The Kit Kemp for Andrew Martin Collection is a modern range of fabrics and wallpapers with one eye in the past and one in the future, bringing us squarely up to the present. Comprising five wallpaper and six fabric designs in an array of painterly colourways, the collection embodies a lyrical spirit, like an imaginative folk tale that sits happily in both town and country settings.
Kit Kemp wanted to create something exquisite. The creative process began when studying tapestries from 15th and 16th centuries. Fascinated to see the magical creatures hiding behind leaves and under hedgerows, it inspired the idea to give them new life in a contemporary world. With the help of artist Melissa White, this idea has been transformed into reality.
As well as tapestries, Native American art provided inspiration for Apache, while Mythical Land, a monumental three metre repeat mural takes its cue from American Folk Art, first seen at Kit’s Whitby Hotel in New York. It is designed to encourage layering and create a room with the unfolding twists and turns of a story.
Kit Kemp and Martin Waller, Founder of Andrew Martin have shared a strong working relationship, with Kit winning the Andrew Martin Interior Designer of the Year in 2008.
