Welcome to the Wallpaper History Society’s website

Founded in 1986, the Wallpaper History Society provides a unique forum for wallcoverings professionals and enthusiasts.

The Society, which is a registered charity, celebrates the history, design, social relevance and conservation of historic and contemporary wallcoverings and promotes both their study and that of the many trades and professions associated with them. If you are interested in wallcoverings – paper or otherwise – and their contribution to our economic and cultural lives, this is the Society for you!

We are sorry that it hasn’t been possible to have our usual range of events this year, and hope that we will be able to arrange some in the not-too-distant future. We are pleased, however, that at this difficult time our latest copy of the Review, the journal of the Society, has reached our members. Feedback has been very positive, and we have some new members who may now wish to order back-copies. Or, if you are not yet a member, you may like to take advantage of our current offer and catch up with some wallpaper-related reading, or perhaps give copies as Christmas presents.





In the run up to Christmas we are offering a bumper deal on selected back-copies of The Review, the journal of the Wallpaper History Society. Normally selling at £12.50 each, we are offering a pack of four copies: 1993/4, 1995, 1996/7 and 2001 for £30 UK, £40 outside UK, including delivery. The contents are timeless, and an enjoyable read for anyone who is fascinated by historic interiors. Numbers are limited, so hurry whilst stocks last!

To order your pack, email for payment options.
