Chances are you’ve seen the work of Florence Broadhurst without even realising it. Since 1959, her divine wallpaper & fabric pattern designs have been splashed world-wide, from hotels to handbags, curtains to carpets and cushions, rugs and wallpaper.
Her patterns are self described as “vigorous designs for modern living” signified by large, bold, contrasting-coloured prints, inspired by elements of nature such as birds, horses, art deco geometrics, flowing foliage and floral motifs.
Florence led a flamboyant life not only as a designer, but as a globetrotting performer. Hailing originally from Queensland, Australia, she traveled as a singer, comedian, painter, businesswoman and designer everywhere from China, India, Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, England and America.
