Little Greene launches London Wallpapers – historical wallcoverings reproduced for the modern home

Not content with offering heritage paints, Little Greene has now moved onto period wallcoverings with its London Wallpapers range.

There are 47 colourways available over eight designs, each inspired by historical documents in the English Heritage archive and spanning the years between 1760 and 1890. In fact, each design has a provenance tracing it back to the original house in which it was discovered. 

The designs have been re-scaled and re-coloured and produced using modern manufacturing methods – some, such as the flock papers, reflect closely the archive document whilst others achieve a more modern look through the use of vivid colours and metallic finishes. The two featured above are the floral Broadwick Street (circa 1775) and Great Ormond Street (circa 1890), a plants and parrots design, discovered in a house opposite the children’s hospital. Prices cary depending on your choice of design, contact Little Greene for further details.
