Following up from a post from our AT:NY site, we thought we'd mention one more wallpaper maker, Cavern Wallpaper. Based out of Los Angeles and Brooklyn, the bi-coastal team of Carly Margolis and Ophir Tanz (both 24!) are drawing lots of attention in the design world. Even though it's getting more popular, a lot of people are still afraid of wallpaper, and I asked them their thoughts on that... "We think people still shy away from wallpaper because it conjures up images of their granmother's pea-green house with wall to wall carpeting and floral patterns adorning every wall in the house. There is a stigma attatched to it..." says Ophir. "We absolutely believe that our papers encourage people to revisit wallpaper as a viable and highly-desirable option and break down that stigma."
Cavern's debut line made its appearance at the recent ICFF show. The designs and patterns they showed evoke a sense of both the traditional and contemporary. Ophir explained that Cavern's line "represents a graceful, modernist take on natural environments." You can get Cavern's wallpaper and see their entire collection from their website, or through Show, or Walnut Wallpaper & Trim on Beverly Blvd (310) 932-9166. - Jonathan
