FRIDAYfinds! - The Future of Wallpaper

                                                                                                         
I see a lot of new products every day!  From reps who bring their lines to the studio to
 my searches on the internet.  
But it's rare when I discover something that stops me in my tracks!

When was the last time you thought about wallpaper?
It's coming back in a big way but not like you remember...

Trove Chroma wallpaper
Have you ever seen anything like this?  
You are looking at the future of wallpaper!

This line is the brainchild of a pair of Chicago Institute of Art graduates, Randall Buck and Jee Levin.
They are turning the industry on its head with their innovative designs.

The Chroma wallpaper above, with a 6' by 12' repeat, is based on photographs that have been
enlarged and manipulated to the point of abstraction.  
These are actually photos of people on a busy New York street.  
The images are configured in a helix pattern reminiscent of DNA.
What makes the paper so intriguing is that it captures real-time human activity in a totally new way.
 The more you look at it the more you become connected to the imagery.

'EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
