FLASHBACK: How Does Calico Make Their Gorgeous Marbled Wallpaper?
Calico and its gorgeous marbled wallpaper has been warmly received by the design industry. The Calico wallpaper installed in Carrier & Company's room in the 2014 Kips Bay Show House made it sing, but I first wrote about Calico more than a year before that installation.
It's fascinating how Calico makes their stunning paper and you may wish to take a look back at how they do the marbling process. For Calico, it all started with Hurricane Sandy, but the art of marbleizing itself began in Japan around 825 CE.
I am seeing a related trend for marbleized home accessories too--both show houses in the Hamptons this summer featured them.
Now I can't wait to see what designers do with Calico's new ombre-like collection, Aurora, which Calico devised by experimenting with fabric-dying methods. Certainly Calico is one to watch!
