Calico Wallpaper

Calico Wallpaper create unique, immersive and dreamy bespoke wallpapers, which due to their craftsmanship has become a work of art in itself, bringing character, imagination and identity to any room, space or environment. Founded by Rachel and Nick Cope and based in Brooklyn, New York, the Calico team have an ethereal eye for detail which is where they believe innovation begins, and they are continuously looking to explore the expressive possibilities of living space. They have spent years researching, exploring and experimenting within the various disciplines of paper marbling, learning and developing techniques from around the world.

Calico’s inaugural collection exhibits Japanese and Turkish marbling techniques with elements of Suminagashi and Ebru arts. As their collections develop and grow they have continued to build on these marbling traditions while introducing their own experimental techniques, materials and technology. Calico have experimented a lot with gradients, metallics and woven natural fibres on a variety of projects. More recently they have been able to work with groundbreaking NASA telescope imagery to produce constellation portrait prints, patterns and bespoke artwork for a wallpaper collection titled ‘Inverted Spaces’ in collaboration with Amsterdam’s BCXSY concept design studio.

‘It is our expansion of traditional practices that makes Calico Wallpaper truly unique. By drawing on the past, present and future, we create something entirely new.’

Calico have collaborated on countless projects which have seen them shift their attention from their staple wallpaper designs to transform and translate them onto different materials for a variety of channels such as ceramics, fabrics, textiles and packaging.

Art extends beyond the frame which was an initial inspiration for Calico. Through their exploration with re-appropriation of traditional art forms, and the digital enlargement of unique, handmade patterns, it came to Calico’s attention that they could create custom fit, non-repeating wall murals and immersive environments.

‘We work to blend the beauty, play and abstractions of art with the functional utility of design, thereby creating a product that inspires and invigorates the backdrops of our lives.’

‘The details are details. They make the product. The connections, the connections, the connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life.’ — Charles Eames
