Florence Broadhurst History
Years ahead of her time, Florence Broadhurst created hundreds of beautiful hand screen printed wallpapers and textiles. These were unique and luxurious patterns with rich and vibrant colours, perfectly reflecting Florence’s flamboyant personality and style.
Born in rural Australia in 1899, Florence lived a life of mystery, eccentricity and fame. During the 1920’s Florence performed professionally on stage in Asia and India. Reinventing herself in England during the 1930’s, Florence started her internationally successful wallpaper company in Australia in 1959.
