Dungeness Wallpaper?

Yes you can get Dungeness wallpaper and other quaint and quirky items from a company called Mini Moderns, based in London.

Although operating from the metropolis the two owners of the company, Keith  Stephenson  and  Mark Hampshire   have a home in Dungeness.   It is their shack (sorry bespoke railway carriage) that featured in the Channel 4 (More4) television series 'Homes by the Sea' recently.

Visit their website www.minimoderns.com'  for  an  extensive range  of  ethnically produced  home furnishings.

Their  'Home Page'  reads thus:-      Launched in 2006 by   designers,  Keith Stephenson and  Mark Hampshire,  Mini Moderns  is an  interiors brand  specialising  in applied  pattern across  a range  of products  including wallpapers,  fabrics, cushions,  rugs and ceramics.  The initial  collection was  snapped up  by Heal's  and our  brand continues  to go  from strength   to strength,  selling online  and via  selected    around the  world.

Our  design influences  range from  mid-century British  textiles to  vintage  toys,  from literature  to childhood  memories.   Travel  also influences  our work   and much  of our inspiration  comes from  holidays and  field trips,  both at  home   and abroad.

MADE IN THE UK BY NICE PEOPLE. At Mini Moderns we like to produce in the UK whenever possible. All our wallpapers, fabrics, cushions, tea towels and bags are made in the UK by people with whom we've developed long-standing relationships. Producing in the UK also helps to keep our carbon footprint down, by minimising the number of journeys a product makes before it gets to you.

Mini Moderns also works on a number of commissions, including recent collaborations with the Courtauld Gallery, Southbank Centre and the London Transport Museum Shop.

And if you do make enquiries to those 'Nice People' do mention you read about them on this website.   You never know they may make a donation!
