“A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.”
Adorning the walls of the worlds best hotels and homes
We are fascinated by the work of design icons, illustrators and photographers from the past. For each collection we work with our artists to reach into the archives for inspiration and then set out to bridge the gap between past and present with designs that are not constrained by a specific time period or style but are rather connected by their ability to move us. These designs and their evocative power demonstrate how, by covering the walls of a room, you can transform the atmosphere entirely.
Inspired by the work of Slim Aarons, whom over the course of a career lasting half a century, Slim Aarons (1916-2006) portrayed high society, aristocracy, authors, artists, business icons, the celebrated and their milieu. In doing so, he captured a golden age of wealth, privilege, beauty and leisure that occurred alongside—but quite separate from—the cultural and political backdrop of the second half of the Twentieth Century.

We collaborate with artists from around the world to create beautiful wallpapers for your interior spaces.
Laura Berger is an artist based in Chicago. Centered around themes of interdependence and self-understanding, her images focus on figurative archetypes, intuitive color palettes and dreamlike minimalistic environments.
Ronelle Pienaar Jenkin
The narratives in Jenkin’s work centre on psychology – our thoughts, behaviour, ways of being in the world and the congruence between these things. Themes such as ridicule, humour, pride, sanctimony, obscenity and irreverence all feature strongly in her work and this interest is explored mainly through portrait and still life. Her preferred media and modes of expression include inks, watercolours and oils.
Yokohama based Satoshi Hashimoto is kicking it old-school cool. This Japanese illustrator has the touch of a mid-century master, creating a world of goatee sporting beatniks and cocktail swizzling cool guys brought up to the modern age. His figures, which feature in plenty of modern periodicals, are surrounded by the technological signs of our modern world: laptops, rooftop gardens and DJ turntables place these images decisively in the 21st century.
Nicole Levenberg is a South African textile designer and artist, educated at Central St Martins in London and now based in Johannesburg, where she creates her meticulously hand drawn designs. Acutely aware of the rich source of inspiration that the natural world provides, she has always drawn on this resource and its myriad patterns and colours to form the basis of her designs.
