Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto have reworked prints from the 22 years of Eley Kishimoto archives for their first wallpaper range.

"The new collection is the latest incarnation of a continually evolving design aesthetic; a re-working of seminal prints from the studio's archive that unifies existing designs with both garments and walls, resulting in a visceral exploration of surface decoration," said a statement from the duo.

The collection includes 12 different patterns, each available in a variety of colour combinations. They include La La Lyon, a contemporary interpretation of a traditional damask pattern.
