Luxury real estate. Inspired living.
With Earth Day right around the corner, I’ve got eco-friendly products on the brain. And one new eco-conscious decorative element that intrigues me is York’s line of wallpapers that feature textured patterns made with recycled glass and sand. Made with proprietary machinery developed by York, the wallpapers are printed on breathable, eco-friendly non-woven paper with water-based inks and come in a wide range of colors and patterns. One of my favorites is the Seabury pattern shown above.
Last fall, a few journalists were invited to visit their facility in York, Pennsylvania, and were shown many of its other eco-friendly approaches to doing business, including recycling inks and rollers and even ideas—a sampling of some of its archival documents, which the company’s lead designer and chief archivist, Ronald Redding, showed us while we were there is pictured below. It’s fascinating to see how its designers find inspiration in the past and give it a new twist by altering images and recoloring with hues that work in modern environments.
