SWANS

“At IDI (Interior Design International) Osborne & Little launched a new range of ‘plains’ which are anything but plain. The papers reproduce the brush fi nishes achieved by the expert painter including marbling, graining, stipple and drag painting. With such skills becoming a rarity, and consequently prohibitively expensive, these new papers are an excellent alternative giving a very similar effect at a fraction of the cost.” Interior Design, September 1981
