Paxton House

Situated on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders, Paxton House was built to the design of John Adam in 1758. It is a fine example of an 18th century Palladian mansion featuring a fine collection of Chippendale furniture and we are grateful to The Paxton Trust for giving us exclusive permission to reproduce in miniature the beautiful wallpapers used in the house.

The Paxton House designs are all available as 1:12th and 1:24th scale wallpaper, printed silk crêpe de chine and printed cotton.

Penelope’s Room

A replica of a ‘fine chints paper’ supplied by Chippendale and copied for Paxton House from fragments of a 1774 paper. The very fine furniture in the bedroom was furnished by Chippendale in matching fabric.

Ribbon Trellis, West Bedroom

At the time of the restoration of Paxton House in 1991, some fragments of early Victorian paper with crossed ribbons in buff and pale blue were discovered. This charming paper, with its delicate design, has been reproduced in the West bedroom.

Stripe and Spring, Alcove Bedroom

According to Chippendale’s bill for providing the fine furniture at Paxton House, he also supplied a ‘blue stripe and sprig’ wallpaper for the Alcove Bedroom and the present paper is a replica, copied from a fragment dating from 1775.

Morning Room

The oak wreaths in this wallpaper reflect the design of the room’s white marble chimney piece – this is a familiar Regency pattern often found in the Drawing Rooms of Edinburgh’s New Town.
