Scale Something Up: Artisanal Wallpapers by Paper Paint Press
When interior designers don’t find something they want, they sometimes get inventive. Portland-based Jim Staicoff has created his own line of small batch wallpapers, because he “saw gaps in the market.” Staicoff recently founded Paper Paint Press, so designers like him could find “unexpected designs rendered in playful scales and striking colorways.”
Distinctive Patterns with a Modern Sensibility
With the help of three artists, Paper Paint Press offers distinctive collections that give a nod to traditional patterns yet simultaneously reinterpret tradition. The collections include Damasks by Amy Ruppel, Botanicals by Dardinelle Troen, and Tessellations by Stephanie Dyer. Artist Ruppel reenvisions damasks by adding whimsical animals in silhouette. Her stag damask offers deer heads and antlers in bilateral symmetry—instead of the standard ornamental fare. In the bedroom of an Aspen cabin or in the library of a Manhattan loft, this clever damask is both elegant and puckish.
Besides aesthetics, Paper Paint Press also pays attention to safety by using zero-VOC ink on Class A fire-rated paper. If you like the patterns, email the company for purchasing information: email@example.com.
