Strike a Light vintage matchbox wallpaper

Strike a light wallpaper

We featured prints based around matchbox art before, but this Strike a Light wallpaper takes the idea to a whole new level. 

The paper is a striking piece of design, decorated with a repeat pattern of vivid vintage-style matchboxes. Each matchbox has their own fascinating motifs and slogans and, as a whole, the paper captures a bygone period of advertising and its unusual looks would make it perfect for a feature wall. 

This is the most colourful of the options, but it's also available in a charcoal or a taupe wash. 

A roll of the paper is £60 from Wallpaper Space.

Matchbox Light

The Matchbox Light is new in at MarMar Co this autumn.

As you can see from the picture here, the light has been designed to look like a traditional matchbox and it opens and closes like matchbox, allowing you to control how much light it emits. Available available with either orange or yellow lining, the light measures considerably more than a real matchbox at 17cm x 17cm x 7cm. It is environmentally sound , being made from recycled cardboard and FSC certified paper.

Buy it online from MarMar Co priced £32.50.
