Since its founding in 1797, Zuber & Cie wallpapers’ fame has spread far and wide, from King Louis Philippe awarding Jean Zuber the Legion of Honor in 1834 to Jackie Kennedy installing Zuber’s “Vues de l'Amérique du Nord” in the White House. According toFrance Today,the company still uses the same antique woodblocks, the same paint formulas, and the same time-honored processes to create its stunning wallpapers as it did in Jean Zuber’s time.
Gorgeous displays of friezes, borders, ceiling roses and architectural trompe l’oeil, have been photographed forZuberin homes in the United States, France, and the United Kingdom.
