Continuing the trend to look to historical periods for inspiration, Lilo Hörstadius has used the 18th century as his source for this design. It is from a range called ‘The Wedding Collection’, in which the textiles portray different scenes from the progress of a marriage. ‘And all the Angels Sing’ represents the blissful happiness of the wedding day. There is a fabric entitled ‘The Old Furniture Shop’ in which the couple furnish their home, and inevitably, one called ‘Domestic Problems’ humourously illustrated with a pattern of flying crockery.
