Regency Era Wallpapers
Wallpaper of expensive styles and artistic variety were brought to America as early as 1735. Rolls of wallpaper did not appear in America until 1790, so most designs imported before this time arrived in square sheets. French influence dominated the design of domestic wallpapers; but by the end of the eighteenth century, Philadelphia had become the center of wallpaper production in the United States. Subjects ranged from commemorative and panoramic scenes to designs drawn from architecture and nature. See collection of Regency wallpaper designs here.
