London wallpapers IV: Chic wallpaper from the archives

Little Greene is known for constantly breathing new life into its traditional designs. Once again, this famous British paint and wallpaper manufacturer has searched the English Heritage archives to identify historical designs, which can be adapted to 21st century interior design standards. The latest collection, London Wallpapers IV, is a glorious collection of authentic motifs, which come from the London area. By applying a new scale and new colours, the old patterns have been adapted to modern interiors. The collection will be launched in January 2017 during Déco-Off Paris.

The collection includes 12 designs with a total of 58 wallpapers in an attractive palette of classic and contemporary colour schemes, complemented by subtle printed textures. The new wallpaper collection consists of seven new patterns, all in a variety of beautiful shades. Five of those patterns are already part of the existing Little Greene Collection, combining the original Little Greene colour scheme of London Wallpapers IV with new, modern colours.

The original patterns come from centuries old British design and can be traced back to the period between 1760 and 1950. Most were produced in London and were used in the interiors of chic city and country houses. Each design has its very own origin story, which can be traced back to the house in which it was discovered.

Here you will see an overview of the total of 58 wallpapers. Want to know more about these specific wallpaper types? Please visit the Little Greene Blog to learn more.
