Known for their exquisite wallpaper and collaborations with well known designers, Graham & Brown have taken wallpaper one step further with their eco-chic range of sustainable wallpaper. The 60-year old wallpaper company is turning walls green thanks to their collaboration with students from Central St. Martins University in London, sustainable materials and production processes.


Graham and Brown asked 22 students to submit a design brief for eco wallpaper. Five winners were chosen to be taken through to production, and the five winning designs were on display at this year’s 100% Design in London. The final wallpaper uses materials sourced from sustainable forests in Finland and keeps packaging to a minimum by removing the need for any tape or plastic. The company even recycles heat given off by furnaces, reduces drainage to prevent local flooding problems, and uses vegetable oil within tractor hydraulics so as not to contaminate forest floors.

    Good to see wallpaper manufacturers providing more choice for environmentally friendly papers. In my interior design business I try as far as possible to use these when I can. Though it is not always easy to identify if they are printed with sustainability in mind. I tend to go to Wallpaperking to their eco wallpaper section but I’m always looking to add to my supplier list.
