The vogue of “Papiers peints”

<- Back to Wallpapers selection

Very much in fashion throughout history, these papers enhanced the homes of aristocratic and prosperous families of Europe, Russia and America.
Some of the notable“trend-setters” were Thomas Jefferson, Sir Horace Walpole, Marie Antoinette…

The vogue of these vintage decors continued in the XX century and were particularly appreciated by major figures involved in the decorative arts, such as Henry du Pont, Nancy McLelland, Henri Clouzot, Charles Follot, André Carlhian, Jacqueline Kennedy…

Rare and highly-prized as collectibles, these vintage papers are an investment like all art works.

Many hang in historic homes and important private and public collections throughout the world, such as:

  • Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris
  • Victoria and Albert Museum, London
  • Cooer Hewitt National Design Museum, New York
  • Deutsches Tapetenmuseum, Kassel, Germany
  • Musée du papier Peint, Rixheim, France
