Brooklyn Toile is a collaboration with Revolver New York, a hospitality branding and marketing collective, and Beastie Boys vocalist/drummer Mike Diamond. Diamond envisioned wallpaper for his new townhouse celebrating the unique character and culture of Brooklyn, and contacted Vincent Ficarra, founder of Revolver New York, to bring the design to life. Ficarra and Diamond decided on a toile reminiscent of French-style 18th-century scenic patterns, incorporating sentimental landmarks and key locations from Diamond’s life in Brooklyn. Ficarra and partner Adela Qersaqi captured all angles of life in the King’s borough from Coney Island and subways to low riders and turntables, even Notorious B.I.G.
