The Company

Alan and Judy KoesselBeyond the paint-chipped red door of a former felt factory in Chicago, Koessel Studios creates hand-crafted artisanal wallpapers of incomparable beauty and originality.

Here texture trumps all. It’s where the design process begins. Patterns emerge as pigment is layered in brushstrokes, which lends the paper a sculptural quality, a rich tactile sense and enveloping Paintbrushes and Wallpaperluminosity.

Crafted entirely by hand, the human touch is subtly perceptible in the one-of-a-kind finished product.  Mastering their craft for more than twenty years, Koessel Studios aims for imperfect beauty – the “regular irregularity” of the repeat pattern, which transforms a room and gives it soul.
