Classic, timeless patterns closely connected to the carefree Lexington lifestyle are at the heart of our brand. And now, that snug textile feel that makes a house into a home is translated onto the walls in this, our very first Lexington wallpaper collection. Our main source of inspiration has been a traveler’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 cutouts. 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. Welcome to our world! Welcome to our dream!
Herman is a classic mussel pattern that is very contemporary. The design comes from a small detail in the Harriet medallion pattern that we liked so much we turned it into a whole new wallpaper. New England is known for its coastal towns and Herman’s shell motifs bring an attractive touch of the seaside to your home. Herman has a warm textile feel, created by the engraving technique used for printing. It is named after American author Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick, among others (1819-1891).
