Wallpaper is one of the most dramatic ways to add glamour and style to your home
And if you’re looking for a way to add some South African art to your walls, without hanging prints or paintings, feast your eyes on these gorgeous designs from Orms Wallpapers, who are offering a now-extended curated selection of designs by talented local artists.
After many years of printing custom, bespoke wallpapers for their clients, and eventually releasing The Artist’s Collection, Orms has introduced the addition of new artists and their works to the range.
“We have a unique client base, and over the years, we have come to learn that they want unique art on their walls. Corporate and commercial spaces are not looking for frivolous or stock image designs, but rather more refined, abstract visuals. In the beginning, this is what birthed the idea to collaborate with some of the many local artists we have right here in South Africa.
“Now, we’re proud to see the range growing, with more artists wanting to share their creations, and more clients looking to add something new and different to their spaces,” says Leanne who is incredibly inspired by the expansion of the collection.
As a company that is passionate about contributing to the creative industry and constantly looking for distinct and effective ways to showcase our nation’s artistic talent, Orms wallpaper stands for more than just a gorgeous new look for your space.
Local artists are able to offer their works, in grand scale, to an audience in search of something decidedly bespoke
The artworks are curated by an experienced panel with a keen eye for design, each with their own sense of pride and passion for local art. The panel reviews each of the submitted works, and assists in collecting the very best for the Orms wallpaper range. The project is growing rapidly, with hundreds of submissions coming in every month.
Featured artists include the likes of Leoni Auchamp of Auchamp Studios, who creates her striking, autumn-toned artworks through the process of eco-printing, which involves extracting dyes from various plants, designing a pattern on fabric, and then scanning these fabrics in. Another talented artist who has contributed to the Orms Wallpaper collection, Matt Slater, has created his works using photo chemicals on light sensitive paper, making for a dreamy, surreal visual finish.

A cost-effective way to completely transforming any space…fast
They’re available in a variety of different materials, such as linen, with an organic woven feel, and textured suede, which lends itself to rich blacks and saturated colours. The eco-friendly wallpaper is the most durable of them all, and can even withstand the moist conditions of bathrooms.
They’re all durable, scratch resistant and keeping them clean is as simple as wiping them down with a damp cloth. And for those who are not certain about making the visual commitment of wallpaper, it helps to know that the wallpaper can be removed without damaging the walls.
For Cape Town based customers in particular, the process of installing your beautiful new wallpaper is a seamless, efficient process. The Orms team comes to measure and assess the wall itself and advise the customer on the best way to bring their vision to life. Then, back at the print room, Orms double checks measurements and employs stringent quality control measures before heading to your home or office to complete the installation.
For those who are not based in Cape Town, Orms wallpapers can be shipped throughout the nation and around the globe.
