Wallpapers these days can make quite a statement, gone are the days of boring woodchip painted magnolia. There's now a huge variety of papers to choose from an we find ourselves doing a lot more wallpaper PR.
The use of wallpaper goes back a long way - the earliest papers are often called ‘black-and-white’ papers because they were printed in carbon ink and one of the popular uses wasto line the inside of wooden boxes, or chests. A fragmentary design that includes the arms of England surrounded by Tudor roses, masks and vases of flowers has been found at Besford Court in Worcestershire; c.1550-70 in date. The Wallpaper History Society founded in 1986 provides a unique forum for wallcoverings professionals and enthusiasts.
