Founded in 1889, F. Schumacher & Co. has designed wallcoverings and fabrics that have graced the walls of public buildings from the White House to the Metropolitan Opera House as well as private residences such as Cornelius Vanderbilt's the Breakers. Mural artist and product designer Fischer has arranged a collection of 600 of the company's wallcoverings in a way that will inspire both professional and amateur interior designers to use color in decoration. The samples are organized into sections by color, and within each section from dark to light tones, with an introductory sketch of some of the wallcoverings that shows how they can be used in a room. The index provides information about each of the wallpapers and the collections in which they originally appeared. Recommended for large interior design collections.
