#FFFind: Trish’s bedroom wallpaper in Jessica Jones
Our latest #FFFind (Film and Furniture find) is for a reader who asked us if we could track down the eye-catching, elegant wallpaper in Trish Walker’s apartment in Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
Created for Netflix by Melissa Rosenberg and based on the Marvel comics of the same name, Krysten Ritter stars as Jessica Jones, a former superhero who opens her own detective agency based in New York City. Rachael Taylor plays Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss plays Jeri Hogarth together with Eka Darville, Mike Colter, Wil Traval, Erin Moriarty, and David Tennant joining them for the first season, with J.R. Ramirez, Terry Chen, Leah Gibson and Janet McTeer joining for the second season released on March 8, 2018.
Trish Walker’s bedroom wall covering (beautifully chosen for the film set by Set Decorator Alison Froling and with Production Design by Loren Weeks) features a kaleidoscope of fluttering inky-blue butterfly-like shapes. This wallpaper is from the collection called ‘Grotte’ from Trove and is representative of this design company’s organic yet highly sophisticated approach.
Founded in 2006 in New York City, Trove is led by Jee Levin and Randall Buck, who are both accomplished artists and the creative force behind the brand. Jee Levin, who applies her technique and philosophy of painting to wallcovering design, seeks to create wallpaper that breaks all the rules by reimagining the current language of wallpaper from repetitive graphic patterns to organic imagery with less repeat and more of the random. Depth and perspective replace geometry and line. Randall Buck, a multi-media artist who works in time-based media, envisions pattern from an architectural perspective and engages technology in an effort to return the design work back to a finished form, which is tactile, distinct and inspired.
The resulting wallcovering designs by Trove push the limits of scale and repeat with unique patterns that are 12 feet high and 3 to 6 feet across. As the founding partners of Trove, Levin and Buck say they “aspire to merge art, design, and craft – mixing traditionally recognized decorative elements with nontraditional application and eco-friendly materials”.
Grotte is only available for contract or commercial use and therefore not available to the public but we can most likely order it for you through the Film and Furniture Interior Design service: Contact us at [email protected] if you’re interested.
