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!
Stripes form the basis of New England style and Lexington’s identity. Stephen originates from a pin-striped man’s shirt that Lexington used as inspiration for their bed linen. It is printed using an old collograph printing technique, and is named after American author Stephen King, who wrote Carrie and Pet Sematary, among others (1947- ).
