The Warner Textile Archive, the nation’s second largest flat textile collection and home of twentieth century coronation fabrics, is crammed full of artistic merit. It was only a matter of time before this collection entered the mainstream of interior design, and boy did they do it in style.
The Archive has selected eight vintage fabric designs and recreated them as luxury wallpapers, all of which embody a sense of retro Britain ranging from the 1800s to the ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s, in a mixture of standard rolls, large and A & B panel formats.
Moving from sleek florals to animal packed stampedes and punchy psychedelic rocket prints, there’s something for all tastes. Archivist and Commercial Manager Kate Wigley has chosen each design to reflect a different facet of the Warner legacy; a selection which I personally think has hit the ground running and will be destined for great things within the retro home furnishing market.
So if you’re looking for something ultra chic and unique to really get your guests talking, give those tired walls a fresh new look with something really original.
