Harlem Toile de Jouy Wallpaper

$275.00 per roll

As an African American living in Harlem, I have always been intrigued and inspired by the historical narrative of the decorative arts, especially traditional French toile with its pastoral motifs from the late 1700s. I’m entertained by the stories these patterns tell and the questions they sometimes raise.   But after searching for many years for the perfect toile for my own home, I decided that it quite simply didn’t exist. My Harlem Toile wallpaper  (which lampoons some of the stereotypes deeply woven into the African American experience), has been featured in The Studio Museum In Harlem, The Cooper Hewitt Museum, The Museum of Art and Design in New York City and the Musée De La Toile De Jouy in France.

Our hand screened Harlem Toile wallpaper is 27″ wide x 5 yards long with a 30″ repeat. It is available in custom colors for an upcharge of $50 per roll and minimum of six rolls is required to place a custom order. There is a four roll minimum for regular orders. Strike offs are required for each custom order and each strike off is $175.00. Lead time for our wallpaper is 2-3 weeks for regular orders and 3-4 weeks for custom orders. We also recently introduced one digital paper ( hand colored with pencil) which is the same price as our hand screened but the lead time for this paper is 4-5 weeks. Please check with a professional wallpaper installer before ordering as our wall coverings cannot be returned or exchanged.
