London-based Tracy Kendall has liberated wallpaper from flatland. Her handcrafted, handsewn fabrications consist of cut and layered papers, polyester thread, and applied sequins. The result is walls that seem to breathe, dance, and crackle, thus stimulating the senses. Tracy Kendall has developed at least three types of wallpaper: In the White Room, Cut, and Sequin.
In the White Room is designed to add depth and texture to a wall and is made of paper and thread; Cut is a handcut wallpaper, which can be used either on its own or with a patterned or colored paper beneath it to reveal the cut sections; and Sequin comes alive when lit, as the sequins project their own patterns onto other walls and surfaces.
