Here are some real quotes from real customers that speak to our level of service:

“Thank you so much. It is beautiful. We will be putting it up hopefully this weekend. Again thanks for the great service and I will definitely order again and tell others about you.”

“We finally finished the walls, paper up, painted the lower half. Still have lighting, carpet and curtains to do but we’re just happy with the results and the paper really brightened up the room. Thank you for all your help.”

“Your customer service is over the top! Thank you so much for your communications and attention to this transaction. Looking forward to receiving my order. I will leave great feedback and send pics when installation is done.”

“My husband and I came into your store about 2.5 years ago and I was hugely pregnant and we had just closed on a house. We are from Ohio and we were so excited to find a real life brick and mortar wallpaper store. Your selection was amazing and we bought some vintage newspaper print wallpaper without a specific project in mind. We are currently in covid quarantine and we’re working on the house. We finally got the opportunity to use our incredible wallpaper and we couldn’t be more happy with the results. (I wallpapered a tiny section in my laundry room before this with a vertical stripe, so this was my first real wallpaper job). Anyways, I just wanted to thank you all and when we were there we promised to send pictures so here we are. Thank you so much for being a part of making our house our home.”

Materials like grasscloth are all natural and grown in sustainable forests and fields.
