We’ve been successfully selling children’s wallpapers from Inke for a number of years but it seems that now is a good time to take a fresh look at the Inke vintage patterned wallpaper designs. Inke remains an extremely popular choice amongst our clients looking for a patterned wallpaper which offers something a little bit different for a child’s room. But first here’s a little bit of background information on the Inke brand:
Inke Heiland is an artist /designer living in the Netherlands. She graduated in 2002 from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Wallpaper Wildlife, the first range, started off as an idea for decorating her son’s bedroom. Inke was so satisfied with the result that she presented the silhouettes in 2004 at an exhibition and, after lots of positive feedback, decided to turn her idea into a business. The silhouettes are made from real vintage wallpapers from a treasure trove of original papers from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. The Inke silhouettes are selected from the best of the vintage patterns which are cut and crafted in the workshops in Inke’s home town of Leiden.
Since the early silhouettes which continue to maintain their popularity, the Inke range has evolved to include new work such as the Inke World Maps and a range of all over printed wallpapers, featuring retro repeat patterns, birds on wires and rows of houses. There’s something to fit all tastes and budgets within the Inke range.
Since the early beginnings Inke’s designs have featured in countless interiors all over the world and have been published in many magazines. One of our bestsellers at the moment is the World Map, which is available in two sizes – a three-metre width or a four-metre width. This week we’ve added a couple of new designs to our range of Inke patterned wallpapers: with the arrival of the Spring we thought it would be nice to add the Inke tulips to our online offer. At a cost of 19,95 euros for 4 tulips I think this is a lovely way to add some interest to a plain wall.
