Piero Fornasetti was an Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver born in 1913 who created whimsical and iconographic illustrations and designs influenced by Greek and Roman architecture that were adapted for fashion and interior accessories. Cole & Son have adapted his magical motifs from their archives to create this exquisite design. Frutto Proibito gloriously combines different archival Fornasetti motifs from the 1940s and 50s for this non-woven wallpaper. Mischievous monkeys sit amongst sprawling pomegranate tree branches in a Sage background with Magenta fruit in this luxury wallpaper design.

Please note that there can be discrepancies between batches. We highly recommend ordering a sample first and then purchasing multiple rolls together to ensure they are from the same batch. For more information on our refund policy for wallpaper please view our payment and delivery page.

Why we love this product

Time stood still inside the Milanese Patisserie

Here, we are recalled back to Fornasetti's archival work in the prime of the mid-century interior. These luscious pomegranate trees frequented their time alongside the 
wood panels inside many favoured Milanese patisseries, namely Dulciora. Meanwhile, guests would be welcomed by mischievous monkeys foraging for ripe fruit. Fornasetti has quintessentially composed a playground of lifelike etched flora and fauna with a decadent, bold print. Venturing closer into the piece, deep ink grounds embellish the forbidden fruits of Magenta.

This luxury wallpaper works perfectly for a feature wall or to bring natural greens to an open-plan kitchen.
