Polly Gone! Wallpaper in Iris Blue
Available in 8 colours
£99 per 10m roll from FEATHR.com
Having just completed a large home extension, English designer Liam McCormick felt that a big pattern wallpaper would suit one long wall and, with over twenty years’ experience in commercial design, McCormick decided to create it himself. Inspired by concrete municipal buildings of the ‘60s and ‘70s, and the repeating geometric patterns that were popular at that time, McCormick conceived Polly Gone! - a striking large-scale, retro, three-dimensional geometric design - in a variety of ‘70s colour swatches.
The call from Finnish start-up FEATHR in 2015, inviting designers to enter a competition to have their work sold on a new website that focused on stunning contemporary wall designs, was timely: McCormick could have his wallpaper printed and then leave the design up for anyone else who liked it.
Bringing Polly Gone! into this decade, McCormick has recently added contemporary colourways of teal and copper to the collection.
