Looking for something truly luxurious and whimsical to cover your walls? Discover Zoffany Jaipur Wallpaper in linen, velvet and silk. The collection is inspired by the art of Indian miniature painting, practiced today in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
The art of the Mughal era (a South Asian dynasty from 16th – 19th century) is reimagined for modern English sensibilities to create this contemporary fusion style. As you can see, the rich color, texture and detail of traditional Indian and Persian designs help romanticize the sultanate era and its day-to-day court life.
Elephants and tigers prance regally across a marbleized backdrop. Peacocks strut across a field of fruit trees interspersed among onion domed houses and temples. Persian polo players in red, white and blue take swing amongst a sea of textured linen. While clever paisleys and damask patterns flower and branch out across silken walls of paper.
Zoffany’s first collection of wallpaper was released in 1983. The idea for the Zoffany Jaipur wallpaper collection took root after its design director viewed a collection of Indian paintings at Oxford’s Ashmoelan Museum. Drawn by the art’s beauty and detail, the Zoffany team created an entire line of fabrics and wallpapers in honor of the royal Mughal lifestyle.
