First, we would like to tell you more about being nominated for this prestigious award. We are finalists in the Best Wallcovering Category of the NYC X Design Awards, which are hosted by Interior Design Magazine and ICFF. The finalists have been selected from participants in all of the NYC design shows that are happening during NY Design Week. The ceremony will be held at MoMA on May 20. Being included with such an incredible roster of talented designers is a huge honor in and of itself! We couldn't be happier.
Second, this year ICFF is moving up to the second floor of the Jacob K Javits Center in New York, which means that it is going to be even bigger and better, with more great designers to check out! We will be showing off our newly launched Graffito Collection, which has received rave reviews so far (keep reading!). We invite all of our New York clients, colleagues, and friends to stop by and visit us at Booth 122. Opening day is Sunday May 21 at 10 AM - please come by for a champagne toast and a Juju tote bag!
We were thrilled to see The Pearl from our new Graffito Collection gracing a full page of Interior Design Magazine this month, in their NYC Design Preview. We finally have samples of our new line cut and in stock. We will be shipping them to all of you asap! Thank you all for your patience while we were working to get them all cut.
We're so jazzed to finally, and officially, reveal the latest Juju Papers collection, Graffito.
In creating the four new designs that make up Graffito, Juju Papers designer Avery Thatcher was inspired by mark-making. Says Avery of the collection "Graffito explores the simple power of mark-making, tracing all the way back to those who scratched pictograms on walls, caves and bones. The patterns in the collection are united by their glyphic, graphic qualities: gestural, non-fussy abstractions of such varied inspirations as handwriting, a star-lit sky or masonry wall.”
Graffito is a beautiful compliment to past Juju collections, contrasting painterly lines, dots and dashes with sumptuous metallic inks used in the screen printing process. In fact, within the four new designs there are fifteen new colorways available! Let's meet them, shall we?
The Pearl: eccentrically-drawn and arrayed shapes abstract a stone mason’s hand-constructed wall. Four two-tone metallic colorways: Gold on Cream, Gold on Charcoal, Diamonds and Pearls on Cream, Gunmetal on Blush.
Pavlova: delicate overlapping curves, arcs and bends. Named for the Russian ballerina, famous for her sylphlike appearance, grace of movement and expressive nature. Three duo-tone metallic colorways: Gunmetal on Cream, Diamonds and Pearls on Cream, Gold on Cream.
Dusk: minutely-scaled squares and rectangles imprecisely scattered; they appear animated, as sparkling stars or glitter in a rock quarry. Two two-tone metallic colorways: Gold on Cream, Gold on Charcoal.
Bomba: improvisational composition of lively scribbles, dashes, zig zags, waves, and scrawling lines. Thatcher took her cues from handwritten signatures, the ultimate individual mark-making. Five two-tone metallic colorways: Gold on Cream, Gold on Charcoal, Diamonds and Pearls on Cream, Gunmetal on Navy, Gunmetal on Blush, Gunmetal on Cream.
With so many beautiful new choices it's hard to pick a favorite but we have no doubt that whichever you choose, it will be a perfect addition to your space!
Happy Spring from all of us at Juju Papers! We never get tired of seeing the way our amazing clients choose to paper their spaces and have noticed a definite trend: using wallpaper in tiny spaces for big impact.
Adding wallpaper to wainscoted walls means a little bit goes a LONG way. Often it only takes 1-2 rolls to paper an accent wall! Check out these creative applications where wallpaper is used to define woodwork accents.
Adding creative spaces is an affordable way to update your room because instead of buying all new decor, one element (like wallpaper) can update the look in a cohesive way. We hear this again and again from our customers.
We love how Trelawny Davis featured her creative use of Juju Papers in a blog post for Parachute Home. All it took was a few rolls of wallpaper to create a memorable bar and dining room that garners compliments from all of her guests.
West Elm loved Trelawny's post so much that they decided to highlight the story on the West Elm blog - and asked us to pop-up at our local Portland West Elm to introduce our wallpaper to their customers. Of course we said yes!We'll be at West Elm Portland at 1201 NW Couch St on Saturday, April 15 from 1-4. If you happen to be in the Portland area, please come by and visit us - we will have lots of wallpaper to show you!
We are so happy that spring is finally here! We can't wait to hear from our customers as they emerge with their creative ideas for Spring and Summer. We can't wait to help you bring your ideas to life!
Feeling inspired? We thought so!
We at Juju Papers would like to take a moment to wish you and yours a very happy holiday season! We've also been up to some pretty cool stuff of late and wanted to share that too ...
We're overjoyed to have gotten some recent love from Domino Magazine! One of our fave design magazines, they featured a full page of Juju Papers Pascal in Gold on Cream in their Winter 2016 issue. We love how they used Pascal as a backdrop for styling your unconventional closet.
Juju Papers was recently named as a Morpholio Board Product of the Year 2017 and we couldn't be more thrilled. Says Morpholio, "These products defy the notion of icon in space and seek to merge people with their surroundings in new ways. Their materials and textures evoke the natural, a spirit of wellbeing and even whimsy. And, as always, we are interested in designs that use technology and forward thinking to address impact on the environment,” says Anna Kenoff, Morpholio Co-Creator. We are honored that Morpholio included Juju Papers in their awards which includes some seriously great company. More here.
We're also very honored to have been included in The Next Precedent, a fundraiser for Girls, Inc. that was organized by Spartan Shop. Girls, Inc. is an amazing non-profit that works with girls aged 6-18 to provide the skills and confidence they'll need for an economically-independent future. Juju Papers donated wallpaper to the silent auction event which ended up raising over $10,000 for Girls, Inc.! We couldn't be happier.
As the holidays and end of the year approach, we wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you, our amazing clients and customers, for a great year! To further show our thanks, we're currently offering up to 40% off on close-out dye lots as we make room for 2017 inventory. Do you have a project in mind? Drop us a line to see if we have a leftover dye lot for you!
*Designers, closeout dye lot prices cannot be combined with other trade discounts. These are final closeout prices. No retroactive closeout prices are available on previously purchased wallpaper.
Here at Juju Papers we work hard to create beautiful, bespoke wall coverings to enliven homes and commercial spaces alike so it means a lot to us whenever we're recognized. And boy have we been recognized lately! Domino Magazine, Archello, Portland Monthly Magazine and Oregon Home have all featured Juju Papers recently and we're truly honored.
First up, Domino Magazine featured A Beautiful Mess blogger Elsie Larson's installation of Sisters of the Sun in her foyer. We absolutely love what she did with this space and are so happy to be featured in her home and Domino!
We also want to thank Portland Monthly for featuring our collaborative Barn Owls and Hollyhocks pattern in their recent design annual in which they recount the touching story of artist Carson Ellis' inspiration for the fanciful design.
Last, but certainly not least, Oregon Home included Indian Summer in their round-up of notable modern design elements that will help achieve a mid-century modern feel. We love their picks and agree that Indian Summer is a perfect backdrop.
We were also thrilled to present Juju Papers at Dutch Design Week in a booth curated by Design Milk along design stars Revolution Design House, Matthew Mccormick (we are DYING over those Halo lights!), Willow and Stump, and Barter.
