DwellStudio

 

York Wallcoverings is pleased to announce their most recent collaboration with modern mix masters DwellStudio.
Smart, playful and au courant, this sophisticated medley of animal, vegetable, and mineral print offerings are much more than wallpaper; they personify the effortless flair of individual style.

Esher

Pattern Esher is at play in the field of physics; alive with dimensionality. This is mad science at its stylish finest. Balanced by subtle monochromatic tonality, it creates the look of a texture; or is it a geometric pattern? What do you see, besides beauty?

 

Oaxaca

Sophisticated and sublimely unique, Otomi-inspired folk pattern Oaxaca is reimagined in lofty silhouette. Created in our exclusive Sculpted Surface process, which mimics the look of an artisanal hand painting, it honors tradition by its reinvention for modern spaces.

 

Medici Marble

The architecture of classical design is inspired by the cool sophistication inherent in marble. Pattern Medici Marble incorporates the elevated status of this iconic sculptural cornerstone and redefines it as contemporary lux in unexpected color combined with matte metallic.

 

Plume

With a train of tail feathers draped across colorfully blooming branches, this bold flock of hens and peacocks acts as an anchor to a saturated ground of marvelously fresh color. Pattern Plume does what great design should; reinvent and reinterpret fearlessly.

DwellStudio design is an unexpected blend of style and personality which represents the modern signature of a life well lived. Find them at retailers across the country. www.yorkwall.com
