Interior design trends: summer strawberries are most definitely in season

Summer strawberries are having an interiors moment. Here's our pick of the best strawberry-themed furnishings for the home... 

Not content to be just the luscious fruit of Wimbledon, strawberries are a segment of our design heritage, too.

Sanderson and Wedgwood have both revived much-loved patterns from the Sixties on cotton prints, wallpapers, teapots and Pimm's glasses; while Cole's have re-issued a strawberry woodblock print from their archives.

Perhaps most famous of all is the Strawberry Thief print, produced in 1883 by the leading light of the Arts & Crafts movement William Morris, who they say saw thrushes stealing strawberries in his countryside home of Kelmscott in Oxfordshire.

Today Strawberry Thief comes as printed cotton in four colourways, and as wallpaper also in four colours. Visit www.william-morris.co.uk.

Created in 1964, the Wild Strawberry motif has long been a best-seller for Wedgwood, hand-decorated with delicately-drawn flowers and leaves. Now there are extra pieces in materials such as glass, and in stainless steel with a glamorous coating of gold. Visit www.wedgwood.co.uk.

And in the kitchen this summer, there’s a simple way to hull your strawberries without staining your fingers. The “stem gem” removes stalks with a click of its stainless steel “claw”. Visit www.debenhams.co.uk.

Take a tour of our pick of the best strawberry-themed patterns, prints and gadgets for interiors...
