Calico Wallpaper Introduces Kaleidoscope
A Bespoke Wallpaper Collection Inspired by the Prismatic Landscapes of Paul Cézanne
New York, NY (June 2023) — Calico Wallpaper is pleased to present Kaleidoscope, a new collection that captures an illusive landscape, inspired by the drawings and watercolors of Paul Cézanne, one of the most influential artists in the history of modern painting, whose prismatic topography resembles the complex patterns that occur when looking through a kaleidoscope.
Kaleidoscope combines loose, evocative lines with expansive washes, creating an abstract patchwork of color across the wall. Touches of vibrant hues along with sweeping brushstrokes give the design a diaphanous quality – with hints of light and color resulting in a sense of perpetual motion.
“Kaleidoscope explores how a simple shift of perspective can capture the ever-changing nature of our surroundings,” notes Rachel Cope, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Calico Wallpaper. “The wallpaper delves into the elusive outlines of a dreamlike scenery highlighting the dynamic spark that is at the heart of all living things.”
Kaleidoscope is available in eight colorways, Adapt, Balance, Cascade, Emerge, Propel, Renew, Sustain, and Transform. As with all Calico Wallpaper collections, Kaleidoscope was born from original artwork. The Calico Wallpaper team employs advanced technologies to translate its designs into custom-fit murals that are tailored to a client’s project and space. Kaleidoscope is available for purchase through Calico Wallpaper, and samples can be ordered at www.calicowallpaper.com.
