Calico Wallpaper Introduces Tapestry, A New Mosaic Inspired Wallpaper Collection
Paying Homage to the Iconic Surrealist Antoni Gaudí
New York, NY (November 15, 2023) — Calico Wallpaper is pleased to present Tapestry, a new collection that draws inspiration from the mosaic masterpieces of Spanish architect and designer, Antoni Gaudí. Designed in-house by Rachel Cope, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Calico Wallpaper, the collection pays homage to the captivating unpredictability found in nature.
Tapestry employs a wax resist technique, where wax is artfully applied, followed by a wash of pigment. Evocative of shattered tile shards, the resulting patterns burst into vibrant waves of color. To add a touch of glamour and sophistication, Rachel Cope interspersed metallic lines throughout the pattern, transforming each design into a standout work of art.
“The narrative of this collection resonates with the charm of the unconventional, by weaving intricate shapes into a visually delightful tapestry," notes Rachel Cope, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Calico Wallpaper. “The result is meant to reflect the dynamic beauty of mosaic dreamscapes.”
Tapestry is available in eight colorways, Enigma, Glisten, Luminary, Luster, Opulence, Sparkle, Spectrum, and Tranquil, each meant to evoke a unique formation. As with all Calico Wallpaper collections, Tapestry 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. Tapestry will be available for purchase through Calico Wallpaper and samples can be ordered at www.calicowallpaper.com.
