Fresco Velvet Fabric by Blackpop for AUTHOR's collections of British-made luxury and unique home decor

Creatively designed and digitally printed in the UK by the talented team at Blackpop. Please note that the price is based per metre.

Collaborating with the Sir John Soane's Museum and directly working and reworking architects’ drawings, paintings and objects d'art, Blackpop has undoubtedly created its most opulent and dramatic collection to date. For Fresco, Maxine at Blackpop reworked two of 18th century Scottish architect Robert Adam's illustrations, that never came into realisation until now, embedded in her design.

Why we love this product

Complimentary, contrasting colours.

Originally these illustrations by Robert Adam in the Sir John Soane Museum that are reworked into this design were penned for floor coverings that never came into realisation. Robert Adam was a Scottish architect in the mid 18th century, working in a Neo Classical style and is responsible for much of London's architecture today. Adam is renowned for his work at Osterley Park, Kedleston Hall and Syon House, as well as Lansdowne house, London, to name but a few.

'Fresco' in the world of painting and art is a technique of mural painting executed upon freshly laid, or wet lime plaster. Water is used as the vehicle for the dry-powder pigment to merge with the plaster, and with the setting of the plaster, the painting becomes an integral part of the wall. 'Fresco' in Italian also means 'fresh' and this wallpaper is definitely a bright and fresh design. We love how the traditional is merged with the contemporary to make something truly unique.
