Scalamandré



This print is so fabulous! Based out of Hauppauge, New York, Scalamandré manufactures beautiful fabrics, trimmings, wall-coverings, furnishings and accessories.  Franco Scalamandré (1898, Italy - 1988, New York) was co-founder of Scalamandré Inc.  Fun fact: when Jacqueline Kennedy redecorrated The White House she required the reproduction of a magnificent 19th century silk.  She commissioned Franco Scalamandré for the task. source 

Today, the company is praised around the world for its quality, taste and style and can be found in just about every major design and home decor publication. Fun fact: this zebra print premiered in 1930s New York at Gino's restaurant on Lexington Avenue. Sadly Gino's closed its doors in 2010, but the restaurant's signature zebra print wallpaper lives on in chic homes and Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums. source
