Creepy Wallpaper and Fabric Patterns

September 7th, 2007 by Cobwebs

Iguana Print WallpaperTimorous Beasties offers a variety of surreal wallpaper, fabric, and accessories with patterns both subtle and provocative. Here’s a quote from their “About” page:

By depicting uncompromisingly contemporary images on traditional textiles and wallpapers, Timorous Beasties has defined an iconoclastic style of design once described as “William Morris on acid.” Typical is the Glasgow Toile. At first glance it looks like one of the magnificent vistas portrayed on early 1800s Toile de Jouy wallpaper, but closer inspection reveals a nightmarish vision of contemporary Glasgow where crack addicts, prostitutes and the homeless are depicted against a forbidding backdrop of dilapidated tower blocks and scavenging seagulls.

The firm is located in the U.K., but they also have a supplier in New York: Holland and Sherry
