Classic, timeless patterns closely connected to the carefree Lexington lifestyle are at the heart of the brand. Now, that snug textile feel that makes a house into a home is translated onto the walls in this, Borastapeter Lexington wallpaper collection. Their main source of inspiration has been a traveller's handbook over New England dated in 1899, which we stumbled upon in a second-hand bookshop. Some of the patterns in the collection are direct interpretations of this historical journey through maps and magazine cut-outs. Like New England which comes from the chapter on New England in The United States Baedeker's Handbook for Travellers from 1899 and is a historical survey of New England and the town of Lexington. The map is digitally printed and forms a picture or wall decoration that can be hung like wallpaper with a dimension of 186 x 135 cm. It is ideal for a hall, office or children's room, for example. While Emily is inspired by a fragment of old Cretonne-patterned wallpaper found in a New England archive. Dan is a stripe, and stripes form the basis of New England style and Lexington's identity. This modern broad block stripe is classic and is printed using an old collagraph printing technique and has a wonderful surface in both the light and dark colourways All of the names pay tribute to the legendary writers of New England. And, true to our legacy, the prints have that tactile, fabric like surface reminiscent of soft linen shirts and bath towels hanging to dry from a sun-bleached porch.
