Calico Wallpaper X Pierre Frey

Calico Wallpaper is the result of the creative union, in 2013, of American couple Rachel and Nicholas. Their custom wallpaper company combines artisanal methods from the decorative arts (such as marbling) with innovative digital technologies.

They work with world-renowned designers and architects on residential and hospitality projects. Calico Walpaper’s creations have been exhibited at the London Design Festival, the Salone del Mobile in Milzn, and the Smithsonian Design Museum. They have also secured a place in the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt.

For the first time, the duo is stepping out of their chosen field and transposing their poetic universe to Pierre Frey furniture.

The concept

For the TASSARA line, composed of a sofa, an armchair, a bench and a coffee table, the Calico Wallpaper design duo explores the beauty of the stone mosaic work they discovered in the Italian town of the same name. Like the different shapes and shades of each of the stones that make up the paving, each piece of furniture in the TASSARA line has its own aesthetic that blends harmoniously with the rest of the collection.

The rough edges of the stone slabs, whose face is polished by time, are transformed by the drawings of Rachel and Nicholas and under the fingers of the Pierre Frey craftsmen, into soft organic and enveloping forms, more appropriate for furniture. Asymmetry reigns supreme through an ode to comfort.
