Sidewall, Touffe, 1952

This is a Sidewall. It was manufactured by United Wallpapers. It is dated 1952 and we acquired it in 1991. Its medium is machine printed on paper. It is a part of the Wallcoverings department.

Here is another way to get the look of fabric covered walls. This simple yet elegant design of button tufting printed in a saturated red would soften the look of any room. While the small scale of the design creates a nice background pattern the deep red color calls out for attention. Would be equally attractive covering all four walls, or hung in panels for a more pared down look.
