International Contemporary Furniture Fair 2010

Picture Wall wallpaper by<a href="http://www.deborahbowness.com/"><u>Deborah Bowness</u></a>: Bowness won a following with photo-realistic wallpaper depicting bookshelves and lamps in 2D. This year at ICFF, the British designer premiered a design replicating her favorite framed artworks, photographed in sections and reassembled <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PEHST000933" title="David Hockney" href="/topic/arts-culture/david-hockney-PEHST000933.topic">David Hockney</a>-style for a puzzle-like effect on the wall. Each strip of paper is silk-screened in black and white by hand, then painted in color by hand. "They're all from junk markets or secondhand shops," Bowness said of the artworks in the design. For her ICFF booth, the designer pinned to the wallpaper various tchotchkes -- vintage postcards, granny needlepoint and other novelties picked up days before while thrift shopping in Brooklyn. Perhaps the best part of the wallpaper? The image of an office clock, set to 1 p.m. "Always lunchtime," Bowness said.
