New Wallpaper World Magazine.

Hello there.

Our 10th Wallpaper World magazine is already out!

Featuring a groovy interview from  Flavor Paper owner and main designer Jon Sherman as well as a new concept: WALPA Doll Box.

We thought about the best way to recreate a brand atmosphere in a limited space and came up with the idea of the doll box.

This is real life dolls we are talking about (ladies from our staff play the dolls) .

We proudly bring you the Koziel Doll Box and the House of Hackney Doll Box.

Below each box are listed the products used for the photoshoot.

New WALPA store open in Isetan!

Hi there.

I come with some great news for our tokyoites friends!

A new WALPA store has open today.

Right in the heart of the busy area of Shinjuku, WALPA Isetan is located on the 5F of the department store.

The new store in Isetan mixes WALPA usual vibe with a high end flair.




Come over anytime (well at least between 10:30 and 20:00) to check out the new NLXL designs.

The Rulers designed by Mr&Ms Vintage themselves are a stunning example of what can be done when you have tons and tons of talent.







The original Scrapwood Wallpaper or where it all started.

It has been almost 4 years since it debut, all I can say is that it has not lost a once of its edge.

This still is a benchmark when it comes to realistic wallpaper. More than wallpaper a true design classic that will stay relevant for ever.

Buy it here.




A selection of some of our favorite designs are displayed on large panels to offer the optimal visibility.




Sneak peek at Koziel new design: Bricks and Moss.

This time again the French masters have outdone themselves.




Last one for the road.

Here is a larger photo of our shop.





Come over and check the new store out!



New designs from our friends NLXL: Biblioteca Wallpaper from Ekaterina Panikanova.

Happy Tuesday to you all!

NLXL is back at it again with an awesome new collection: Biblioteca Wallpaper.

This series is based on the work of the Russian artist Ekaterina Panikanova.

I think it is better to let the artist explain her work:

” I like working on old books: I like the way the wear and tear, underlining’s, notes and scribbling’s enable me to perceive the personalities of the people who have read them. Each book has a history, it is the story of its reader. ”

“The collection is a research that speaks of private memory consisting of free associations,

It is a project that brings my work within the home, within the family where everything started.”


Rick Vintage, NLXL founder and Head Director had the impossible task to transform Ekaterina’s art into wallpaper.

Here is what he has to say about the process:

“From the very first encounter with Ekaterina’s art we could not get it out of our heads. ”

“It was a difficult task for us to translate the 3D artwork to a wallpaper design.”

“The original artwork is so overwhelming, but after a long process we got it right.”

“The final product has the same impact as the original.”


Being lucky enough to have seen the real stuff at the Heimtextil fair I can say that the new collection is impressive and gorgeous.

NLXL has also  introduced a new concept, you can complete the “main” design with some columns of books , allowing you to arrange the pattern as you wish.


The collection will be available at WALPA very soon, until then enjoy the images below:




























I really hope that you are as excited as we are!

News from our company. Order made customs walls now available.

Hi there,

Our other shop, Kabegamiyahonpo, has launched a new made to order service.

Easy as pie,  just send us a nice image of photo that you would like us to print, tell us the required dimensions and we will do the rest.

The mural will come split in several panels, the number depending on the size, all you have to do then is to follow the steps.

The wallpaper is printed on a stable non-woven media, paste the wall not the paper and you do not need much space when installing it.

Each panel width is conveniently narrow and hanging the paper is easy as it can be.

For a perfect match the paper should be installed with an overlap (about 1cm) and then double cut.

Our staff is here to support you with all the steps and should you have any questions feel free to contact us anytime.

Below you can see a few examples.

Love you dog? How about making larger than life?

Here is a nice mural of Aretha chan (the company’s dog).

We can print it to perfectly fit on your sliding doors or doors.

Installing it then is really child’s play.




Want a feminine vibe? We have your back covered.

This mural with is pastel colors and round designs is sure to make up for a lovely interior.




Fake and trompe l’oeil patterns are really hot now, here is an example of how we have worked with a customer to integrate some nature to his interior.

We have printed a trunk to cover a concrete pillar and brought the forest to the living room.

Again this is just an example and the sky is the limit.

Have fun playing with new ideas and explore the endless possibilities.





Another view of the installation.
