The designs of NYC-based Trove are definitely not for wallflower decorators. View their bold strokes at the National Design Triennial at the Cooper Hewitt or confidently install one of their hand-painted wall coverings in your own home. After the jump: a full list of the line's eco-friendly features.
Trove recently made all of its original, whisper-like patterns available on REDEUX, a breathable, humidity-proof vinyl alternative that offers up to six LEED credit points. The PVC-free commercial-grade paper, with no off-gassing and low VOC emissions, is made of more than 31 percent post-consumer recycled content and non-toxic wax-based coatings. Each roll is printed per order—no warehousing or waste—and the company offers a reuse program that allows customers to return any excess material.
Shipping expenditures are low, too—the complete line is manufactured within a 100-mile radius of NYC, where the wall coverings are printed. Shown above is the newly released Sargasso pattern, named for the only sea in the world to be surrounded by ocean currents—another nod to the design team's commitment to raise awareness about the depletion of natural resources.
