Wall & Deco has just released a new video highlighting some fantastic new designs from their 2013 collection. Check it out!
KnollTextiles has a history of cool collaborations with other companies and designers like Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, and Abbott Miller from Pentagram, just to name a few. The latest to be added to this list is wallpaper company Trove.
Trove specializes in wallcoverings that contain “large scale photographic and impressionistic qualities that are mainly organic in nature.”
When Trove design duo Jee Levin and Randall Buck teamed up with Dorothy Cassonas, Creative Director of KnollTextiles, they created the Vivid Collection. The Vivid Collection for KnollTextiles includes three patterns in various colorways and each one has “a painterly expressionistic effect and large scale design” perfect for spaces that need an accent wall.

And in related wallpaper news, we’ve changed out the wallpaper in our small alcove near the front of the Vastu showroom! Stop by this weekend and check it out.
Wallpaper. Love it or hate it, you have to admit that we’re seeing a resurgence in its use. Whether you apply it all of the walls in a room or use it to create an accent wall, the wallpaper of today may surprise you.
Wallpaper manufacturers are making lots of changes that may just surprise you. Various textures, finishes and even digital printing can all find their way onto your wallpapered walls.
While we tend to keep our clients’ walls neutral, sometimes a space just screams for a large graphic wallpaper or maybe even the slightest shimmer of a metallic finish. Here are just a few of the ways our Vastu designers like to get wild with wallpaper.
A clear winner from HGTV’s Showhouse Showdown, based on all the calls we’ve already received, is the Spring Blossom Wallpaper Eric Kole used in his master bedroom. Sold in 4-roll sets, measuring a large 78.75″ W by 118″ L (that’s roughly 6.5 feet by 9 feet, 10 inches).
In using this specific graphic, Eric was evoking the cherry blossoms that DC is famous for and that people come from all over the world to see in the spring. It’s a great way to add interest to your walls without the use of paint and can definitely be an unexpected and fun design element.
While Spring Blossom wallpaper does come in its standard size, it can be scaled up or down to fit any wall in your space. For pricing on this and other products you saw in the “Loads of Layers vs. Less is More” episode on Showhouse Showdown, give us a call or visit us today!
Designer Abbott Miller’s Ink Collection is his second collection of wallcoverings for KnollTextiles. Each of the three wallcoverings, Drip, Drop and Run, feature the liquid movement of ink as a departure from a highly graphically designed collection.
Remember those wallpaper remnants we mentioned? Well, we had a client who purchased a couple feet of the Designers Guild Porden ‘Gold’ wallpaper and recovered her medicine cabinet. She loves the finished product and so do we. Take a look!
We finally had to part ways with our beloved “Deck the walls” holiday window display. We featured 5 stunning, gold wallpapers from Designers Guild and had a few customers ask if they could purchase some of wallpaper when the window display came down. Well, the answer is yes! We have one partial roll of each of the 5 Designers Guild wallpaper designs still available. We’ll be selling the partial rolls, measuring 20.5″ W by about 21′ L, for $75 per partial roll. These are a perfect buy for a small room or accent wall. We do have some even smaller remnant pieces available. Please contact us for details on those. Here’s a closer look at what we have…
