U.S. Wallcovering Launches e-commerce Site

For the Lovc of Wallpaper.com Goes Live

U.S. Wallcovering has been in business for over a century and has continued to adhere to the principles originally promoted by its founder,  Abraham Levine--provide the best quality merchandise, offer the best value and support it all with the best customer service.  As U.S. Wallcovering made changes, those changes were always tied to what customers were asking for.  And, now, customers are asking for alternative shopping options.  U.S. Wallcovering has listened and we have just launched an e-commerce site to support our basic store at www.uswallcoveringonline.com.  The new store can be reached at http://www.fortheloveofwallpaper.com.  We still have a ways to go in terms of site enhancement and product category completion but it is a start. We welcome your feedback.

Lapland Here I Come

In my quest to seek out unique wallpaper patterns from around the world I am off to Lapland to check out the wallpaper offerings north of the Arctic Circle.  Might be hard to wallpaper a reindeer-hide tent but wallpaper would be a nice antidote for a landscape covered in white for much of the year.  I am told they are experiencing one of the coldest winter's in recent memory with average temperatures hovering around zero. There is a special Winter Market held every year for the past 400 years that draws people from around the world to delight in the beautiful landscape, shop for Sami people crafts, listen to lectures and view exhibitions, sample some reindeer meat, ride a dogsled, stay in an Ice Hotel and otherwise enjoy the special charm of Lapland in Winter.  I promise to share some of my white on white photos when I return.  While I am running about in my Michelin-man down coat this blog will be vacationing as well for two weeks.  When we come back it is off to the zoo snap some of those animal print patterns next to the real thing.

In the meantime, stay warm.


Lapland in Winter

The cold north beckons
With snow and ice I reckons

And temperatures that define cold
You have to be of a certain mold

To see beyond the frost and limited sun
This is not a place to sit on you bun

But rather a land where one is in constant motion
In order to prevent frostbite if one had such a notion

So, off I go loaded with objects of goose down
Enough to keep any a frozen face from a frown
