Local Artisan: Quercus and Co

Quercus and Co is a local artisan that has caught my eye recently.  I discovered the new wallpaper design and printing company whilst walking through a supplier showroom, their fresh-off-the-press wallpaper sample book drew me in with their watery-print designs and perfectly balanced colours.

Launched last year by Adam Jones, the papers are gaining recognition quickly in the Australian design industry.  I like them not only for their hand made style, but for the joyous feeling that they will evoke in any interior.  The designs are playful yet stylish, the multitude of colours can create unlimited effects and the texture of the paper itself will lend another tactile layer to a scheme.  All this, plus the bonus of being manufactured in an environmentally considered fashion.

‘We love the characteristics of hand-made marks on paper – washy watercolour, scratchy charcoal, soft pencil, blobby block-print. All our designs are first drawn or painted by hand and then printed using the latest digital techniques.’ – Adam Jones

Quercus and Co also offer art prints and bespoke wallpaper options.  It’s well worth checking out the website http://www.quercusandco.com
