During World War II, the wallpaper industry was dealt a serious setback. The War Production Board classified wallpaper as a non-essential commodity and greatly reduced the number of allowable styles, new patterns and sample books, and prohibited the use of metallic bronze and aluminum powders.
Manufacturers were required to use a lighter weight stock of paper which affected the overall quality of the wallpaper. Full production resumed in 1945 when the limits were removed and manufacturers increased production to keep pace with sky-rocketing consumer spending.
The years immediately following the war were a booming period

a matter of money. They had been bombed out of their previous
house, losing the rug along with lots of other items. They had
been unable to purchase a new rug, because there were simply none
