Patterns: Inside the Design Library

By Peter Koepke


An insider’s guide to the Design Library, the world’s largest archive of patterns and textiles, and the source of inspiration for top designers. Owner and director Peter Koepke takes you on a personal tour of the Library, which has over seven million designs and continues to grow.

The Design Library is the professional source for surface design, with clients from the fashion, home and paper-product industries. This one-of-a-kind book, drawn from the archive, is the ultimate, and exclusive, sourcebook of pattern and ornament.

This visually beautiful book, wonderfully designed, is full of illustrations of patterns, categorised according to the Library's system. In three sections: images of the Library itself; A–Z of patterns; glimpse into 10 iconic brands – Beacon Hill, Boden, Calvin Klein, Clinique, Colefax & Fowler, Lululemon, Nike, Oscar de la Renta, Pottery Barn and Target.
