Cosmos from Sarkos is a wallpaper of uncommon beauty, with a hazy wash of watery blue or smoky charcoal blasted by a spray of gold-leaf points resembling stars in the night sky. There is no pattern repeat – the shimmering dots seem to cluster or spread out at random – and the texture is similar to a painting.
There’s good reason for the variability and tactile nature of the product. Stephanie Dedes Reimers, who founded the company last year, paints and splatters the paper by hand in her Brooklyn studio.
“When you look at something that’s done by hand, it has a certain soul that something printed will never have,” said Ms. Dedes Reimers. “And no two installations are ever alike.”
