Wallpaper LAB

From NYTimes: Artists have long designed wallcoverings, and now a new company, Wallpaper LAB, has made such rarefied wallpapers its raison d’ĂȘtre. An exhibition of its inaugural line of 15 papers by, from left, artists including Fred Tomaselli, Douglas Gordon, Carol Peligian and Phoebe Washburn, will open Sept. 7 at the Lennon, Weinberg Gallery in Chelsea. The digitally printed designs come in 42-inch rolls with repeating patterns or continuous images. A set of rolls for a single design costs $3,500 to $45,000. The designs will be at the gallery, 514 West 25th Street, until Oct. 14; (212) 941-0012. Wallpaper LAB is at (212) 330-7127.
