Embrace these new wallcoverings with playful spins by four Southeastern makers: E.Lamb Studio, Tipsi, Ricci Studio and David Quarles IV.
E.Lamb Studio Delights With Charm + Whimsy
Atlanta artist-turned-product designer Elizabeth Lamb’s latest release, Secret Garden, reveals six winsome wallpapers that highlight her painterly hand. Swan Dance delights with fanciful swirls while Painted Tile combines charming animals with clovers. Skewing more subdued is Georgia Stripe, with climbing vines and petite scallops, contrasting Checkerboard’s abstract geometry. Lastly, Spring Leaves emphasizes hand-sketched line work as Painted Vines teems with scrolling botanicals.

Tipsi Channels The Nostalgic Memories Of Travel
Wallpapers join complementary cotton-linen textiles for Tipsi, a high-voltage debut by Atlanta designer Jenna Buck Gross. To capture the same joie de vivre as her residential and boutique commercial portfolio, the Colordrunk Designs principal looked to her beloved grandparents as her muse. The collection’s groovy geometrics channel nostalgic memories while chinoiserie influences reflect the matriarch’s love of far-flung travel. Through joyful hues like hot pink and chartreuse, the six patterns run the gamut from swinging 1960s florals to fretwork stripes.

Ricci Studio Embraces The Beauty Of Nature
A duo of luxurious wallcoverings from the Durham atelier of Liane Ricci translates the artist’s creative concepts boldly. The metallic silk design, Bosco, imparts the sensation of being enveloped by a dense and fanciful forest while her Plank wallpaper, in eight colorways, discerns the simple beauty of plywood, embracing the gracefulness of wood grain.
