For almost 19 years, Wallpaper* has showcased the very best in global design. And now, dear reader, we are offering you the opportunity to buy it. Launched last month, the WallpaperSTORE* is the go-to retailer of refined stuff. It's generously stocked with design desirables, staples and giftables, representing some 150 brands and designers. The selection is as broad as our magazine's remit, from homewares, lighting, textiles and home fragrance to desk accessories and stationery, travel accessories and personal electronics. Special-edition cushions by Raf Simons for Kvadrat and Konstantin Grcic's 'Diana' tables for ClassiCon are at the ready.
In September, find double-faced blankets made especially for WallpaperSTORE* by Massimo Alba. Later in the year, we'll bring back design icons that are not currently in production, such as Venini's 'Ciga' decanter and glasses, created by Massimo Vignelli in 1979 for the Ciga hotel group.
And for the first time, we will be presenting to the market a selection of pieces originally commissioned as one-off wonders for Wallpaper* Handmade: Hannah Martin's sculptural letter opener; Bethan Gray's striped marble tableware; Studio Appetit's chocolate-carving set; and Christian Haas' mirrored Armagnac tasting cabinet, among many others. For the most enthusiastic Wallpaper* fans, we even offer the logic-defying, larger-than-life marble chips by Michael Anastassiades and Henraux that graced the cover of our August 2013 issue.
It has taken years to bring this very special project to life, because we're determined to deliver to the high standards that are naturally expected of Wallpaper*. So steady your mouse hand, close non-essential windows and ready your bookmarks: with a few simple clicks, you can make your world more Wallpaper*.
