At CommonRoom we wanted to find a way to make high-quality contemporary art accessible to the many rather than the few. We did this by commissioning working artists to design conceptual wallpapers. Wallpaper has generally been thought of as background rather than foreground – but not at CommonRoom. Our wallpapers are designed to challenge and excite. Just like every great artwork.
In purchasing a CommonRoom design you will be supporting emerging and established artists while acquiring a contemporary artwork. All our products are made in the UK by lovely people and real craftsmen. This supports British manufacturing and also helps minimise our carbon footprint.
CommonRoom was launched in 2014 by London-based artist Kate Hawkins. It is her first commercial venture and she is very excited. She hopes you are too.
