Joel and Erika were in NYC last week for ICFF and came back toting lots of company and product literature. Of course this meant I immediately had to go check out all of their websites to see what else they do. These are just a few…
Black Crow Studios is a custom wallpaper company that specializes in large scale wallpapers. I think both installation shots show what an impact this type of work can have- where the boundaries of wallpaper and art have become blurred.
Rollout also produces a lot of large scale wallpapers and their custom installation portfolio is quite thorough. This is an interesting installation piece from a lottery house in Canada. The writing is a poem by E.E. Cummings and I love that it appears as though there is writing on the back side as well. The room is meant to be relaxing and a little romantic and I think it fits.
Moving right along…
Lindsay Alker has been designing fabrics for big names for over 20 years but just opened up a studio under her own name. As someone with a textile background I have a huge respect for those who hand screen or block print their stuff… Lindsay Alker does both. As a self professed William Morris junkie she stays true to traditional printing methods. The first image is a more traditional wallpaper and the second is of coordinating fabrics.
Miss Print is another firm that hand prints everything and they are a very willing to create custom colors, scales, and patterns for the client. The two patterns above have a very Eames-esque vibe but the one below reminds me of something between Lotta Jansdotter and Orla Kiely.
In case you’re having a hard time committing to a wallpaper, I love that Miss Print also offers a wall decal version of this print.
