Little Greene teams up with Whitworth Art Gallery for 50s Line Papers 1950s wallpaper range


Not just a 50s-inspired wallpaper range, Little Greene has gone back to source ongoing, teaming up with Manchester's Whitworth Art Gallery to reissue some of the best 1950s wallpapers under the name 50s Line Papers.

The Whitworth Art Gallery houses one of the largest wallpaper archives in the UK, with some real gems from the 1950s. In particular, some of the best were originally produced by celebrated wallpaper manufacturer, John Line & Sons of Southall, London, which are the ones being reissued now.

All the papers are careful interpretations of the original archive documents, both in scale and detail, one of which is pictured above, a couple more captured over the page. Little Greene's 50s Line Papers collection will be launched this month 2011 at Maison & Objet, Paris and then, from the beginning of February, the wallpapers will be available nationally and internationally through Little Greene's network of distributors or direct from the company. No news on pricing as yet - if you're interested, drop them a line.
