Winter is upon us, which means the season of good will fast approaches. There is a cold snap in the air, and mornings are covered in a blanket of frost. Our living rooms, bed chambers, and snugs have become ever more in need of warmth, comfort, and allure.
The aim of the ‘Bursary+X’ scheme was to support a Student of Colour through a year-long programme of mentoring, designing and realising a number of designs. Blackpop would then print these designs onto their trade mark velvet and have cushions made up.
“The programme has been really beneficial for my development as a textile designer and I have learnt many new skills,” Jessica told me yesterday. “This is the first time I’ve had my designs made into a product. When I first saw them, I could have cried – happy tears.”
We are thrilled to announce the exciting news that we have collaborated with Alice from BeauVamp who has created the most exquisite and decadent hand stitched lampshades using our silk fabrics. This specially curated collection of lampshades features five of Blackpop’s unique silk designs - 'Vanguard', 'Vanguard Vibe, 'Chapelle Morpho', 'Birdland' and 'Dizzy'. Luxuriously decadent, these lampshades are hand-pleated and stitched and are complemented by locally-sourced hand-dipped trimming. We are rather taken with the wavy-cut fringing, but straight-cut is an option too. Elegant, Tiffany, vintage styled, silk hand stitched lampshades. Lighting up any room with style, colour, pattern and sheer decadence!
Let's go outside with Blackpop’s latest collection: The Damned Damask Lockdown is gradually easing, spring is in full-flight and here at Blackpop, we are launching our latest collection, The Damned Damask. Available as a wallpaper and across the range of fabrics. And what better way to celebrate our new freedoms, meeting family and friends and sharing a bottle of fizz, than by taking our furniture outside, in line with the official guidelines, of course!? Pre-loved wing back chairs reupholstered in 'Moulin' and 'Orpheus' Damask style velvet in a more traditional setting! You may be wondering why The Damned Damask, Maxine took inspiration...

New Year, Stunning New Projects... Here at Blackpop we love a bespoke brief! Based in the Derbyshire town of Wirksworth, the Blackpop team are small but perfectly formed, and ready to help you on your interiors journey. We love working with our clients to ensure that they achieve their perfect visions. The image shown is a bespoke version of our Chapelle Sunrise wallpaper that we were commissioned to make towards the end of 2020. We changed the colour pallette, added a flurry of butterflies and a bright orange ombré shining up from the ground. This wallpaper is a great example...
