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.

WALPA Ginza Store and the Tokyo Designers Week report.

Hi there,

We are just back from Tokyo Designers Week and it was great.

We had the honor and and pleasure to have Rick Vintage, NLXL Creative Director and Designer here in Japan for a couple of days.

It has been really inspiring to meet such a famous designer and to see him interact will all the visitors.

He is a really lovable person and always create good vibes.

During those 2 days he has spent his time signing books, walls and notes.

He might also be in more than a hundred photos.

Here are a few images from the time we have spent together in our new WALPA Ginza store and at the fair.

I hope you will like it and make sure to come and check the new NLXL.LAB wallpaper and Piet Hein Eek designer stools.

 

First things first, our new WALPA Ginza Store.

And the next day we were off to the Tokyo Designers Week to check WALPA booth.

Hardly arrived and Rick was already in top gears, providing insightful stories and witty comments.

A real crowd pleaser.

Off course the whole booth was wallpapered, from the walls to the floor.

Our visitors really enjoyed walking on the walls or was it the floor?

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.
