Wallpaper is making waves again. It was a top takeaway at ICFF -popping up on walls, inside cabinets and under glass. NeoCon also saw new collaborations launched as artisans draw inspiration from all kinds of places to create some amazing papers. Here are some of the new and notable finds:
UK designer, Tracy Kendall known for pushing paper’s limits doesn’t disappoint with these new intros.
The new Drape design plays with reality, is it real, is it fabric, is it paper – can I touch it, will it move? The answer of course is yes to all. Hung like wallpaper but as soft and organic as fabric, the perfect combination.
Because I am all about curtains and draperies; I LOVE this paper! It’s soo-phisticated 60’s !
Designed for a silver medal award winning garden at London’s Chelsea Flower show in 2011, the outdoor wallpaper puts together the most modern of materials with hand crafted workmanship producing a wallpaper which withstands the wind and rain, but still looks beautiful.
Schumacher reproduced from a cotton print by interior designer Michael Taylor in 1963, this graphic, feather-like pattern resembles brush strokes across a canvas, and is a wonderful example of mid-twentieth-century modern textile design. Now produced on a 48″ wide, non-woven wallcovering ground, it is printed in its original scale and striking black-on-white color.
This large scale, multihued hand printed wallcovering features a traditional Moroccan star pattern, which is derived from an elaborately tiled wall. It is paired with an allover design and Cadiz Mosaic Border to create a dramatic tiled effect on the wall.
Trove celebrates past queens by getting a glimpse at bygone royalty through the August pattern! August puts a unique spin on royalty by exploiting the anonymity of former queens from around the world. Past monarchs of Denmark, Japan, Greece, and more join together as a decaying collective -here on silver matte foil. Trove won the ICFF Editors Award for Wallcovering for their new Spring 2012 Collection, which includes this one-of-a-kind design
Trove moved onto Neocon and launched the Vivid collection with Knoll. Winning 2012 Best of NeoCon Silver, the Vivid collection is a study in painterly patterns, dynamic colors, and elegant movements. The patterns are each named for the unique gestures used to create them– Swerve, Sway and Swoosh.
