Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s Wallcoverings department contains the largest and most varied collection of wallpaper in the United States, with more than 10,000 examples. Pieces date from the late 17th century through today and represent many countries of origin.

The collection includes individual wallpaper pieces, full rolls, sample books, advertisements, and printing tools that have been collected for their historic associations, as design inspiration, or as examples of printed material. They trace the transformation of the medium from hand-printed luxury product to mass-produced decor. In addition to wallpaper from France, England, the United States, Japan, and Scandinavia, the department also holds 17th-century Dutch gilded leather wallcoverings, and German wallpapers from the 1950s. Early American wallpaper and wallpaper designed by contemporary artists are growing aspects of the collection.

Special strengths:
20th-century American production
19th-century French floral compositions and hand-printed panoramic scenic wallpapers, such as Views of Italy and El Dorado
19th- and 20th-century American bandboxes covered in wallpaper
Chinese hand-painted wallpapers
Wallcoverings, in the Museum’s Design Resource Center, is open to visitors by advance appointment, and special tours are available.

You can view the collections here: http://www.cooperhewitt.org/COLLECTI...lcoverings.asp

I've heard that too, that removing wallpaper can be a toxic, messy job.

I prefer using fabrics with insulating backing on stretcher bars, myself. I suppose it is partially because I don't own where I live so temporary wall treatments are better for me.

If I owned my own place, I think wall paper might have its place in smaller rooms. For a large area... I don't know. It would really depend on the paper. There are lots of Japanese paper wall coverings that I appreciate most of all.

I would be careful to learn about the chemicals used in the adhesive and the dyes and materials in the paper itself - especially important in a bedroom and around children. What is that wallpaper paste made of, anyway?

^ooh great comment

It would be nice to see different options for wallpaper
I also don't want to use that really 'sticky' and hard to remove stuff...
I remember reading about a company through the Interior Decor thread that creates wallpaper (think large posters/stickers cuz it's usually not big enough to cover the whole wall) and theirs is supposed to be easy to peel off
It makes me think of these plastic cutouts we used to put on the windows that didn't require any glue... they would just stick to the glass

I would love to have this myself

ferm LIVING has some amazing very modern wallpapers.

But we're all bound to hate it again in a few years.
