With a more literal meaning of the word “natural,” Thibaut’s new wallpaper collection, Natural Resource Volume 2, encompasses raw materials and specialty papers such as printed corks, sisals, paperweaves and metallic linens. A few patterns have been brought forward in new colorways from older
collections, including Cork and Herringbone Weave from Natural Resource, and Ceriman and Alexander from Neutral Resource. New introductions include sensuous textures like mica and flock.

Originally appearing in Netural Resource in 2 colorways, Alexander is a modifi ed contemporary pattern available in a range of colorways with metallic pewter, silver, or gold geometric medallions printed on top of the paperweave. Its clean, bold, and graphic appearance is accompanied with an abundance of texture. 4 new colorways have been added.
The Money Tree is also called the “Good Luck Tree” and is an age-old token of good luck and an invitation to good fortune. It is the most popular plant for Feng Shui because it creates positive energy, and is rumored to bring prosperity and wealth and decorates the home with nature and good luck. The pattern is printed under sisal on a foil ground.
A new version of Carolyn Trellis, a paperweave originally in the Caravan collection. This horizontal paperweave is made to look like grass on foil grounds and was designed to be reverse hung. The cream, silver, aqua, and beige colors are printed on top to achieve the trellis pattern.
