Juliet Thornback and Delia Peel met in 2003. While retaining their day jobs as a florist (Thornback) and theatre designer (Peel), they embarked upon their first collaboration, a series of handprinted clutch bags. They set up a studio in 2006 at Cockpit Arts, London.

A year later they established Thornback & Peel to create beautiful, intricate screen-printed pieces for the home  They soon emerged with their signature style. Borrowing imagery that plays on artistic traditions, they combined modernist geometric patterns with 19th-century wood engravings. Their work is inspired by an eclectic mixture of Victoriana, Mrs Beeton’s household management, Mr McGregor’s garden, 17th-century microscope imagery of the natural world, Norfolk and Devon. Thornback & Peel is a celebration of the quirkiness of British humour and design.
