Home and Living is a huge fan of wallcoverings and today we share that passion with Phoebe Brandt, Partner/Head Designer, and Carl Pascuzzi, Partner/Creative Director, for EDGE Wallcoverings.
Q.: Welcome to Home and Living! Talk to us about Edge Wallcoverings and how it came to be.
A: (Carl) Thank you! EDGE Wallcoverings is the result of a merger between two friends that were working in the art, design and fashion industries but wanted to create a design product that would change the way people think about traditional wallpaper and surface coverings.
Q.: EDGE stands for what and what do you want shoppers to know about your business?
A: (Phoebe) EDGE stands for Exceptional Design Goes Everywhere. Our goal is to provide original imagery that can be used in any scale to transform the look and feel of any size space.
Q.: Are your design wallcoverings only for the trade or do you help homeowners?
A: (Carl) Our designs are available for everyone!
Q.: Do you have suggestions on how a homeowner should start?
A: (Phoebe) It’s really important when designing your home to think about the house as a whole and then consider what role you want each room to play. Do you want each room to be individualistic or to contribute to the design scheme in its entirety? The next step is to choose the color scheme and furniture. We always feel wallcoverings are very useful in helping tie the room/concept together to create a magnificent backdrop to your life!
“EDGE stands for Exceptional Design Goes Everywhere.”
Q.: What are some of the reasons that contractors should think about doing business with you?
A: (Carl) All of our work is unique and we are also available to provide custom imagery if a client should request a specific colorway, theme and/or inspiration.
Q.: What can you tell us about pricing? Shipping?
A: (Phoebe) We currently have showroom, trade, and retail pricing. Our textured papers range from $26/sq ft for trade- $52/ sq ft for retail. Our photographic prints as wallcovering range from $53/sq ft showroom- $140 sq ft retail. We also print on a variety of other materials that we can custom quote. Our product is produced custom to fit the desired space; once we have the dimensions, it normally takes 4-6 weeks to ship within the U.S.
Q.: What is the one coolest feature about your website?
A: (Carl) Our imagery is the coolest feature in our website. Especially for MAC users we pride ourselves on matching our product color almost exactly to what you see on the screen.
Q.: Does your dog go to the office with you?
A: (Phoebe) That’s not our dog—Lola was a working model.
Q.: Where are customers going to find the products (link) and do you have a website for more information? Is there also a blog?
A: (Carl) www.edgewallcoverings.com We are currently working on a blog.
Q.: Is there anything else you would like to tell Home and Living Readers?
A: (Both- Carl and Phoebe) We want your readers to know that our imagery can be produced on many different materials and installed in many different ways. Of course our papers can be installed directly to the wall but can also look great on ceilings. We can also produce our designs as framed art pieces on a variety of materials such as metallic paper, aluminum, acrylic, transparencies, and glass.
