Awning graphics used to just be simple text, usually black on to a cream cover. Not so today, all manner and shade of fabrics is available and customers are no longer satisfied with plain old text awning graphics. At Deans we are able to supply short runs of special colour fabric and also special designs, such as this pink and white stripe shown at Peggy Porschen of Belgravia. With the advent of digital application on to awning fabrics we no longer have to use heavy paint layers which means that dust build up and subsequent dust laden runs on lettering is significantly reduced. These traditional Deans shop blinds have been recently installed and they feature the special client awning graphics with awning boxes painted in an icing sugar pink colour to match the shop front.

Belgravia was originally known as Five Fields founded in the Middle Ages, and was a precarious route for travellers due to the many highwaymen and footpads. In the early 19th century it was developed by Richard Grosvenor, 2nd Marquess of Westminster under the direction of Thomas Cubitt Much of Belgravia, known as the Grosvenor Estate, is still owned by a family property company, the Duke of Westminster’s Grosvenor Group though, in recent years much of the freehold has been sold to tenants.
