Surface pattern designer based in London who specialises in bespoke design projects and commissions for interior surfaces.
Sophia Frances is a London based surface pattern designer who designs bold and colourful pattern collections for interior textiles, wallpapers and accessories for the home, as well as bespoke projects for commercial spaces.
After studying surface pattern design at UAL and with experience in retail and fashion buying Sophia set up her design studio to pursue her love of print design. After studying the traditional printing processes at university it gave her a real appreciation for British craft and hand printing, Sophia likes to show her hand in her work as much as possible, every design has a story and a hand made element to it.
Sophia’s bohemian, romantic and whimsical style takes inspiration from design movements from the past, particularly the glamour of the Art Deco era, the rock and roll icons of the 1970s and the craftsmanship of the Arts and Crafts movement. Sophia designs with her home and her distinctively ethereal glamorous style in mind.
Her bold designs are always created initially by hand using watercolours, inks and various printing processes to capture her signature textural style, these are then transferred to digital programmes to be put into a repeat pattern and printed in the UK. All fabrics are digitally printed this allows for the widest range of colours to be used.
Fabrics are printed onto high quality luxurious velvets and heavy satins. All methods of sustainable printing are taken wherever possible.
Her signature style is bold, confident and playful with a bohemian edge. Created for customers who are looking for something different.
Sophia works on a freelance basis collaborating with companies to produce print and patterns for a variety of products.
My designs are available for direct sale and licensing.
I can also be contacted for commissioned or collaboration projects.
