Graham & Brown Launches Wallpaper Collection with Brian Eno

British wallpaper manufacturer Graham & Brown enlisted one of the most iconic figures in music to lend his creative magic to a collection of wallpaper that recently launched in the US. Brian Eno, a ridiculously prolific founding member of Roxy Music and frequent collaborator of artists like David Bowie, U2, Talking Heads, Coldplay, and more, has always dabbled in other mediums so it’s really no surprise he’s landed in the wallpaper arena. He created two bold prints, Flower Mask Blue Wallpaper and Flower Mask Jade Wallpaper, where he cleverly layered his own original designs with archival patterns from Graham & Brown.

The Mask series references abstract expressionism through its energetic graphics and vibrant color palettes which shift as you step away from it. The patterns will definitely add a dramatic statement to any wall complete with a cool story behind it.

Brian Eno says:

I think of wallpaper as ambient painting – an area of interior design that changes the atmosphere in a room. I really responded to classic floral designs and also those with West African roots from Graham & Brown’s archive, resulting in a dynamic layering of pattern to create the collection – a kind of music to be played on walls.
