The Egg’s sides and “wings” both cradle and conceal whoever is sitting in it, creating a sense of privacy that was particularly appealing to customers sitting in the public places like hotel lobbies etc. (Wilkinson P. (2013), Great Design).

Fruit, one of the earliest, is an arrangement of pomegranate, orange, lime, and peach tree branches, all bearing leaves, fruit, and flowers, It was strikingly different from Victorian wallpapers popular at the time because the pattern was treated in a flattened, stylized fashion, with the shading that most contemporary wallpaper designs look three dimensional, and set against a light background (Wilkinson P. (2013), Great Design).
