Brooklyn-based mostly Calico Wallpaper started haphazardly through the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy when Rachel Mosler and Nick Cope have been stranded of their loft and out of labor for a month. As an alternative of sitting round, Mosler obtained impressed to marbleize paper. Tons of of prototype swatches later, they determined to increase them and switch them into wallpaper. At present, they’re providing two designs that every are available three shade methods: Wabi and Lunaris.
The duo partnered with Dieu Donné to create a one hundred% cotton fiber paper that allowed them to make the most important marbled papers in existence. These giant scale originals acquired into Cope’s palms the place he then tailored the patterns to turn into wallpaper (he can adapt them to suit any wall measurement).
Wabi’s (above and under) origins start in historic east landscapes, evoking the sensation of water flowing over pebbles.

Lunaris, filled with tranquility, was impressed by NASA pictures of moonscapes and uninhabited area.
