HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Peel and stick wallpaper manufacturer Tempaper & Co. extends the brand into the area rug category with its first lineup rolling out at the spring High Point Market.

Launched in 2008 by co-founders Julia Au and Jennifer Matthews, Tempaper became known for its domestically made, easy to apply and remove peel and stick wallpapers. Now, the New York-based studio is debuting its inaugural area rug collection, Craft Settings, which includes seven designs in four qualities from tufted wool to indoor-outdoor designs. The company is also adding the Perennial collection, its first traditional, paste wallpaper designs.

"Both walls and floors have a powerful perspective in grounding a room. They are perfect vehicles to display pattern and texture, two qualities that have always been at the heart of our company," Matthews, chief creative officer, told RugNews.com. "Adding a rug line was a natural extension of our teams’ love of craftsmanship, for beautiful pattern and color."

Jennifer Matthews and Julia Au eye expansion of the Tempaper brand.

Many designs from the Crafted Settings collection are inspired by Tempaper & Co.’s best-selling wallpaper prints such as the Moire Dots wallpaper, Pastel Palm design, the Chinoiserie collection and its Swell pattern.

"The rugs and wallpaper designs pair nicely to create a space with a strong visual impact. We also gravitated toward a neutral color palette, so the rugs would fit nearly any home’s aesthetic. We selected hand-woven and hand-tufted rugs offered in 100 percent New Zealand wool and a jute/wool blend because it’s high-quality and can be offered at an accessible price point."

The Crafted Settings Collection Consists of Seven Designs:
