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?

Throwback thursday (well friday).

This is already the end of the week.

This is almost Christmas.

2015 is at our doorstep.

So many things happened in the wallpaper and in WALPA worlds.

New collections, new stores, new medias and more.

Flipping through all the Wallpaper World editions (not in chronological order) it reminds me why the wallpaper world is so exciting. There is always something happening.

Come on take a trip down memory lane with us.


It all began here. Vol1 featuring the new NLXL collection: Remixed Wallpaper by Arthur Slenk.

An awesome collection based on a painstaking work.




Milton & King has been part of WALPA collection for a while now and they always have been really supportive to say the least.

We wanted to do something special for them to express our gratitude, so we started a 3 months Milton & King fair.




Each time the staff is asked to pick up a design and pose…the results are quite interesting.




Flavor Paper doesn’t need to be introduce. Their Warhol collection is just out of this world. Uber-coolness and a game changing collection.

Think art meets wallpaper.




Speaking of which, this year ICFF was a blast. Cannot wait for the next. Tons of new designs and nice people.

It is always a pleasure to be around people like that.

Keep on pushing the wallpaper boundaries.

On this page: Calico, Deborah Bowness and Hannah Nunn.

Love you all.




2014 marks the birth of WALLTZ our own wallpaper series.

Japanese designers bring their art to your wall.

Taylor made and totally unique.




And off course we have opened a new store…in Ginza (the Japanese equivalent of the Champs Elysees ou 5th Avenue).

Only the cream of the cream of the wallpaper world.

We are the first in the world to offer you the possibility to simulate and put you in the atmosphere with our dedicated room.

You can change in real time the wallpaper and experience it live.

And off course the new NLXL collection: Studio Job Archive Wallpaper.

I guess that all of you have heard of it.

The coverage has been crazy and all the medias went wild.

Let’s just say that wallpaper has made history. Wall coverings will never be the same.





Stay tuned for more exciting news and designs.

Take care.


Collection Spotlight: Arthur Slenk X NLXL Remixed wallpaper series.

Hi there,

I just wanted to remind you today of this incredible wallpaper series from NLXL and Arthur Slenk.

This collection adds not only pattern but texture, patina and a sense of history to the wall.


The creative process in itself has been painstakingly long. It all started about 20 years ago when Arthur found a box of discarded handwritten sheet music and immediately felt in love with inks stains and paper texture.

Arthur decided to deconstruct, cut them to pieces and finally rearrange them in new patterns.

The result is a wallpaper nothing short of amazing and challenging. This is definitely not your standard wallpaper but it has a strong personality and uniqueness.

I would recommend this series to music connoisseurs with a strong taste for all things vintage.

This wallpaper tells a story and will bring you in a world of texture, stains and ink.


Check this awesome collection out and if you are in Japan come and check the real thing in person at WALPA.


























New Collection from Milton & King will soon to be available in Japan through WALPA.
