This just in from Eddie: "...just walked by the Elizabeth Bauer store on Greenwich Ave bet Charles and Perry and saw the pattern on a fabric on a loveseat that is in the display window."

I first saw the "Woods" pattern wallpaper a few years ago and thought it was going to be a flash in the pan. I was sooooo wrong...

It's gotten better with time and I feel obligated to say that it's become a new classic. It's taken on new colorways and many new ways of presenting itself as homeowners and shops have used it and mixed it to suit their style. There's still much more to do, but I recommend that all of you take a second (and maybe a first) look at this super contemporary wallpaper from this stuffy old English company, Cole & Son, Founded in 1873 by John Perry. The pics below are from a few house tours, a great shop on Lafayette Street (that I took today), and a favorite Shelter Mag. Enjoy all of this inspiration:

• Just put it up high: Monique and Richard's Apartment at a Glance

• Or just put it in the kitchen: Jane & Darko's Cozy Thicket
Finalist #4: Jane & Darko's Cozy Thicket

• Or go light on dark and frame it with molding! Pics via Odin NYC on Lafayette Street

• Or go DARK and COZY: Pic from Terramia via Living Etc

• Or go with my personal favorite: Purple from Cole & Son Wallpaper
