Not many wallpapers can claim iconic status, but if one gets the honor it undoubtedly goes to the Beverly Hills Hotel's massive banana-leaf print. The C.W. Stockwell design, copied from a Don Loper fabric, first adorned the hotel's walls in 1949: each leaf was hand cut and individually applied. Today the hallways boast 5½ miles of the distinctive pattern, which has since gone on to find glory on the set of The Golden Girls, a Friends episode, and countless fashion editorials.
