Inspired by a Year in Paris: Wayne Pate’s New Fabric and Wallpaper Collection from Studio Four NYC

April 11, 2022

Artist Wayne Pate and his family had plans to relocate from NYC for New Zealand, where his wife, fashion designer Rebecca Taylor, is from. But before making that leap, the couple and their three kids spent a year living in Paris, starting in the summer of 2018. It was a heady, productive time for Wayne, who filled his sketchbooks—and delighted his fans on Instagram (@waynepate)—with his outpouring.

Stacy Waggoner, owner of Studio Four NYC, was a follower of Wayne’s who saw an opportunity. Having worked with him on his first collection of fabric and wallpapers—see Bloomsbury in Brooklyn—she proposed a new collaboration. The result is Paris Elemental, fabric and wallpaper designs from Wayne’s French sabbatical. Come see.

The showcase was supposed to be temporary, but the patterns were such a hit that the bistro has kept them in place.
