On the hunt for historically accurate designs

Zoffany Wallpaper offers the ideal solution.

Here at The Best Wallpaper Place, we offer products from many well-respected and brilliant companies. Zoffany Wallpaper offers a unique collection of wallcoverings that are ideal for restoration projects, modern-meets-vintage décor, and historical reference.
The designers at Zoffany believe that every room deserves to be beautifully finished, and it shines through in their work. Their portfolio includes woven furnishing fabrics, a “Naturals” collection with a modern feel, and a collection of original designs with an Art Deco feel. Their UK-built furniture incorporates traditional finishes, materials, and techniques with a timeless style. In response to requests from boutique hotels, they developed a line of vinyl wallpapers and coordinating fabrics. Their paint range is also firmly rooted in heritage colours, and is a result of their research into the field of historically accurate wallpaper reproductions.

The Zoffany company released its first line of 12 wallpapers in 1984 as a result of years of research and reconstruction that took place in Temple Newsam, one of Britain’s most notable grand country houses. These hand screen printed designs, intended to copy hand-blocked printed wallpaper and its characteristics, were time consuming and required much trial-and-error. The results are stunning, and were greeted with much enthusiasm from both the design community and the restoration community.

The first collection, “Temple Newsam” set the Zoffany designers apart, making them world leaders in the precious art of fabric and wallcovering reproduction. In fact, the reproductions were such a success that many of the designs were hung in the room where they originated in this Tudor-Jacobean mansion on the outskirts of Leeds. The home is now a museum and is one of the most extensively and carefully restored structures in the world.

Four decades into its life as a leader in heritage designs, Zoffany continues to provide machine-printed, high-quality, historically accurate wallpaper at an affordable price point. In addition to the “Temple Newsam” collection, their other heritage-based collections include “French Prints” and Red Book.” Their dedication to meticulously reproducing designs from significant house collections with permission from The National Trust is unwavering.
