If the history of wall decoration could be acknowledged and captured in a simple collection, designer Barry Dixon has achieved this in his first wallcoverings collection for Vervain. Hear the inspiration behind this extraordinary collection and see the innovative printing techniques used to create these remarkable designs including a large-scale, digitally printed, pastoral mural that spans more than 13 feet wide and nine feet tall. Laser printing and digital imaging are mixed with more traditional methods of hand printing, flocking and beading to craft Barry’s brave and romantic wallcoverings that bend time to contour to the walls of modern rooms.
