Admiring lately: wallpaper by
Fayce Textiles, hand-drawn by illustrator turned designer Kim Rosen, then screen-printed at her studio in Easthampton, Massachusetts. According to the company website: “Each pattern is inspired by Kim’s New England surroundings: old factory facades, markings found on weathered wood and rocks along the coast, old building methods and materials such as plaster and lath and shapes found in the vast farmlands.” Catch her at Field & Supply this weekend; for now, here’s a look at the collection.
Above: The Fayce Wallpaper Collection is available in eight patterns and 16 colorways (all made with earth-friendly inks), with names evocative of natural New England (Phragmites and Pines), and old-world New England (Pleat and Lapel). Shown here: the Pleat Wallpaper in Cream ($65 per yard; most are sold at a minimum of five yards). The inspiration: “Whether pressed for sharpness or kept soft with rounded folds, pleats provide a freedom of movement in any article of clothing. The movement and texture is playful with hints of an aristocratic flair.” Above: Lapel Wallpaper ($65 per yard), shown here in Muted Teal, is “inspired by the construction of a bespoke suit: Notched, peaked, double-breasted, or pointed, the lapel adds sophistication to any structured garment.” It’s also available in Camel and Navy. Above: On the finely-drawn Tailor Grasscloth Wallpaper ($135 per yard), shown here in Charcoal: “Inspired by besom or jetted pockets found on tailored suits, this modern and classic striped pattern is dashing and handsome. The intricate, charcoal drawn lines are reminiscent of tailor’s chalk on fine Italian wool.” Above: Dash Grasscloth Wallpaper ($135 per yard), shown here in Dark Teal and hand-drawn on paper-backed woven sisal, is “inspired by objects and markings found in nature,” with a “modern/rustic and slightly primitive aesthetic.” Above: Tailor Wallpaper ($65 per yard) in Black and White. Above: The intricate detail of the Deco Grasscloth Wallpaper ($135 per yard), shown here in Charcoal, is “derived from details found on historic buildings and factory facades.” Above: Evocative of “summer days, a soft breeze through open windows and passenger seat daydreams”: Phragmites Wallpaper ($65 per yard) is a available in Light Gray (shown), Antique Rose, and Ochre. Above: Lapel Wallpaper in Camel ($65 per yard). Above: Fayce’s Flow Wallpaper ($135 per yard), “inspired by waves and the linear effects they have on coastal stone,” is available on grasscloth or linen. Above: Pines Wallpaper ($65 per yard), shown here in Midnight, is reminiscent of cold New England: “mountain views with pine trees in the distance and cool winter days spent by a fire.” It’s also available in Charcoal on metallic silver paper.
