Sir John Soane

Developed under licence from Sir John Soane’s Museum, this collection is inspired
 by the individual style of Sir John Soane, one of the most influential and original of all English architects.

Sir John Soane's Museum

Soane was an avid collector of artefacts and works of art, many of which were obtained on his Grand Tour and displayed in his home, which he left to the country on his death in 1837. The house at Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London, together with buildings like the Bank of England and Dulwich Picture Gallery, is Soane’s legacy; it is one of London’s most popular museums and continues to inspire new generations of designers and architects.

Gainsborough’s craftsmanship and technical weaving expertise allow Soane’s style to reach beyond the unique museum that bears his name. Colour was an extremely important element in the creation of interiors for Soane and was central to the development of this collection, with shades carefully colour-matched to those in the museum. Key colours include Pompeian Red, derived from wall plaster Soane found at Pompeii, Turner Yellow, and Porphyry Brown, coloured to imitate porphyry, a material only rediscovered in Egypt during Soane’s lifetime.

‘Sir John Soane’s Museum’ is the registered trade mark of the Sir John Soane’s Museum.
