FARROW & BALL unveils three new wallpapers inspired by the 1940sFarrow & Ball celebrates its 70th year with a new wallpaper collection inspired by the decade it was founded in—the 1940s. Like all artisanal wallpapers, the new designs are block printed using real paints, creating a seamless look in any space. Each design is available in seven colours. Available at showrooms and farrow-ball.com, September 1, 2016. These three uniquely textured papers are contemporary interpretations of classic ’40s prints.
Enigma is a beguiling and bold geometric design, encompassing a series of interlocking rectangles. Arcade, inspired by the art deco movement is a soft, romantic take on the classic curved motif. Gable depicts charming rural scene of ploughed fields and farmyard animals, perfectly captures the youthful innocence of simpler times.
