: I'm looking for a source of historic reproduction linoleum in patterns from the 1920s and 30s. Forbo Industries comes close, but their patterns tend to be abstract marbelized-style designs. I'm most interested in the bold, large-scale geometric designs that you sometimes find buried under layers of vinyl tile in old kitchens.
I am sure that by now you must have found a source for antique linoleum from the 1920's and 30's. I have experience dealing with Second Hand Rose in Manhattan,NYC. They are a wonderful source for antique linoleum rugs, which really are enamelled rugs, not true linoleum. They do have some true linoleum. What I think you are referring to are the thick geometric designs that have jute backing. vinyl and tile. Second Hand Rose 212-393-9002
