A pretty Japanese inspired floral design in a range of 5 different contemporary colours. The flowers in these designs are a blown vinyl which gives an interesting raised texture to the otherwise smooth wallcovering. Clean, bright and affordable -perfect for feature walls. Also available are co-ordinating plains, which can be used on their own or in conjunction with the floral designs. A small but perfect collection from Crown.
I suppose the above sample image is Geisha Coral; two others are Geisha Peppermint and Geisha Mulberry — I came across them listed on eBay.co.uk.
As far as I can tell, the line has been discontinued. And despite giving a link above for Crown Wallcoverings, it is not their own website. I have been unable to locate one for them. And this may be why — from here:
In 1899 a large number of wallpaper firms came together under the umbrella title of ‘Wallpaper Manufacturers’ (WPM) and subsequently some of their products were sold under the trademark ‘Crown’
From that, I glean that “Crown Wallcoverings” is not truly a company — just a trademark.
Note the similarity between these two logos?
The former is the Crown Wallcoverings logo; the latter is Crown Paints.
Apparently this is no coincidence, methinks. Notice this from a Wikipedia article on Crown Paints:
The origins of the business lie in the history of paint making in Darwen which can be traced back to the late 1850s. It initially traded as WalPaMur after the initials of The Wall Paper Manufacturers’ Company. The Company was independent for over a century before, as Crown Berger, it was taken over by Williams Holdings in 1987 and then by Akzo Nobel in 1990.
But I have digressed to a heavy degree.
My point was just to stress that there is likely no chance anyone will ever find a Crown Wallcoverings website because it is merely a trademark of an unknown number of related companies operating as The Wallpaper Manufacturer’s Company (WPM). Or so it seems to me.
