Image of the Week: Fromental's Paradiso


Shown above, Fromental's Paradiso, a hand-painted, silk wallcovering in copper iron inspired by traditional 18th-century Chinoiserie pieces.

If you are a design student interested in learning more about the history of this style wallcovering, The Victoria and Albert Museum has a nice online Chinoiserie style guide, as well a strong textile section.

Great Blog
Can anyone tell me if this wallcovering is being reproduced? It is great.
Thanks

Hi Louise, thanks for your comment! If you follow the link to Fromental's site, you should be able to find buying information. It is a British site. Hopee that helps.
