A popular wallpaper brand has curated a collection of designs to reflect the culture of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted the ways in which we all live, work, and play due to stay-at-home orders put in place to flatten the curve and keep people safe. Now, taking design cues from this ever-changing world, York Wallcoverings curated a special collection of wallcoverings, appropriately coined the Now Box, to reflect these current societal shifts. 

York narrowed in on six defining trends: “Because Life Can be Noisy,” a collection of QuietWall Acoustical Wallcoverings to soundproof shared spaces in style; “A Clean Bill of Health,” a collection of bleach-scrubbable, high-performance wallpapers in line with CDC guidelines; “Education Station,” a collection of whimsical and clever designs for ad hoc classrooms; “Environmental Stewardship,” a collection of sustainable, organic-inspired coverings that bring natural elements in; “In Transition,” a collection of peel-and-stick offerings for quick space changes; and “Working From Home,” a collection of professional finishes for the improvised office. 

“The year 2020 is all about navigating an ever-changing world while sheltering in place, redefining space with a new set of priorities,” York writes of the curated designs. “Home has become a multifunctional dwelling, where work, play, child-rearing, education, entertainment, physical fitness, leisure, and quietude must co-exist as harmoniously as possible.” As the brand notes, “We no longer simply come home”—”we live here.”
