Pergola presents Handmade Japanese Wallpaper from Kyoto
Pergola has introduced (for the first time in this country) a new program of elegantly designed and beutifully executed "washi" wallpapers from Kiso Studios of Kyoto. Blocks of color and texture, hand-painted or -stained with vegetable dyes (nikawa); young persimmons with tannins (kakishibu); or coated with layers of Japanese lacquer (urushi).
Samples have been installed on several walls at Pergola. In the process, they discovered it's incredibly easy to install using conventional papering methods. Washi offers a luxurious and long-lasting accent to one wall, to doors or cabinetry faces, or to an entire room.
Handmade Japanese "washi" paper in (roughly) 36 x 40" blocks, each sheet overlapping left to right to show the live edge, can be installed to perfection by their iinstaller.
