Polo players compete on this embroidered linen wallpaper called Pulu (“ball” in Persian)

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.

Jaipur Plain uses a marbling technique and compliments any fabric or paper in the collection

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.
