The Timorous Beasties Decouper hand-print 3 wallpaper is a contemporary wallpaper take on 18th Century decorative chinioserie and toiles de jouey patterns. The literal meaning of Decouper in French is to 'cut out” and is also the source of the term 'découpage”. The Découpage style of decoration became popular in 18th Century Britain with upper and burgeoning middle classes using to enhance their interiors. Images were cut from valuable prints and lacquered onto hatboxes, gift boxes and even walls. Unlike the sentimental patterns from that era Timorous Beasties have created a twist on the darker side of modern contemporary urban life depictions of skateboarders, BMX riders, shoppers and tramps which are beautifully silhouetted against a decorative backdrop of traditional pattern. This Decouper wallpaper design challenges the ideas of class, wealth and taste of both old and new ages. Pattern repeat: 160cm (style half drop) Please note price is per 10m roll.
