We love the ways sustainable design inspires creativity in completely unexpected and innovative ways. Case in point: The recycled newspaper wallpaper called “Newsday” by Weitzner that, quite literally, is stealing the headlines.
Recently featured in the Los Angeles Times, the effect of Newsday is clever–“instantly identifiable up close, but pleasantly abstract from afar. The wallpaper has an earthy, vintage quality to it — which could explain why its designer, Weitzner, is marketing it as an alternative to grass cloth.”
Using an age-old technology of upcycling old newspapers, 100% real newsprint strips are handwoven on a loom and then paperbacked to make Newsworthy suitable for the wall.
For obvious reasons, it’s not recommended that Newsday be installed on rooms exposed to direct sunlight. And, given the nature of the material–newspaper–no two rolls of wallpaper will be identical.
“The paper is 47 inches wide and sold in 5-yard increments through the trade, meaning an interior designer will need to price the material for you through a Weitzner representative.” For more information, visit Weitzner online.
