Since its founding in 1797, Zuber & Cie wallpapers’ fame has spread far and wide, from King Louis Philippe awarding Jean Zuber the Legion of Honor in 1834 to Jackie Kennedy installing Zuber’s “Vues de l’Amérique du Nord” (Views of North America) in the White House. According to France Today, the company still uses the same antique woodblocks, the same paint formulas, and the same time-honored processes to create its stunning wallpapers as it did in Jean Zuber’s time.
This fall, Gibbs Smith released a beautiful new book Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper. It features gorgeous displays of friezes, borders, ceiling roses, and architectural trompe l’oeil photographed for Zuber in homes in the United States, France, and the United Kingdom. The foreword is by Pat Altschul, who has the most beautiful home and dining room featuring Zuber’s “La Guerre de l’Independance” (The War of American Independence). I am such a huge fan of Zuber’s exquisite wallpapers, and I am delighted to share a sneak peek today!
Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper is available for purchase via Amazon. Photographs by John Neitzel from Zuber: Two Centuries of Panoramic Wallpaper by Brian D. Coleman, reprinted by permission of Gibbs Smith.
