Years ahead of her time, Florence Broadhurst created hundreds of beautiful screen printed wallpapers and textiles, exclusively by hand. These were unique and luxurious patterns with rich and vibrant colours, perfectly reflecting Florence’s flamboyant personality and style.
Born in rural Australia in 1899, Florence lived a life of mystery, eccentricity and fame! She performed professionally on the stages in Asia and India in the early 1920’s, reinvented herself in England during the 1930’s and started her internationally successful wallpaper company in 1959 in Australia. By the mid 1960’s her company monopolised the Australian Market and began to export around the world. Her adventurous life stories are still as entrancing as her designs are, all these decades on.
Bridging the gap between style and practicality, Materialised deliver Florence Broadhurst designs to the contract market. Printing iconic designs on high performance base fabrics, ensure they are suited to the hospitality and health care industries; fabrics with flame retardancy, high abrasion, water resistance, colour stability and launderability properties.
The Florence Broadhurst collection consists of new designs to the Materialised print range, some iconic and some not as widely recognised. Materialised have adapted the colours to complement today’s trends, while keeping true to the colours Florence used herself. Essentially a beautiful collection of prints perfect for any project.
