New luxury British wallpaper brand, Renn Designs, creates beautifully illustrated children’s wallpaper to inspire young imaginations, encourage storytelling and bring a little magic to children’s rooms.
With a background in children’s book illustration and textile design, founder Chantal Renn saw a unique opportunity to combine her experiences and use them to create intricate, engaging designs with a wealth of detail and a narrative element, while retaining a contemporary aesthetic. With the launch of four initial designs, Renn Designs wallpaper can transform a room into a luscious jungle, a magical view of the Northern Lights, a serene fairytale land and a cat-lover’s Paradise. The hand-drawn designs are printed in Britain, on sustainably sourced non-woven (paste-the-wall) paper.
The logo of the little Wren bird originates from Chantal’s grandad, Harold Renn’s old East London-based business, Wren’s shaped Ply. Harold’s factory made furniture out of shaped plywood, a technique his father before him had perfected as a piano-maker, and during WWII when he was asked to advise on the design and construction of a light wooden aircraft, the Mosquito.
Renn Designs sells directly to customers via their online shop, wholesale through stockists and works with interior designers and developers. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss your wallpaper project – they look forward to hearing from you!
