A Maine entrepreneur keeps the art of wallpaper alive through unique designs

Susan Connery started The Wall Works, a company specializing in fine paint and wallpaper, in 1988, and more than 30 years later, it’s more in demand than ever.

Although wallpaper may seem like a decorating trend from the distant past, societal changes over the past two years have meant that more people are spending more time at home. The pandemic, the availability of remote work and the desire to spend time in an environment that is both beautiful and comfortable have combined to give wallpapers a new lease of life.

In the past, wallpaper was like wedding china, according to Connery. “You chose your model. It kept up with the times,” she said. “It’s more than a background now.”
