Linda Florence: Wallpaper printing for Shanghai / by Faye McNulty

I had the pleasure this week of supporting Linda complete a wallpaper commission for a retail space in Shanghai. A stunning process of layers of interlocking colours in golds and shimmering metallics - specifically designed for the colours and effects to work with the space's lighting design.

 I have worked with Linda for the past eight years, and seen her work first hand - an example of beautiful modern/traditional designs and imaginative uses of design in a installation context.

Here is a little bit more about Linda's work:

"Linda Florence produces bespoke hand printed wallpaper and installation artwork for public, commercial and private interiors.  Florence’s printing techniques incorporate a mixture of traditional and new technologies including silk screen-printing and laser cutting.

Florence draws inspiration from the materials, craft practice and historic and social context of the project site and builds a narrative for each project. Stories can play an important part in creating a sense of place, both as a design tool and a way to engage with everyone surrounding a project including clients, consultants and users."
