection, Perla effortlessly complements the collection of designs.


Latimer is a contemporary, stylised jacquard design. A refined colour palette of harmonious tones delivers this design to perfection.
