Based on a fabric from the V&A archive dating back to 1918, Paeonia depicts large peony heads, built up with layers of luscious colour. Featuring ornate motifs and exotic blooms, these fabrics recalled hand-painted Chinese wall panels originally seen in 18th-century European decoration. The wallpaper retains most of the original textile's detail and has been skilfully remastered giving space for the stunning blooms to flourish and transform home interior spaces. In warm sand the neutral background is adorned with flowers in soft tones of coral, ochre and teal.
Available in 3 colours: Warm Sand, Indigo and golden Lacquer.
Paeonia archive inspiration: Furnishing fabric, printed cotton, Calico Printers' Association, Manchester, 1918
The V&A’s collections narrate a rich history of British textile production. A prosperous business was the Calico Printers’ Association, a textile company established in Manchester in 1899 through the amalgamation of 46 textile printing companies and 13 textile merchants. By the early 20th century, the company was producing high quality dress fabrics, traditional chintzes and engaged in the research and development of textiles. During the interwar years, its design studios produced printed cottons inspired by a revival in interior design and fashion for chinoiserie.
