If you love the look of wall-to-wall bookshelves but don’t have the books or the shelves, you can get the same effect with this fab new wallpaper from UK-based Studio Mold, which the trend-spotters at Urban Source spotted at ICFF—and then brought home with them to their West Town shop. A 19 ½– by 98-inch roll is $175 (the repeat is 28 inches), at Urban Source. Comes in Vintage and White. Notice how the books are stacked spine-side back—we’ve seen lots of designers do this to reel in the chaos on the shelves.
