Following on from my visit to the Robin & Lucienne Day exhibition the other day, I notice Sanderson have released a fabulous new 1950s range in wallpapers and furnishing fabrics.
The "mobiles" design is classic iconic 50s, especially in this killer midcentury interior setting.
I'm in love with "Fifi", which is a reproduction of an original 1950s Sanderson wallpaper that was rediscovered in a loft! I'm thinking about getting some to paper the back of my boring Argos bookcase. I had hoped to find a classic Jetsons-y, space-age-y wallpaper to go in there - I was picturing something in the vein of Jessie Tait's Cherokee design - but I couldn't find anything like that (given the 1950s interiors trend, you'd think there'd be more 50s wallpapers available, but apparently not).
There are a couple of funky Tiki-influenced designs too (and yes, this is how I wish my workspace looked).
To close, I'll leave you with this fantastically un-PC advert for Sanderson wallpapers from 1948:
