Summer Backdrop: Wall Coverings from Hand-Painted (and -Drawn and -Stitched) Designs

July 13, 2023

This just in: Paint co. Backdrop (which we first reported on shortly after they came on the scene; see Trend Alert: 3 New Direct-to-Consumer Companies Shaking Up the Paint Industry) is expanding to other, well, backdrops. Most recently? A collection of patterned wall coverings, designed (by hand) in the company’s DTLA studio and printed in Brooklyn.

Have a look at a few we like for an instant injection of color (also available via Backdrop’s new (ish) parent co., Schumacher).

Above: A glimpse at the design process. This is The Cloisters Panel Set, which is, according to the makers, “grandiose in scale. At 9’ x 15’, two panels of abstract geometries in a patinated plaster effect play with positive and negative space to bring bold architecture to the wall.” It’s available in Soft Blue, Soft Green, and Warm White.

Above: The appealingly named Rhinestone Cowboy is a nod to the show-stopping rhinestone “Nudie suit” by tailor Nudie Cohn, immortalized by the likes of Dolly Parton and Elton John. “In our own mid-scale floral interpretation, peony-like flowers are dotted with details and a simple cadent layout,” according to Backdrop. It’s designed from hand-done chain-stitch embroidery and available in rosy Poppy, Clean Blue, and Bright Yellow (shown).

Above: “Hand-painted ink washes fill striking circular forms that play with scale and gravity, creating a stripe effect at nearly 6’ tall,” according to Backdrop. The result is Hyperion, available in Off Black, Peach, and Bright Blue (shown).

Above: A play on quilts, Alexander is also designed from original paintings, which gives it “a light patina like a lovingly stitched heirloom.” Shown is the Red and Earthy Pink colorway; it’s also available in Dutch Green + Slate and Terracotta + Warm Peach.

Above: As part of their relationship with Schumacher, Backdrop also carries a selection of wall coverings outside the new collection, like the whimsical Butcher String design by Charlap Hyman & Herrero with Pilar Almon for Schumacher.
