Although invented in China in about 200BC, the earliest wallpaper was found on the beams of the Lodge of Christ's College in Cambridge and dates from 1509. From these modest beginings wallpaper evolved through the lavish designs of the 18th century to the computer generated designs of the 20 century. Wallpaper has proved to be a most durable fashion suitable for setting the style and mood of any room.
