AN Interior: Better Together: Calico Wallpaper and Stellar Works co-retail in New York’s storied Pearl Paint building
Many months in the making, the new flagship of Stellar Works and Calico Wallpaper outpost has opened in the historic Tribeca building once occupied by the beloved, long-defunct Pearl Paint art supply store. Both illustrious design brands—often grabbing headlines with their dynamic wares—decided to join forces late last year and adopt the now popular co-retail model. The mutual benefits of this approach are wide-reaching, especially in the post-pandemic climate. While Calico Wallpaper continues to produce sought-after hand-painted collections, Stellar Works’s high-profile collaborations grow its already robust offering of well-crafted, soberly-styled furniture and lighting. Transforming 4,000 square feet of post-industrial Italianate storefront was a labor of love.
