Inspired by its 60-year history, fragrance brand Diptyque just released its very first wallpaper collection. Interestingly, when the company was first founded by Christiane Montadre-Gautrot, Yves Coueslant, and Desmond Knox-Leet, it produced upholstery textiles, so this new line marks Diptyque's return to its home decor roots.

According to Design Milk, the wallpaper designs come straight from Diptyque's archives and include sketches from the original founders. You'll even find some of these works of art in Paris's Museum of Decorative Arts.
