Xanadu’s repeat wallpaper pattern are reminiscent of 18th century European palaces. Inspired by traditional Chinoiserie with a more modern western style. Popular in 18th century Europe, chinoiserie decorative arts were extremely fashionable. Also evocative of this time, was repeat pattern wallpaper. Xanadu’s motifs derive from these porcelain, silk and lacquerware objects of desire that were imported from China and Japan, as expressed in the collections Butterfly Valley, Countryside, Go on a Journey and Birds Twitter. Though the use of decorative iconography, such as Goldfish, Butterfly and Peacock, Xanadu plays with scale and repeat patterns as well as colour, to create a contemporary international collection that are in high demand and leave a lasting impression.
