Calico Wallpaper Introduces Lyric
A Bespoke Wallpaper Collection Shaped by a Fusion of Natural & Architectural Forms
New York, NY (September 13, 2023) — Calico Wallpaper is pleased to present Lyric, a new collection that draws inspiration from serene coastal towns. Designed in-house by Rachel Cope, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Calico Wallpaper, Lyric celebrates the sculpted shapes of clustered homes and the meandering streets that meld into mountain sides, all taking on a singular collective architecture.
Cope explores two perspectives at once through Lyric’s pattern, capturing the assemblage of forms seen from the sea, as well as, the glimpses of the endless blue horizon from the land. The design illustrates the interaction between these fluid architectural shapes and the crisp angles cast by the sun, creating ever-changing motifs that are at once geometric and random.
“I was thrilled to explore the unique shapes found within architectural formations in our latest wallpaper collection,” notes Rachel Cope, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Calico Wallpaper. “Lyric is rooted in this mythical place where habitations are arranged on hillsides as the land allows, where the soft hues of stone and the blue of the ocean seem like the only colors anyone needs, and everything is deepened by sun, salt and time.”
Lyric is available in seven colorways, Arcade, Archway, Atrium, Cupula, Dome, Doric, and Stoa, each meant to evoke a unique formation. As with all Calico Wallpaper collections, Lyric 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. Lyric is available for purchase through Calico Wallpaper and samples can be ordered at www.calicowallpaper.com.
