La Paésine features a Tuscan limestone pictured at the bottom of each repeat. The designers spotted the stone at a flea market, photographed it and enlarged the photograph. The image was digitally printed onto mica mineral dust on a non-woven backing, giving the finished wallpaper a tactile quality. It comes in a natural version, as well as black and white.

La Mosaïque is based on a geometric mosaic pattern, most commonly seen in 18th-century marquetry, that creates a three-dimensional effect. The print is screen-printed onto a non-woven wall covering and finished with silver or gold leaf. This design comes in turquoise, lapis-lazuli and black; ochre, bordeaux and brown; fading whites; and fading greys.

"By blending humour with elegance and avant-garde ideals with classic tastes, by reinterpreting objects of all forms and sizes and by playing with false pretences, Maison Martin Margiela deconstructs shape and volume and moulds a conceptual aesthetic within a one of a kind realm," said the brand in a statement.
