To celebrate 100 years of Albany paint and wallpapers, a new collection of special prints has been created by the fabulous Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire at Mini Moderns.
Keith and Mark were given free rein to create two new patterns, from a decade of their choice, to mark the occasion. Unsurprisingly, based on the duo’s signature style, the pair were immediately drawn to the mid-century years of the 1950s and 1960s and so Atelier and FAB! were born.
Melanie Adams, Head of Wallpaper and Retail Development at Brewers “We’ve always enjoyed working with Mini Moderns and love Mark and Keith’s energy and passion for their designs and so I was thrilled when they agreed to create two exclusive papers for us to celebrate 100 years of Albany. The designs are perfect, we are over the moon with the results and are sure our customers will be too”
The designers say that the collaboration with Albany has been extremely rewarding. “This has been a dream collaboration for a pair of mid-century nuts like us”, say Mark and Keith. “We’ve worked closely with Melanie Adams and Alice Bell (Wallpaper & Fabrics Category Manager at Brewers), who gave us total creative freedom. We’ve enjoyed exploring the possibilities of some new production techniques too. We are so excited to launch the two new prints and we’re certain that the designs will appeal to our core fans and people new to our brand.”
The Albany X Mini Moderns designs are both paste the wall and are exclusively available, in celebration of 100 years of Albany, from wallpaperdirect.com and brewers.co.uk.
