Happy Wallpaper Wednesday!

Scalamandre has collaborated with The Metropolitan Museum of Art to create a stunning Fabric, Wallcovering & Trimming collection. 

This captivating collection, created in collaboration with The Met, draws on artworks and objects from across nine of The Met’s 17 curatorial departments to create a rich mosaic of historical narratives. 

In 18th-century Europe, Indian dyed cloths known as PALAMPORES were prized as hand-printed bed coverings and wall hangings. The inspiration for our pattern is a palampore featuring a flower-and-fruit-bearing serpentine tree emerging from a hillock with stylized peaks. Originally sourced to Sri Lanka, it was likely made for European communities in Batavia and Colombo, or for families of mixed European and Asian descent wishing to emulate Western taste.

The Metropolitan Palampore – Mural is a set-contained panel inside a floral border. A large serpentine tree surrounded by flora is digitally printed on non-woven paper and is astriking focal point in any room. The 14-foot-long panel can be resized for lower ceiling heights. To reduce the height of the mural, the top border may be cut off, straight under the floral garland. The center section of the mural may then be cropped to reduce it to the desired height. The top border will be placed back above the panel to sit at the top of the wall. The standard height of this wall panel is 14 feet (4.66 yards). The border height is 8.5″. The bottom border and mountainous base together are 25″ high. The center climbing tree section is 134.5″ high. Within this section, the pattern vertical repeat is 60.5″. This pattern is also available in both a complementary fabric and wallpaper in four colorways.
