Introducing Warner House

In its 150th anniversary year, Warner has been re-imagined.

Recently bought by Lee and Emma Clarke (founders of textile house Clarke & Clarke) the British brand has been reborn as Warner House, an online offering of woven and printed fabrics, wallpapers, paints, furniture and home accessories.

Their inspiration draws on Warner’s extensive archive with patterns re-coloured and re-imagined for modern living, but always presented with the narrative of the original design, honouring its story. Unashamedly decorative, the Warner House concept provides both standalone elements and co-ordinated collections, the majority of which is produced in the UK. Warner House is launching a new website, offering bespoke curtains and blinds to hand crafted furniture in a choice of fabrics and trimmings.

Lee Clarke founded his own fabric house, Clarke & Clarke, in 1999. Which he sold in 2016 to Walker Greenbank, joining an interiors portfolio which also included Sanderson and Zoffany. Lee remained at Clarke & Clarke until January 2020, when he bought the historic British brand Warner from German company Zimmer & Rohde.
