Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From modest beginnings, wallpaper developed to become a common element of a home's interior — whether it be a castle or cottage. From the printed lining papers of the early 16th century to the computer-aided limited editions of today, wallpaper has played a key role in interior decoration. Chosen to complement the furnishings, it is often used as a way to transcend or enhance the immediate environment. It also reflects the tastes and aspirations of successive generations, as well as the technical innovations of its time.

Wallpaper in Interior Decoration offers a fascinating overview of the history of wallpaper. From 18th-century flocks, the exquisite handpainted papers imported from China, and dramatic French scenic decorations to the always-popular designs of William Morris, the washable machine-printed wallpapers from the late-19th century, and embossed wallcoverings, this guide covers all the major styles and influences, displayed in magnificent, full-color illustrations. Part social history, part idea book, part decorative art book, part graphic design reference, Wallpaper in Interior Decoration informs, inspires, and is sure to delight anyone interested in the decorative arts and the best of interior design.
