Blackburn-based wallpaper manufacturer Graham & Brown this week launches a wallpaper collection, 4 Walls, designed by Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway. The collection aims to change perceptions about what wallpapers can be, according to Graham & Brown marketing manager Alan Kemp. The Hemingways were given an open brief, but the company wanted an affordable solution, he says. ‘We want to attract new customers to the idea of wallcoverings,’ adds Kemp. The first collection consists of eight designs in 11 colourways and includes Pixel and Ringo.
