Founded as a collaborative venture between two sisters, Vanessa Cooper (Creative Director) and Sarah Royle-Johnson (Commercial Director). VCD was established to work in close collaboration with Architects and Interior Designers to create exclusive bespoke interiors.
LUXURY BRITISH MADE FABRICS
We use elements from Vanessa Coopers’ original paintings to create luxurious velvets and linens. The designs burst with joie de vivre that echoes the joy, abundance, inspiration, and harmony of nature that Vanessa vibrantly expresses.
The fabrics and all designed and manufactured in England, to the highest standards.
We believe that they are ideally placed to meet the needs of the ever-changing, ever demanding luxury custom home and hospitality markets place. We have the ability to work in exclusive partnership/creative collaboration with Interior architects and designers to create distinctive, innovative, intriguing, sophisticated, elegant designs on luxury furnishings and tailored bespoke furniture.
Vanessa is an established successful artist who has built a reputation as a bold, expressive and imaginative painter, with a deep love and knowledge of colour. Vanessa believes that colour is a language with its own psychology and vibrations. When looking for inspiration she observes the shades nature puts together, and finds colour very healing and energising.
She saw an opportunity to transfer her designs onto a larger stage and to share them with a greater audience therefore establishing VCD as a platform. She feels that people are increasingly eclectic in how they decorate their homes, are seeking ‘art in every object’ and that her vibrant, yet informed style fits the spirit of the age.
Vanessa exhibits in several galleries in the UK with regular solo exhibitions and has established a following of customers that collect her paintings. She receives commissions all over the world and has featured in several publications.
