Cole & Son - Mariinsky Damask - Petrouchka in Red108/3014
A luxurious flock damask wallpaper, adding intense colour and drama to any interior, Petrouchka re-introduces the flock print to the Cole & Son library.
Flock printing, the application of wool or synthetic fibres to paper was originally invented in the 17th century to imitate expensive cut velvet wall hangings. Petrouchka has been printed at a traditional paper mill in the North of England in a range of five jewel-like colourings of drawing room red, beize green, shimmering black, indigo blue and a vintage lilac.
This collection features an exciting and original interpretation of historical wallpaper designs which celebrate the drama and occasion of the theatre, opera and ballet. Featuring a host of damask patterns, this ornamental and decorative collection with its classical detail, rich colouring and elegant proportions, contains ten stunning designs, each paying homage to celebrated stars of the stage and to iconic theatres from around the world.
