Fromental raises '2,000 for Decorex 2012 charity Maggie's


One of the most talked about, visited and photographed stands at this year's show was the Fromental 'Scholar's Studio'. The company flew its head artist, Master Wang, over from China, to spend his time at the show meticulously painting a beautiful chinoiserie wallpaper panel. The panel (pictured below) featured the delicate illustrations Fromental is known for, created using Master Wang's inimitable 'unconscious' style.

At the end of the show, the stunning panel was auctioned off in aid of Decorex's chosen partner charity, Maggie's, with the winning bid being an impressive £2,000.

'We're really delighted about the £2,000 the auction of the hand-painted panels raised for Maggie's,' says Tim Butcher, creative director for Fromental. 'The event was a great opportunity for us to showcase the skills which go into making our unique papers and it was great to do so for such a good cause.'
