Florence Broadhurst...taking the US by storm!

Florence Broadhurst was born in Queensland, Australia in 1899. By the time of her death in 1977 she had lived in Australia, Asia and England, performed professionally on stage, been befriended by royalty, exhibited her paintings and started an internationally successful wallpaper company based on her own designs. She was considered to be years ahead of her time, complex, eccentric and talented.

Decades later the Florence Broadhurst designs are taking the US by storm! The designs are being featured through Kate Spade New York. In Australia, Signature Prints owns the rights to the Florence Broadhurst designs and they produce everything from her famous wallpapers to fabrics.
