Erik Gutter was here!

Hi again,


By now I guess that all of you dear readers have heard about the new creative outlet of Rick Vintage NLXL.LAB.

Well, one of the associated designers has visited our WALPA store in Tokyo and took the time to pose in front of his own design (off course).

Check out Erik awesome Greenhouse Wallpaper at WALPA.







A great weekend to everyone.



Saturday news from WALPA. Concrete Wallpaper by Tom Haga is a new brand on WALPA.

I hope you are all fine after the Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday double whammy.

Today is the time to relax and enjoy the family things and or friends.

How about some really nice Concrete Wallpaper from Tom Haga (Norway)?

There are up to 47 designs to choose from, which will be really tough as all of them are quite awesome.

Some designs are raw, some are colorful and some are quite soothing. Wallpaper is like music and should suits your moods.

Some may say that concrete makes up for cold interior, this is not true. Tom’s wallpaper is warm and lively.

Tom Haga comes from the photography and fashion world, he has an eye (pun intended) for design and has been photographing materials for a long time. This naturally drove him to a new media: wallpaper.


Enjoy the collection and remember to check WALPA!




















This doesn’t even scratch the surface, check out all the varieties and kinds of slabs of concrete on WALPA!!





New on WALPA: Dominique Picquier from France.

Hi there,

WALPA is proud to introduce you Dominique Picquier.

Dominique Picquier is a French creator installed right in the center of Paris in Le Marais.

She started to design fabrics and slowly expanded her body of work to fashion and home accessories. Her designs are subtle and turn around the themes of nature, trees, light and shadows. A reminder of her Madagascan roots.

Her work mixes vegetal and urban and brings the country to the city in a stylish mix of colors, lines and patterns.

Dominique has brought us a new line of wallpaper, check her Los Angeles series below:




















Dominique Picquier collection is limited to the above 4 designs at the moment but being a fountain of creativity you can expect many more designs in a close future.

The Flavor Paper new sample book is here.

The Flavor Paper new catalogue is here.
Flavor Paper from Brooklyn is all about fresh, groovy and funky wallpaper.
The company offers you mind bending patterns on psychedelic grounds. A mix of 70’s designs with a modern flair.
The range goes from Lenny Kravitz designed wallcoverings to scented cherries or banana or whatever you would like.
This wallpaper is not for everyone, again this is not the point.
Flavor Paper is exploring the boundaries of the wallpaper world and bringing something new to the game.

Because of the heavy use of mylar, reflective and glossy materials it is really difficult to see the true nature of the works.
Jon Sherman and his team print digitally and with silk screen.
Multiple screens and layers are necessary to achieve the truly original vibe.
You really miss out if you do not see the real thing, I really invite you to check it out in WALPA showrooms.
