History of Wallpapers

History of Wallpapers - Artevella

There's something about wallpaper that just makes a house feel like a home. Whether it's the classic floral prints of years gone by or the modern geometric patterns of today, wallpaper can add instant personality to any space. And while it may seem like a daunting task to tackle, history shows that wallpaper is actually quite easy to work with.

The earliest known use of wallpaper dates back to the 6th century, when the Chinese used rice paper to decorate the walls of their homes. By the 13th century, the Europeans had caught on, and wallpaper began to gain popularity throughout the continent. It wasn't until the 18th century, however, that wallpaper really took off.

During this time, the British made significant advancements in wallpaper production, making it easier and more affordable to produce. This coincided with a rise in the popularity of home decoration, and as a result, wallpaper became a must-have for any fashionable home.

Today, wallpaper is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, thanks in part to the many new and innovative ways it can be used. From accent walls to entire rooms, there's no limit to what you can do with wallpaper. And with so many different styles to choose from, there's sure to be a wallpaper that's perfect for your home.

Historical Phases of Wallpaper

There are four historical phases of wallpapering in home decoration. 

The first phase is known as the "pioneer phase" and it spans from the late 1700s to the early 1800s. This phase is characterized by simple, hand-painted designs on walls made of either plaster or wood. 

The second phase, known as the "Victorian phase," began in the early 1800s and lasted until the early 1900s. This phase is characterized by more elaborate and detailed wallpaper designs, often with multiple colors and patterns. 

The third phase, known as the "art deco phase," began in the 1920s and lasted until the 1940s. This phase is characterized by bold, geometric patterns and bright colors. 

The fourth and final phase, known as the "contemporary phase," began in the 1970s and continues to the present day. This phase is characterized by more abstract designs and a wider range of colors and patterns.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
