antique-wallcovering-restoration

This antique Chinese garden wallpaper, which previously hung in a dining room owned by Gloria Vanderbilt, was well over a century old and was showing its age. Besides, the original design had been hand painted in watercolors. After being restored for a triplex penthouse apartment, the application had to be as delicate and precise as the paper itself. The company covered the upper walls of the main drawing room (above) with the antique papers, along with a number of decorative paint finishes.
