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.

There is of course much more to see and I truly invite you to come and see for yourself.

The idea was to create a special place, a wallpaper paradise and I do believe we have succeeded.

Feel free to contact us anytime if you are looking for some wallcoverings and inspiration for all your projects.

 

 

 

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.

Check it out.

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.
