What is this?

All-over floral design of stylized flowers printed in taupe, beige, and light pink on silver foil ground.

Why is this in our collection?

Love in Bloom was designed and produced by the Jack Denst Company, one of the leading wallpaper companies of the 1950s through the 1970s. Their papers consistently reflected current trends, which were printed bold designs on paper, vinyls, and Mylar foils. The roll proposed for acquisition is unused, in mint condition. We have a large collection of Jack Denst sample books, one of which features the Love in Bloom pattern. This paper would further strengthen our holdings of 1960s American papers and would also make a great companion to the sample book.
