interdisciplinary: involving two or more academic, scientific, or artistic disciplines.
We are a boutique design studio specializing in fine wallpapers with highly textured surfaces. We print on metallic grasscloth wallpaper, silk wallpaper, and Japanese woven wallpaper as well as other innovative grounds. Our singular collection of patterns and murals are often inspired by early twentieth century art movements such as the Bauhaus, French Modernism or Art Nouveau. We bring a fresh eye to timeless wallpaper patterns and reinvent them for modern interiors pushing the boundaries of texture, color, and design. Our wish is to inspire designers’ wit and imagination to create unconventional interiors; our short lead times and our myriad of custom options help make this possible.
Aux Abris was founded by interior decorator and graphic designer Karen Robert in 2015. Karen Robert has a passion for interiors and founded Aux Abris out of the desire to add a layer of her own wallpaper patterns to her interior design projects. Her design aesthetic was honed during her many years living in Paris, London and Milan; she likes well-worn rooms with quirky modern touches and an exuberance of color, texture and pattern. The name “Aux Abris” means “take shelter” which is a nod to both her vacation house in Shelter Island, and her husband who is half French. This year, Robert is excited to launch her hospitality line with the aim of bringing a fresh perspective to contract wallcoverings and murals.
