Cara Fox, Citrus Garden, Josef Frank, Schumacher

From windows to walls, Josef Frank’s “Citrus Garden” has been a decorators’ darling for decades. Among the fanciful prints that Schumacher commissioned Swedish designer Josef Frank to create in 1947, “Citrus Garden” became a decorator’s darling, so much so that interior designers began backing the fabric so they could cover walls with it. In 2017, Schumacher responded with wall-ready papers that coordinate with select Frank prints, taking them far beyond window dressing.
