Sample Service

All our standard sized samples are FREE OF CHARGE* and are sent our direct from the supplier.

We always recommend that you order a few samples when choosing fabrics and wallpapers. We do our best to ensure images on the site are of a high quality, but for seeing the colour and feeling the texture of a fabric there is no substitute for a swatch.

We also offer samples for linings and trimmings, and metal/wooden samples are available for our range of poles.

It’s simple to order a sample. Just make a note of the item you want to see and email it to us at

We’ll get samples sent out to you as quickly as we can, they’ll typically arrive in 3-5 working days in the United Kingdom (5-8 working days everywhere else).

Samples vary in size depending on the brand, but our standard wallpaper samples are typically A4 and fabric samples A6. We also offer large returnable samples for patterned fabrics and wallpapers etc but these may be subject to a small charge which is refunded once the samples are returned to us. Please send your requirements to

Returnable samples are available for patterned fabrics and wallpapers and are generally large enough to see the whole pattern. We recommend upgrading to this sample for fabrics with larger pattern repeats.

Returnable samples must be returned to us within 14 days, as they need to be sent back to our suppliers. We do charge a deposit of £15 for returnable samples, refunded on return of the sample within the time limit.

In the case that a returnable sample is not sent back to us within the given time, your deposit will not be refunded and in some cases we may need to make a further charge based on the suppliers terms.

*Maximum of 6 samples per request.
