What’s old is new again in the interiors world. Panoramic wall murals were a major decorative trend in the 18th century, but now we’re seeing the classicist accent integrated into more modern and eclectic spaces. Manufacturers Joseph Dufour et Cie and Zuber et Cie were the predominant brands of the 18th and 19th centuries, and were loved by French King Louis Philippe I and, later, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
Today, you may find hand-painted wall murals and printed mural wallpapers alongside a sleek Parsons table, a midcentury Danish wing chair, or a modern chrome canopy bed. We love the juxtaposition of the Old World aesthetic with funkier, more contemporary pieces, but even in traditional settings, the painted scenery never ceases to look chic.
