Eva Sonaike’s new wallpaper collection

Dress your walls in our vibrant colours and patterns to complement your furniture and help bring your room to life. We are very excited to announce the launch of our very first wallpaper collection, featuring a blend of bestsellers from our Aburi, Falomo, Eko Eclipse, Vintage Safari and Asa collections.

When renovating our homes, or moving into a new place, we often spend a long time selecting wallpapers to match our vision. It can be quite a challenge and not a decision to be taken lightly, as it is often the most prominent element in the room. 

Patterns, colours, and prints

Eva Sonaike’s wallpaper collection offers a range of intricate yet bold, African batik patterns, as well as light-infused designs, soft pastel shades, and vibrant geometrics, that will instantly create an energising atmosphere in any room, making your walls turn into a piece of art.

The use of colours will compliment any home when paired with the right furniture and décor items. If your furniture is very subtle and plain, why not add that extra element with one of our more vibrant wallpaper designs, such as the Aye blue design with its intricate pattern? This pattern is perfect for encapsulating the African heritage through its elegance and luxury.

The importance of wallpaper

Eva’s collection brings to life the vibrancy of the African culture, which can be shared and admired by others. When you step into a room, you want to feel welcomed. You want to feel a sense of composure and ease through the vibrancy and display of colours. Our Asa wallpaper collection is the perfect example of this with its calming yet rejuvenating pattern.

And as today’s customer is intrigued to know where their products originate from and how they are made, we are very pleased to be supporting British manufacturing, as all our wallpapers are digitally printed in a family-run business in the heart of Lancashire, the UK’s traditional wallpaper hub. 

Our prints are created using all water-based, non-toxic inks that are transferred onto a range of finishes from smooth matte paper, moisture-resistant vinyl (as seen in Eva Sonaike’s C.P. Hart’s collaboration) and luxury linen with its natural fibre-like texture.

Creative Director Eva Sonaike says, “Our wallpaper range is a celebration of luxury African living, allowing you to infuse your home with elements that transform it into an oasis of colour and pattern from an often-neglected culture. The collection is open to interpretation, leaving space to create your own unique look with complementing products from our soft furnishing ranges and is perfect for full room sets or feature walls to make a statement.” 

Eva Sonaike’s wallpaper collection is a stunning addition to your home. The designs are a celebration of African culture and what better way to do that than by transforming your empty walls into a welcoming space. The introduction to wallpapers is a new beginning for Eva Sonaike and a journey that you can follow us on by signing up for our newsletter for regular updates from our London studio.
