50% Off Fat Quarters

Meet us at the Paris Métro, and we’ll take a trip back in time to celebrate Art Nouveau design. Often inspired by nature, this 19th-century style reflects vine-like lines and artful, organic movement.


Whether your artwork is a new take on a glamorous old-world lithograph or evokes decorative architecture, your repeating design will be previewed on wallpaper, so think large scale.

Don’t miss these tips for designing large-scale wallpaper.
