Little Greene Wallpaper Massingberd Blossom Oriental
The Little Greene Massingberd Blossom Wallpaper is a beautiful representation of British Edwardian design with a clear influence from the era's fascination with oriental aesthetics. This design is not only aesthetically pleasing but also historically significant, reflecting the passion for oriental design during that time. The Edwardian period embraced oriental design for its perceived connection to nature, simplicity, and harmony, values that were highly appreciated in the pre-modern artistic sensibility.
The Massingberd Blossom Wallpaper features trailing blossoms and repeating birds, which are common elements found in early hand-painted chinoiserie, further emphasizing its oriental influence. What sets this wallpaper apart is the use of traditional surface printing, which adds a tactile quality and depth to the design that is often lacking in conventionally mass-produced papers.
This wallpaper has a fascinating history as it once adorned the walls of the Grey Room at Gunby Hall in Lincolnshire, a significant country house with historical ties to William Massingberd, a Member of Parliament. The fact that it was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1944 highlights its enduring cultural importance. The Massingberd Blossom Wallpaper is an excellent choice for those seeking to infuse their living spaces with a blend of history, oriental charm, and artistic sophistication.
