Peek-a-Boo: Boutique Design New York Recap

Ahhh...the thrill of the discovery - it is probably my favorite part of the job.
Sourcing great product that you just know will make the difference in the next interior design scheme.

The BDNY recap on today's Peek-a-Boo is dedicated to a few of those moments, and focusing on wallcoverings and installation, beginning with:

Astek Wallcovering, a trade only supplier of custom wallcoverings and more, using Eco-Friendly UV-Print technology to cure the ink and provide a durable finish. Roll to roll printing: Vinyl, mylar, window film, canvas, self-adhesive, acetate, natural and fabric materials can be printed in full roll length runs. Flatbed printing: They can print directly onto almost any rigid substrate up to 1 ½” thick. Acrylic, wood, metal, even bubble wrap pose no challenges for these machines.

They have provided faux marble finishes on MDF boards for the series "Harry's Law (a favorite of mine), or custom wallpaper for the movie "Judy Moody & the Not Bummer Summer"...and these two gorgeous examples are only a few of the samples I kept with me...

Chinese Silk pattern on Gold Mylar

Then I came across ILevel - and art placement & installation service that is simply a great contact to have for designers and home owners alike. Rated by the Franklin Report, and with a client list of designers from Albert Hadley to Victoria Hagan, you can only imagine how fantasticly skillful and professional they are.

My last stop was at the Maya Romanoff Collection, which is the largest manufacturer of handcrafted wallcoverings in the United States, and a family run company for over 40 years.

From mother of pearl to vinyl, these wallcoverings are incredible and offer an amazing variety of styles and applicable in every home or hotel.
