“For centuries, wallpaper has been such an effective and versatile way to transform our living environments," said New York-based interior designer Sara Story. “Its impact is so easily scaled up or down, and it has the power to bring drama, color, pattern and texture to a space.”
Ranging in price from $150 - $200 per roll, the collection is comprised of five patterns which are contemporary interpretations of Asian motifs, each in four colorways: celadon, ming, black and white and pop. It will be represented by Holland & Sherry and available in New York, Paris, London, Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago.
“Because of my background and travels, I am very much influenced by Asian design in my work and I wanted this first line to have an Asian flavor that truly reflects who I am as a designer,” said Story. “I began with a set of my favorite Asian motifs from over the years and reinterpreted them into something that my clients and a contemporary audience can relate to.”
Here’s a look at the debut collection:
The hatch pattern stems from a motif that Story often sketches, based on a fabric she discovered while traveling in Thailand. This design is composed of dynamic line weights, creating an edgy feel.
The Kimono pattern is inspired by Story’s own antique kimono robe.
The Chinese dragon is a symbol of auspicious power, strength and good luck. This design incorporates contemporary orbs, Story’s reinterpretation of Asian clouds and other medallions seen in traditional Asian patterns.
The bamboo pattern is an abstract take on bamboo, which in Asian culture symbolizes strength, and the Screen design’s simple geometry reads differently in each colorway and translates an ancient motif into a contemporary design.
