Welcome to The Art Of Design
  • Classic, colourful, handmade and handpicked fabrics and homeware

    Our Style

    The Mews Fabrics & Furnishings specialises in unique textiles and furnishings from around the world. We work with local artisans in India, Spain and Mallorca to create beautiful and individual pieces. We also sell fabric printed in the UK, designed and created by a well-known watercolour artist and have recently launched our own exclusive collection of fabrics, called The Home Collection.

    Our People and Products

    Annabel Haan is the creative director and owner of The Mews. She has always been fascinated by buildings and homes and, following an 18-year career as a Director in a multi-national property company, decided to pursue her passion for the design of the interior elements of our homes.

    Annabel sources and creates unique homeware and fabric from the UK and around the world, working closely with small artisan companies that produce original and beautiful pieces.  The Mews Fabrics and Furnishings are based in SE Scotland, in beautiful countryside and Annabel is assisted by a small and invaluable team.

    The Home Collection is a first foray into fabric designing for Annabel.  A life-long passion for antiques and antique textiles has seen her collect pieces for years, be it a vintage Swedish rug, a woodblock used for making Georgian plaster-casts, or a scrap of fabric from a stylish great-grandparent.  These have been cleverly reimagined to create this first collection.  The influences are pieces Annabel has loved for years, transposed and reproduced for the home.

    The collection features small scale and large scale prints and colours that work both together and separately.  The designs are printed in the UK on a 50/50 linen/cotton mix and are suitable for curtains, blinds, cushions and light upholstery.

    Our Pardis Fabric Collection is designed by renowned watercolourist Felicity Buchanan and is printed to order in the UK.  The word Pardis (where you pronounce the ‘s’) is a noun that means paradise in Persian and the collection is inspired by the opulence of the East; the it is a series of hand-painted watercolour designs and motifs from the Ottoman and Moghul worlds translated onto fabric.

    Having fabric printed to order means there is very little wastage and we only print what is required; the high-tech digital printing process means there is no requirement for liquid dyes which are harmful to the environment.

    We can make bespoke cushions in any of our fabrics; our Mallorcan fabrics have a beautiful texture and their unique and traditional ikats and stripes are perfect for eye-catching and original cushions.

    We source our Mallorcan fabric from three traditional mills in Mallorca, working closely with one in particular, Bujosa, which is a family-run mill that is over 120 years old. We recently collaborated with well-known Spanish stylist and blogger Gloria Gonzalez and created three beautiful and exclusive cushions in fabrics by Bujosa; one of the fabrics, for the Soller cushion, was created by Bujosa exclusively for this collaboration.

    We are lucky enough to work with a wonderful artisan family in southern Spain who create our iconic Spanish Ceramics. Not only do the ceramics complement any table setting, but they also look fabulous as wall art, hung on a wall as a colourful decorative piece.

    Our block print table linen and quilts are created exclusively for us by a wonderful group of block printers in India. Some of the patterns we get them to print are traditional Indian Chinoiserie in design and others are designs we’ve created and they’ve turned into a perfect block to print, for example, our new Nellie tablecloths, where the design was inspired by an antique plaster mould used for ceiling cornices.

    We hope you enjoy our collection as much as we enjoy sourcing and collating it!
