The Martin Group is one of several companies with trade showrooms in the Seaport’s prestigious Boston Design Center. Recently, the Martin Group expanded their line of Kerry Joyce home furnishings to include a debut wallpaper collection from Kerry Joyce Textiles.

Joyce is a veteran to the design circuit, receiving accolades from House Beautiful, Metropolitan Home, and Interiors. He also won an Emmy for set design in 1978. The designer is best known for his interior projects and partnered product collections including furniture with Dessin Fournir, lighting with Palmer Hargrave, and rugs with Mansour Modern. His new collection of Kerry Joyce Textiles wallpaper is unique because it uses texture as a pattern.

“The Textured Wall collection is inspired by the movement and materials found in nature—the curl of an ocean wave, the patterns of raindrops, textures of boardwalks and cityscapes,” Joyce says. Indeed the seven original designs include names such as “Wave Runner” and “Patter,” inspired by such imagery. Joyce also says the wallpaper is “hand screened on the finest quality art paper” and “embodies elegance without undue formality.”

The Textured Wall collection offers wallpaper with an interesting and muted color palette. The designs add subtle depth and dimension to a space, especially if one doesn’t want to overpower a room with color.
