Artful Expressions for the Wall

Jorge Arango

Jee Levin and Randall Buck are artists who find inspiration in a myriad of images. Design influences for Trove, their innovative wall-coverings company in Brooklyn, run the gamut from an Alfred Hitchcock movie, which is expressed in Indi, featuring a shadowy flock of birds, to Wim Wenders’ film Wings of Desire, which motivated the new Alar pattern, to New York’s flower market in the petal-driven Alcyone design. “We like to reference modern artists in our work,” says Levin. Now any of its 20 patterns are available on 90 varieties of natural and reconstituted wood veneers, including maple, oak, cherry, walnut, birch, and bamboo ($45 per square foot). The woods’ grain, faintly visible beneath the design, deepens the richness of each. They’re happy to produce custom designs and colors as well. (212.268.2046, www.troveline.com)
