5 October 2018 by Editor in Home, Interiors & Auto, Textile Insights
This fascinating video highlights the chance discoveries that led to the weaving of ‘His Majesty’s Geranium and Gold Colour Silk’ for the restoration of the Saloon at Brighton’s Royal Pavilion. Restored to its stunning 1823 scheme of regal splendour, the saloon is again open to the public and celebrates the skill and artistry of today’s craftsmen and women who recreated the dazzling silver, gold and crimson decoration that George IV originally commissioned to reflect his status as King.
