There’s décor I like, and then there’s décor I can’t. stop. thinking. about. Every week I showcase items the team is currently obsessing over, aka “Funk favorites.” There’s an understated elegance to Calico wallpaper. Their tailored designs are one-of-a-kind, and high on my wish list.
This Brooklyn-based atelier sports globe-hopping technical influence, having studied Japanese and Turkish styles of paper marbling. Their landmark wallpapers are subdivided into eight distinct genres: cirrus, satori, fragments,inverted spaces, brasscloth, willow, aurora, and their crisp Calico collection. Burnished surfaces, ombre dyes, and lightning strikes of gold leaf all coalesce into a body of work that effortlessly enhances all spaces. Some of their products are hand-painted, all are extraordinary. Calico finds inspiration in all things: the rippling of water, the texture of woven grass, and the delicate gold striations of kintsukuroi pottery. Tell me, which of their wallpapers you’d love to see in your home?
