EMERALD ISLES VINYL WALLCOVERING
SPRING 2014

For centuries seafaring captains journeyed to the legendary South Pacific Emerald Isles where shiploads of textiles from India were exchanged for highly desired natural commodities. With Jim Thompson’s premier selection of vinyl wallcoverings we have searched the seas and sparkling shores of these islands for natural textures and hues to create this stunning collection. As always, our inspiration begins with our deep knowledge of naturally woven textiles. In creating wallcoverings we delight in achieving the same textures and effects found in slubby homespun linen or the sheen of pure silk. To further enhance the effect of these wallcoverings some have been embossed with metallic overlay. So rediscover the magic of faraway lands by including in your décor some of Jim Thompson’s wall coverings that are named for the Emerald Isles of the South China Sea.

All Emerald Isles wallcoverings are extra-washable and achieve Fire Class B-s1 rating certified by EC Declaration of Conformity: EN 15102:2007+A1:2011

With the texture of linen and a design created by pale washes of muted bands of color that fade in and out, one has the impression of viewing a seascape as the sun sets.
