Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Carnegie Wallcoverings
Very excited to see the Smithsonian taking interest in historic wallcoverings. "The Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum‘s Collections Committee voted unanimously to acquire three samples of Carnegie wallcoverings into the Museum‘s permanent collection. Two selections are high-performance woven polyethylene Xorel patterns Artisan Embroider and Veneer Embossed. The third selection is Acorn, a specialty wallcovering decorated with ground walnut and green tea on a recycled paper backing," Carnegiehttp://specialtyfabricsreview.com/articles/042514_smithsonian_carnegie.html
Have been a Smithsonian member for a long time and have enjoyed the museums in several different cities. It is great that they are keeping up historic buildings and displaying materials from the past for the present.
