Wallpaper-collection "Chorus Line 2014" by Rasch
With the new Chorus Line wallpaper collection, rasch presents funky bold colours, geometric patterns, and a bit of a Walkman feeling.
The Eighties: the Walkman is launched and Miami Vice flickers across people’s TV screens; trendy teenagers have made the streets their own, and a musical, Chorus Line, is taking Broadway by storm. With its new wallpaper collection of the same name, rasch is breathing new life into the unconventional style of the Eighties – with sparkling designs, large-scale geometric patterns, and a number of lively colours.
Chorus Line was developed in rasch’s own studio in Bramsche. The unusual collection shows that the informal and colourful style which caused such a furore in the Eighties can also be a real talking point today. These high-quality non-woven wallpapers are loud, open, and expressive – but always with a touch of elegance and a little something extra. This, for example, includes fine silver particles, 3D repeating patterns, and velvety-soft textures. The typical block stripes are also interpreted afresh in this collection, and are now combined with graphical patterns. The result is richly imaginative, pluralistic designs which, despite their extrovert appearance, are anything but obtrusive and are suitable for many styles of interior decoration.
Geometric forms are given particular emphasis in the Chorus Line collection. Whether it’s ovals, rhombuses, or zig-zag patterns, the retro wave conjures individual statements onto the wall which grab everyone’s attention. These are optimally complemented by strong, mood-enhancing colours such as purple, yellow, royal blue, grass green, and caramel. Anyone preferring things a little more understated can enjoy the retro patterns in delicate, low-key nuances, such as beige, sand, cream, light grey, and white. Yet, time and again, with Chorus Line, beautiful metallic effects manage to shine through, so that the walls of your home can be transformed into a glamorously glittering stage in the blink of an eye.
