Benjamin Moore + The Alpha Workshops Debut Hand-Painted Wallpaper

When it comes to high-quality products and on-trend paint colors, there are few brands with the name recognition and loyal following as Benjamin Moore.

The New Jersey-based company continues to innovate the market over a century after they opened their doors with their “Color of the Year,” specialized palettes, and interactive inspiration tools, for starters.

In an effort to expand their reach in the world of wall coverings, Benjamin Moore recently announced a collaboration with The Alpha Workshops to create stunning hand-painted wallpaper called The Capsule Collection. 

Capsule Collection | Topography

The Alpha Workshops is the only registered nonprofit organization providing employment and education in the decorative arts for at-risk youth, adults with disabilities, and other vulnerable populations based in New York City and across the country. Students and employees at Alpha Workshops use Benjamin Moore paints from the Century, Aura, and Studio Finishes collections to finish the 15 wallpaper designs; each styled “with design industry professionals in mind.”

Each section of wallpaper for The Capsule Collection is meticulously designed. “Signs of each artists’ hands find a way into the textured wallpaper. You see it in the sumptuous tactility of dripped paint. In the still-visible imprint of the crafter’s sponge. In the diaphanous layers of shimmering color, only achieved with the lightest touch. At Alpha, there’s an understanding: true beauty is in the hand,” notes a representative from Benjamin Moore. 

Capsule Collection | Newport

Customers can choose from five different patterns in three color palettes in The Capsule Collection: Topography, Spencer, Newport, Kimono, and Horizon.

This special partnership combines “great hands” with great paint; ultimately broadening the scope of Benjamin Moore’s products, and engaging some of the world’s most talented artists at the same time.
