New WALPA Wallpaper Museum and New Office.

Hi folks,

 

We just had an incredibly busy and awesome time.

After sweating blood and tears everything is ready, the opening party has been a huge success and people from all over Japan have been visiting us.

As you can imagine we have gone berserk and wallpapered absolutely everything. There is no surface and wall left unharmed.

We have gone all the way to create something really unique and well,…, over the top!

Nothing is going to stop us on our way to become the most unique wallpaper store in the world.

I cannot disclose any details yet but you can expect great things from WALPA in a really close future.

 

Meanwhile enjoy the tour and let me show you around the new store and office.

Starting from the store.

NLXL party

WALPA had the immense pleasure to host a party to celebrate for NLXL new Collection Double Face and its EDIDA Awards in the wallcovering category.

I know that both of them are quite old story but this was a pleasure to meet again.

Rick and Esther have been the perfect guests (as always) .

The whole evening has been great fun and a nice opportunity for people to get to know the designers.

After a few interviews for the Japanese press (I am not allowed to say more at this point and you will know more as soon as the papers are out) we had a nice and relaxing evening.

WALPA in Milan

Hi wallpaper lovers.

WALPA was in Milan for the Salone del Mobile and has big news for you.

NLXL, the infamous Scrapwood Wallpaper designers has chose to catch the chance to introduce their new collections Obsession by Daniel Rozensztroch from Merci and Addiction by Paola Navone.

What can be said about Milan that has not been said yet?

The city is gorgeous, the people are beautiful and the food is exquisite.

Here are few snapshots.

NLXL new collections are blurring the lines between art and wallpaper.

Double Face refers to the dualism presents at the core of the exhibition.

Both collections are complementary and echo together to create a new concept in the wallpaper world.

You can tell that there is a lot of love (and off course work)  involved in the creative process of these designs.

 

The first collection “Addiction” is all about Paola Navone addiction to blue.

She has been using this color all along her career and the color is now her signature.

Bold, arty and challenging this series of wallpaper is a really pleasure for all the designs connoisseurs.

A real treat for this Summer.

On the other side of the coin, Daniel’s collection is all about the detail and realism.

You literally have to touch the wallpaper just to make sure that this is not a real hanger!

Obsession refers to Daniel compulsive way of collecting objects of all kinds.

The series is easier on the eye and has proved to be a real crowd pleaser.

It does help that Daniel is one of the most charming and down to hearth person in the business.

Enjoy his collection below:

The highlight of the whole week was the Elle Decor International Awards 2015.

Being awesome as they are our good friends from NLXL won the award in the Wallcoverings category with their Archive Collection by Studio Job.

This is not the first time but seing them taking another award home is really satisfactory.

Their dedication to great designs, challenging wallpaper and being themselves is paying off.

It is always satisfactory to see people like Rick and his team succeed.

I trust them to keep pushing the boundaries and bring more “Designs” into the wallpaper world.

Well done Rick.

See you again soon Milan.

 

All the collections are available in our WALPA stores.

 

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.

As always the design with NLXL is top notch, even the boxes are impressive.

The detail is everything and it shows in the packaging of the Scrapwood Wallpaper 2 series.

The designs really have to be seen hanged, samples definitely do not do justice to the wallpaper.
