French circa 1930
Adelphi’s Early-Twentieth Century Collection draws on the work and influence of the Wiener Werkstätte in Vienna and the French Moderne movement--later known as Art Deco--two of the most influential design schools of the century. Designers in Vienna and in Paris inspired and influenced a generation of designers throughout Europe and the United States, who created a huge variety of patterns that combine fantastic organic and geometric forms with a vibrant color palette.

Although produced by a well known French firm, the designer of this quintessential Deco pattern has not yet been identified. The subdued color palette and highly stylized but recognizable trees and figures create a quiet and somewhat mysterious tone. 

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution.
