ZUBER: TWO CENTURIES OF PANORAMIC WALLPAPER

Brian D. Coleman

Join author Brian D. Coleman, MD, at The Slate in the Dallas Design District for an author’s lecture on his new book, Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper. For over 200 years, Zuber has been the premier manufacturer of scenic wallpapers. Since its founding in 1797, Zuber & Cie wallpapers’ fame has spread far and wide, from King Louis Philippe awarding Jean Zuber the Legion of Honor in 1834 to Jackie Kennedy installing Zuber’s “Vues de l’Amérique du Nord” in the White House.

Long admired for its panoramas of historic North America, Italy, Japan, China and more, the company’s reputation for superior quality has spread far and wide. Today, these stunningly exquisite papers are printed using the original antique woodblocks, the same paint formulas, and the time honored processes that were used in the 1800s.

Join author Brian Coleman to see gorgeous hand-printed Zuber wallpapers in locations as varied as the United States, England, France, and Scotland, in settings ranging from townhomes and metropolitan apartments to a governor’s mansion, an eighteenth-century colonial home, a private chateau, a castle, and a very modern apartment. Gorgeous displays of friezes, borders, ceiling roses, and architectural trompe l’oeil, have been photographed for Zuber in homes in the United States, France, and the United Kingdom.
