Introducing the Avondale Collection
Avondale is one of Vahallan’s new collections of 2023. Vahallan, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, is known worldwide for pushing the artistic envelope when it comes to designing gorgeous, one-of-a-kind wall coverings. Avondale is no exception – taking its name from the naturally graphic quality of birch bark.
Old-growth Irish birch served as our point of inspiration for the paper’s design. Downy birch and silver birch are two species of birch trees that are native to Ireland which launched our creativity with this particular pattern. Birch bark visually appears as layers with distinctly unique linear markings. Trees have a natural layering with branches and leaves and that is what our artisans do with our papers.
With Avondale, you’ll find delicate lines moving across panels to give an airy sense of branches set against a limitless sky. With patterns painted in earthy, elegant colors, Avondale is ready to lend tranquility and character to any space.
Our Avondale collection offers clients eight uniquely different patterns, or colorways as we refer to them, all named after places in Ireland. The paper is a panel format up to 15 feet in length and a recommended 28 inches trimmed in width. The colorways include:
We use custom colors to create our one-of-a-kind wall coverings. We find that our wall coverings can mask most imperfections that exist on walls. When you work with us, you know that we are installing breathtaking wall artistry that no one else has!
Because our papers are hand-painted like a canvas of art, keep in mind that there may be variations in color and texture from panel to panel, and seams will be visible. The variation and seams are intended to be part of the overall design in the space!
As with any hand-painted artwork, Vahallan wall coverings are never mass-produced which adds to the uniqueness and beauty of each collection. As one of the industry’s leaders in custom-designed wall coverings, you will never find the exact same wall covering in homes and offices around the world.
