Description

Florence Broadhurst

In a volume as captivating as its subject, Florence Broadhurst paints an unforgettable portrait of a woman ahead of her time. To this day, mystery shrouds her myriad personae (starlet, couturier, painter) as well as her unsolved murder. One thing, however, is certain: Broadhurst's place in the history of interior decor. Recognized worldwide for her groundbreaking wallpaper patterns, this enigmatic Australian left behind a trove of exquisite work, brilliantly displayed here in the first-ever authorized biography of the design icon. Broadhurst's wallpapers—out of circulation for nearly 20 years—are just now being restored and sold globally to much fanfare. This amazing package showcases more than 100 never-before-published patterns and popular prints, such as those owned by Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and Carly Simon, alongside a fascinating murder mystery.
