These 40 Fabrics and Wallcoverings Bring a Slew of Bold New Patterns and Textures

From domino-bedecked wall coverings and metallic duck-egg blue fabrics to paisley scattered wallpaper, these fabrics and wall coverings bring a slew of new bold patterns and textures. Richard Smith’s Ho Fun linen for Jim Thompson Fabrics comes in four colorways produced in Thailand, ranging from classic charcoal on cream to metallic duck-egg blue on natural. Lapu-Lapu from Élitis is a tactile wallpaper that is actually papier-mâché glued to a nonwoven backing. Arranged in a patchwork, the vegetable-dyed “tiles” have an ancient feel, with natural gradations, mottling, and an irresistible texture and dimensionality. To Concrete Cat‘s Matt Heide, the greatest limitation of marble was in its palette. He created Oracle—a blend of concrete, mineral pigments, and glass fiber that hints at the real stone’s veining and blotchy beauty but ups the ante with color combos like mint + peach. All products have also been featured in Interior Design’s recent Fall Market Tabloid.
