Outrageous Wallpapers At MoDA

Shows a loud geometric pattern.

A selection of the loudest and brightest wallpapers from the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture’s collections, chosen by the Friends of MoDA are now on show. The exhibition is free and runs until October 2, 2005.

Bright and garish, wonderful or tasteless, these wallpapers are sure to provoke strong reactions of the ‘love-them-or-hate-them’ variety.

The exhibition contains around 30 wallpaper samples, all bright, and all likely to provoke your criticism, comment and memories. These wallpapers were produced for the mass market between the 1920s and the 1950s — evidence that people in the past did not limit themselves to plain magnolia walls.
