James Randolph Rogers began working with historic wallpapers in 2007, as a Conservation Assistant in the South West of England. Two years were spent conserving, restoring and recreating historic wallpapers for palaces and stately homes across the country.
After gaining the skills needed to authentically reproduce these wallpapers, JRR moved to New York in 2011 to pursue his dream of creating his own hand printed wallpaper collection. It was there in a small apartment in Queens that he spent five years obsessively carving wallpaper blocks from pear wood and printing samples in distemper paints.
JRR now happily lives and works in the Cotswolds and is constantly developing new wallpaper reproductions to add to his collection. He continues to print and hang wallpapers on both sides of the Atlantic as well as recreating wallpapers from found fragments.
Hand carved pear wood blocks... Hand mixed distemper paints... Oar press printing...Sheets not rolls...
All wallpapers are made using methods and materials accurate to pre 1830’s Domino wallpapers.
