Character and Sporting Wallpapers

The motto from Lewis and Wood: "In a market saturated with choice, it is crucial to produce things that are different. We were first known for our witty "sporting" and "character" wallpapers, then the 'big prints' on natural fabrics and now the "wide width" wall papers, all designed to bring a lasting pleasure at a fair price."  The company of Lewis and Wood do all of the above very well and last month we showed you some of their large bold prints. This week take a gander at a few of their great Sporting and Character wallpapers!

European Fish - This original illustration and manuscript was taken from a diary of a Victorian gentleman angler. Great for corridors, baths, bars and cloakrooms. Colorways: Just the one you see here.

Print Room - This paper was created from a set of four French engravings which gives you a witty and ideal choice for bathrooms and bedrooms. Colorways: Legume (shown), Salmon, Powder Blue, Buff, Cobalt Blue and Dijon.

Gilpin Horses - This paper features a set of six etchings from 1760 of the working horse by Sawrey Gilpin. He was employed by the Duke of Cumberland to paint portraits of his horses. This paper would be great in back hallway or unique rooms. Colorways: Black (shown), Saddling Brown, Smoke or Tan.
