The Origins of Flavor
Founded on the Oregon coast by a guy named Ted, this small handscreened wallpaper company flourished in the Age of Aquarius.
Many years later, some young designers seeking striking wallcoverings discovered Ted‘s greatness – just days before the designs and equipment were to be destroyed. Knowing what had to be done, they headed west to save Ted’s legacy.
Relocated to the Bywater District of New Orleans, Flavor Paper continued to print using Ted’s traditional printing methods and vacuum table, but with greatly increased accuracy and detail.
Our Flavor Lair is now located in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn and is home to Flavor Paper’s design and screen printing studios, as well as showroom. Two re-engineered versions of Ted’s original table are the centerpiece of the Flavor Kitchen and the backbone of our wallpaper printing operation. To support our handscreened printing process, the Kitchen houses a darkroom, screen etching equipment, and an ink room where we custom mix all of our colors. Printing becomes street art as the front windows allow pedestrians to watch the process happen in the massive overhead mirrors.
The Flavor Paper showroom is located on the second floor and offers clients a unique way to view wallpaper and experience the bespoke offerings that make Flavor Paper so unique. We pour our heart and soul into making the best experience possible for the fans of Flavor and anyone interested in checking what is possible in the world of wallpaper should come check us out!
We also opened up a second, digital wallcovering Kitchen at Industry City in Brooklyn, which allows us to expand our creativity beyond repeating pattern work. Huge scale murals, amazing photography, and fast-turn custom work are now pushing the definition of what wall art can be at Flavor Paper.
