Part of The Romo Group, Kirkby Design was launched in September 2009, as a modern, high performance fabric resource library, compiled of collections with a sharp, contemporary feel coloured with a well balanced, sophisticated palette. With a fresh modern approach to upholstery fabrics Kirkby Design fulfils a requirement for a reliable, affordable and practical fabric resource which provides the essential basics for interior designers, retailers, furniture manufacturers and upholsterers to use in both residential and contract specifications.
A defining characteristic of Kirkby Design is the unique colour palette, which is made up of an extensive range of practical neutrals such as, Porcini, Bark, Jute and Twine, interspersed with fashionable shades including Orange, Eden, Magenta and Cobalt.
Meticulous care and attention has also been given to specific fabric treatments to ensure many of the fabrics meet Crib 5 contract standard, and to specialist finishing techniques to improve the handle on severe domestic and contract fabrics, ensuring the high durability does not compromise on the natural look and feel of the collections.
Established in 1902, Romo is a family run business, based in Nottinghamshire, UK. The company designs and markets exclusive furnishing and upholstery fabrics, wallcoverings and trimmings for residential and contract interiors. There are currently six design houses operating under The Romo Group: Romo, Mark Alexander, Zinc Textile, Villa Nova, Kirkby Design and Black Edition, each with its own signature style and colour palette. Design creativity and the highest level of product and service are central to the ethos of the company. For more information about the group please visit the Romo website www.romo.com
