Mike Diamond of the Beastie Boys wanted a Brooklyn-inspired toile wallpaper to line the walls of his Cobble Hill brownstone. He approached Revolver New York to execute his vision artistically and Flavor Paper to produce the design as wallpaper.
Aside from occupying pride of place in Mike D’s home, Brooklyn Toile has been recognized by MoMA: Destination NYC, acquired by the Brooklyn Museum as part of their permanent collection, and featured by the likes of the New York Times. Images of the wallpaper have gone viral on social media platforms and design blogs around the world.
