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.

Spiral Willow's bold, flowing design is a typically whimsical Art Deco take on natural forms, but with a striking color combination. It was designed by Rene Crevel and originally machine-printed, although the printing process used rollers fitted with felt strips, to which paint was applied, in an effort to approximate high-quality block printing.

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