1838 are a luxury brand manufacturing all wallpapers at their factory in Lancashire, England. The name evokes the deep roots of wallpaper innovation, for 1838 was the year the first wallpaper machine was pioneered, just a few miles away from the factory. A family owned business, 1838 Wallcoverings is led by brother and sister team James and Abigail Watson, whose family has over 4 generations of wallpaper printing experience.
At the heart of 1838 is a celebration of design and craftsmanship. Surface printing is a heritage technique and forms patterns that look as though they have been painted by hand. Digitally printed wallpapers offer unlimited colours and dramatic large scale designs.
Select patterns are adorned with lavish, velvety flocks, glistening beads, high sheen foils, contemporary metallics and textured inks, bringing them to life to form unique interiors.
