The term “Design Wallpaper”
How can the term design wallpaper be defined? The word design carries many positive associations, for instance: artistic, modern, exceptional interiors, trends, value, exclusivity. Design means that the manufacturer, designer or creative has put a lot of thought into a product or topic and then follows/creates a trend or conveys a specific message with his or her design. Well-known brands or labels in the fashion world are a very good example of this concept. Design imparts an individual style or specific characteristics.
Just like every other product line or industry, wallpapers are also often created by renowned and well-known brands or designers as well as prestigious wallpaper manufacturers or smaller labels. All of those concentrate on a specific theme, production process, exceptional materials or pattern structures, i.e. a USP for their wallpaper design.
The magic word in the world of design wallpapers world is: Discovery. This is why our wallpaper shop introduces you to designers and manufacturers with interesting stories, experiences or innovations connected to their individual wallpaper design.

We have divided our excellent high-quality design wallpapers into a number of pattern categories in order to make it easier for you to make your choice.

Our gallery with customer pictures from around the world illustrates that the Designer Wallpapers from our expansive range don't just shine in their official product photographs, but also “IRL”, that is to say they enhance our beloved customers' homes.
Our beautiful patterned wallpapers enable you to optically change the layout of a room, make it look bigger, make high ceilings appear lower, emphasise specific areas, or set them apart from the rest of the room. The choice of colour, too, has an influence on corrective optical measures. Light colours expand the space, darker colours make it look smaller. You can find additional information in each of the pattern categories. We're also more than happy to answer your questions regarding the best choice of patterns in relation to your room features.
Ingenious materials for design wallpapers - enjoy them with all your senses!
Designer wallpapers are characterised by sophisticated materials and structures, emphasised by patterns and colours. Each design wallpaper consists of a carrier layer and a decorative top layer.
The carrier layer can be made from non-woven materials or paper. The top layer materials, which ultimately determine the appearance of your design wall treatment, can be categorised as follows:
- Natural Wallpapers: Surface made of bamboo, grass, cork, leaves
- Textile Wallpapers: Surface made of natural or synthetic fibres (warp threads/fabric), e.g. cotton, silk, linen, felt, bast, feathers
- Leather Wallpapers: Surface made of imitation leather or leatherette (vinyl coating), various embossing types or smooth
- Crush Wallpapers: Surface usually consists of textile fibres which undergo a special process creating regular or irregular folds or creases, tactile relief
- Flock Wallpapers: Surface made of viscose fibres, fluffy, high-low structure, patterns and motifs stick out from the background as a result of the flocking
- Glass-bead Wallpapers: Surface made from small glass beads which can be distributed over large areas, form shapes or motifs, create stunning glossy and glittery effects and multi-dimensional structures
- Metal Wallpapers: Surface made of rolled metal foil treated with colourful glazes or varnishes, oxidation, etching, fine stamping and print patterns
- Effect Foil Wallpapers: Surface made of thin, specially treated foils, creating 3D, mirror, hologram and rainbow effects when hit by light
As a result of their natural consistency or the lamination of the carrier layer, various different materials create a specific structure (e.g. natural materials, textile materials, glass beads). In leather wallpapers, for instance, this structure is provided by embossing. Effect foil wallpapers are smooth to the touch, whereas metal wallpapers can either be smooth or come with textile pattern structures in order to get the most out of the metallic effect.
