Maximum wall drama!Apr 01, 2019

We're so excited about this... This week we're releasing seven new wallcovering collections: Two from Hooked On Walls and four by Arte Walls as well as new additions to their Contract range. Below is a quick run through of the Arte collections. On Wednesday I will introduce you to Hooked On Wall's offerings.

Of course we have to start with Arte's extraordinary collaboration with Moooi - Extinct Animals. This collection has been on the horizon for some time and we're thrilled with the results. It's whimsical, fantastical and full of wonder. Each pattern is inspired by creatures from their 'Museum of Extinct Animals' and feature striking combinations of colours and patterns reminiscent of fur, plumage or skin. Read the brochure HERE. See the collection page HERE.

The Paleo collection is inspired by the eponymous Native American peoples and their motifs. We love the innovative way Arte has created the patterns, using raised dots. Here's a close up...

The collection also includes a stunning silk-look design Latus...

The Vanguard collection also works a theme with great aplomb. Arte have looked to early modernist movements like Bauhaus and Orphism for inspiration. The results are stunning with a bold painterly geomteric design (think Sonya Delaunay - Expressionist), two smaller geometrics (Modernist and Tessella), two folded paper designs (Mira and Plex) and a dynamic stripe (Traverse). See the brochure HERE. Visit the collection page HERE.

The Atelier collection shows off Arte's technical prowess as they recreate the look and feel of hand-stitched leather, complete with its natural nuances and irregularities. It really does look like pieced-leather patchwork. There are several plain options with lovely subtle colour differences (Alma and Campo). They dial up the glamour with Plaza and Cosma. Finally there's Odeon which plays with contrasting colour and curves. HERE is the Brochure. Click HERE to go to the collection.

Finally Arte have added four new designs to their Contract range: Cayenne, Corwall, Orion and Stone Rhythm. Like all of their Contract series these wallcoverings are designed to withstand the rigors of a commercial environment but look amazing while doing it!
