Records of Stoddard International plc, Design Archive, Floral with Trellis

Scope and Content

A mixture of design sketches and patterns from across the 20th century all featuring floral and trellis designs. The carpet ranges represented are quite varied from Crown & Imperial to Sorrento & Jorian. A couple of the patterns were designed by David Yarrington in the 1980s and carry his stamp, and one is for a specific contract - the Westin Hotel in Washington, USA. Many designs in this drawer feature pattern numbers in the form of 2 or 3 letters (eg. 'LEC' or similar), and as such, can potentially be cross-referenced with two design studio record books titled 'Letter Books' (Catalogue reference: STOD/201/8/5/1-2), often revealing further information such as dates and designers.

This description is part of the  Design Archive  which is divided into the 142 sections, each with its own separate description.
