In the mid 19th century, Nathaniel Hamlen sailed at age 21 from Long Wharf in Boston on the clipper ship Union to India and back, and later from San Francisco to Japan and China. He brought back a panorama of flowers and birds or 'auspicious chinoiserie' that decorated the Hamlen family dining room at Mainstone Farm on a hilltop in Wayland, Massachusetts for dinner parties and birthdays of several generations. While Nathaniel's idealized garden panels are now a unique legacy of museum quality originals... 

Only possible in this decade, fine art electronic imaging of the third industrial revolution inspired Dev Hamlen (Nat's great great grandson) to develop his family's antique flowers & birds as sustainable digital wall coverings and fabrics.

In 2019 and 2020, several new editions produced by Holly Alderman with Wallquest have been photographed and seen by millions around the world in news and social media -- Page Six, Daily Mail, Variety, Hollywood Reporter, ET Online, LA Times, Chicago Sun Times, Guardian. The wallpaper, fabrics, pillows and art find new audiences from Boston to Charleston SC to Palm Beach and San Jose, among others.
