A Brief History of Vahallan Papers
VAHALLAN was established in 1997 after one of the co-owners, Dan, attempted to repair a section of damaged wallpaper in his own home. Once he realized a simple repair option didn’t exist, he became inspired to create a much more artistic wall covering alternative that would be applied to the wall in smaller “panels”. He envisioned that smaller decorative panels would not only create more beautiful walls, it would also improve the reparability of any paper damage. He recruited his current business partner, Cory, and Vahallan Papers was born.
After years of experimenting with different colors, techniques, supplies and wall application styles, they eventually developed a small line of elegant designs that were truly unique. Interior designers began to take notice of the paper’s beauty and realized the potential for their product. These designers also realized that the creative concept of installing wall coverings in smaller, artistic panels added a depth to their walls they couldn’t get from painting alone. As word began to spread about VAHALLAN’s hand-painted designs, their reputation for high-quality wall coverings began to grow.
Through years of hard work, perseverance and constant innovation, Dan and Cory continue to build on VAHALLAN’s strong reputation for creating some of the finest decorative wall coverings in the industry. Even though the company has grown dramatically over the years, the basic principals of VAHALLAN remain ingrained in the foundation of the business. Our drive to stay at the forefront of the wall covering industry fuels our passion, creativity and innovation. Our entire staff of artisans constantly strive to produce the most beautiful designs available on the market. Our commitment to hand-painting each and every one of our patterns will continue to inspire elegant, one-of-a-kind room designs and further solidify the success of VAHALLAN for years to come.
