Ian Mankin Arran fabric in the dark grey colourway is perfect for this gorgeous little study.  Ian Mankin linens never fail to deliver…. and the Arran fabric has this subtle ‘sheen’, which is both difficult to describe and also difficult to capture in a photograph – the linen just shouts quality. The double pleat heading is deep at 20cm but we think it works well with the double pleat heading which is is ‘half open’.   That is the beauty of a hand sewn heading – you can achieve whatever look you want.  In this situation we wanted our client wanted a nod to the current contemporary trend, whilst still being traditional.  The house is one of the Sevenoaks heritage houses and the owners wanted to retain this overall feel.  To that end the curtain pole is Jim Lawrence, in the mercury colourway. The sofa has been upholstered in the Sanderson Bryndle Check in the Mulberry/ Fig colourway.
