Wallpaper of the Future

4 Jan

Over the extended holiday weekend I went to the National Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. The exhibit displays innovative design prototypes addressing a multitude of human and environmental problems. I saw some very inspiring creations; wall-coverings from a New York-based company, Trove, stood out. 

Apparently in the current wallcoverings market, environmentally friendly examples are seriously lacking, and most papers are made with poisonous inks and vinyls. Trove’s products are recyclable, use nontoxic and archival inks, and have a wax-based coating that is washable and durable. All papers are printed to the specific wall height to eliminate waste. I love how the beautiful and delicate designs incorporate natural elements such as birds, butterflies, trees, flowers, jellyfish, and ocean waves. I want!
