5 more wallpapers and fabrics from famous New Yorker cartoonist Saul Steinberg

Following yesterday’s post on Saul Steinberg’s wonderful “Views of Paris” wallpaper, which was designed in 1946 and still is available today, I started nosing around some more on Schumacher’s website. I found five more designs for wallpaper and/or fabrics all reproduced from the 1950s originals. Amazing! Gorgeous! Gonna cost you! I think the one above — “Trains” wallpaper by Saul Steinberg for Schumacher — also might have some appeal to our steampunk kin. Note, the Schumacher page for this print does not identify it as a Steinberg design. But, I found a reference to it in another listing. But now I want to know: What happened to “Horses”? Click thru to see 4 more beautiful designs.

“Opera” cotton table fabric, designed by Saul Steinberg, discovered in the archives as an original Greeff print.

“Aviary” wallpaper designed by Saul Steinberg and sold by Schumacher. This is also available in a black-on-white print.

“Opera” fabric, designed by Saul Steinberg, for Schumacher. Originally a Greeff print. Available in aqua (above) and natural colorways.

And this was hardest to find on the website — ironically. “New York New York” wallpaper and fabric, Saul Steinberg for Schumacher. It is not identified on the site as a Steinberg design, but I found a reference elsewhere on the web, and assume it to be true.

    My sisters and I inherited a large original print of Trains (printed on silk) that belonged to my mother. She bought it in the early 50s. Since only one sister can enjoy the print, I just recently bought a roll of wallpaper, 6 repeats per roll, and will frame them so we can all had an image.
    The wall paper is great quality, screen printed with vibrant blacks and colors. Schumacher doesn’t skimp on quality and worth every penny.
