The go-to shop for interior designers and set decorators for TV, film and theatre for over 65 years, Secondhand Rose carries over 5,000 vintage wallpapers spanning an entire century and sources them from some of the most obscure places on the planet.
Damasks, flocks, geometrics, velvets, metallics, chinoiserie, faux finishes, florals, grasscloths - you name it, Second Hand Rose carries it. With her remarkable collection of vintage papers dating between 1870-1970, owner Suzanne Lipschutz has a knack for sniffing out the most unique and exotic wall coverings from all around the world. To step foot inside this store feels like landing smack-dab in the middle of a splashy Disney musical number, with their knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff happy to unfurl stunning roll after roll and flip you through the patterned pages of inventory to help you find the perfect paper.
Their newly updated website, www.secondhandrose.com, impressively lists all large quantity stock for purchase, but you will have to visit the store’s Manhattan location to see rolls of smaller quantities. Secondhand Rose serves both trade professionals and regular retail, so pop in and say hello or call to make an appointment to see this charming and extensive collection.
