Introducing Chestnut Hill Fabrics & wallpaper by Thibaut Design

Chestnut Hill is a new collection of classic sophisticated wallpaper, embroidery, print and woven fabrics from Thibaut Design. The soft and traditional color palette feature warm neutrals and hues of peacock blues, graceful grays and soft soothing colors.


















The Collection features royal toiles, block print inspired patterns and beautiful European inspired leafy garden patterns. Great rooms start with great fabrics.

Taken from an antique document, Royale Toile’s novelty scenes depict 17th century royalty at leisure with their dogs and music. The fabric is printed in Thailand on a soft linen/cotton/modal blend.

Royal Toile









Benedetto is an interlocking chain pattern that is geometric with a traditional aesthetic. The wallpaper is printed on a very subtly textured ground. The embroidery was woven in Italy. This is a great patter for accessories such as Decorative Pillows. (Shown below)








Aldith is an antique block print of a French Provincial flower motif in an openly spaced layout. Allaire is a silhouette of a French-looking paisley-shape featuring birds and greenery. Large-scale Chardonnet Damask wallpaper is printed on non-woven Type II vinyl. The matching printed fabric comes in all colorways except Cream.

Aldith  & Benedetto

Aldith Wallpaper








Macbeth is a large-scale Jacobean pattern with stylized flowers, leaves and branches. The fabric is printed on 100% linen and matches all colorways of the wallpaper.

This handsome pattern was named after a famous mid-evil knight, Sir Thomas. The embroidery is on 100% linen.



Luscious florals bloom in the alluring pottery in Tullamore, named after the country town in the mid-lands of Ireland.





Corneila is a primitive pattern influenced by the look of Moroccan tile patterns. The fabric is handprinted in India.




Laos (pronunced “lao” – rhymes with cow) is a hand-drawn geometric taken from an antiquedocument. Named after the country in southeast Asia known for mountainous terrain.


The exotic artwork of Turkish Damask was taken from an antique document and printed on top of paperweave. The motif can lean coastal or old-fashioned in style.

A raised, textural herringbone. Ideal for use as a background wallcovering. Roscoe Herringbone has been colored to coordinate with other patterns in the collection.

Pompton Trellis is an open trellis with an ikat-effect and a delicate, linen texture in the ground.

Incredibly soft and touchable, Beacroft Matelassé was made with a finely combed cotton. The shapes are reminiscent of a hexagonal honeycomb built by bees.

Claremont Trellis is a 100% linen sheer with tiny, decorative eyelets that make an allover diamond pattern. This can translate into wonderful window treatments

Claremont Trellis









The historical architecture of New England makes this collection perfect for a variety of design styles. Chestnut Hill is a village in the Boston area. The historical homes are perfect for this collection!
