    Parlour Games

    CommonRoom have a unique approach to creating wallpaper. Their aim, they say, is to make high-quality contemporary art accessible to the many rather than the few, and to do this they commission both emerging and established fine artists to come up with original designs. Their latest design ‘Parlour’, by Casa Estudio launched at this year’s London Design Festival and has been developed for the new interior of the parlour at London restaurant Sketch. It combines influences from both the architecture and decorative details of the 18th Century Conduit Street building, as well as Christian Dior’s 1970s London atelier. Launched in 2014 by London-based artist Kate Hawkins, all the company’s products are made in the UK by real craftsmen, which in turn supports British manufacturing and also helps minimise their carbon footprint. £130 per roll
