Historic Collections

Collected, recreated and curated over many years, our rich archive of original designs provides the basis of three collections.

Paradise Restored:

The new Paradise Restored Collection includes historic designs reworked in contemporary colourings whilst being faithful to their provenance and original design, we are proud to offer these special papers for the first time in 2019.

Paradise Archive:

Paradise Archive brings a selection of our most popular historic designs together, meticulously recreated from original documents and fragments from the Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian periods.

Old Paradise:

Our eclectic Old Paradise collection of traditional yet unusual designs originate from the early 18th and 19th Centuries, and others in to the 20th Century. These unique papers have formed the basis of our own wallpaper collection since the 1980s.
