Alexandria , Virginia (PressExposure) June 20, 2013 -- Libby Langdon premieres her wallcoverings design at the Holiday House Hamptons.
Casart Coverings is delighted that New York based interior designer Libby Langdon has partnered with us to create her collection of removable and reusable wallcovering. Known for her easy, elegant, everyday design style and real life one-day makeovers on NBC's Open House, we knew it would be a perfect match. Libby brings fresh geometric designs and also truly appreciates our concept for a self-adhesive wallcovering that can be easily installed with a peel-and-stick application, repositioned and reused. Casart provides designers, home owners, hospitality, retailers, renters and restaurants new and creative ways to use wallcoverings to transform their rooms as often as they like, anyway they desire. The result is a wallcovering that is like a changeable slipcover for your wall.
"I am absolutely thrilled to be designing my collection for Casart Coverings," says Langdon. "I love this product - it is so smart and innovative. I work with many clients who want the WOW factor of wallpaper, but are put-off by its permanence and labor-intensive installation. This amazing peel-and-stick wallcovering allows folks to have fun with color and pattern in an easy, low-commitment, temporary way. You literally just start at the top of your wall, pull the backing sheet off and smooth with your hands as you go...no tools necessary! If you need to, you can simply lift and reposition! I believe design should be accessible and fun and all of my products, from my upholstered furniture to my rugs, are based on direct input from my clients who don't want to sacrifice style for comfort, practicality and ease."
Casart Coverings offers Langdon's designs in small, medium and large rolls as well as stair risers, backsplashes, borders and bookshelf backings. The collection includes four bold geometrics and scroll-like patterns in classic lines with an updated twist. Each design is available in four different colorways with the option to customize and has the added advantage of vertical or horizontal installation. The Libby Langdon Collection for Casart Coverings is designed to work together with her Upholstered Furniture Collection for Braxton Culler as well as her Rug Collection for Tiger Rug. The Libby Langdon Collection for Casart Coverings will be available to purchase via the Casart Coverings website: [http://www.casartcoverings.com/libbylangdon.html].
Langdon is one of 22 top designers invited to participate this June at Holiday House Hamptons, a luxury designer Showhouse sponsored by Hamptons Cottages & Gardens magazine. The proceeds benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. At this event, Langdon will debut her wallcovering line along with a complimentary rug from her Libby Langdon for Tiger Rug Collection. She is extremely excited about this upcoming event.
"Holiday House Hamptons is an amazing opportunity to launch my Casart line. This Showhouse supports such an important cause and I really wanted my design to be something special," Langdon says. "And since showhouses are short-term, I can use my wallcovering knowing I will be able to easily remove it without damaging the walls. Plus, it's reusable, so I will feature it in another project, which is truly an example of sustainability!"
Langdon believes, "The timing is also perfect for my partnership with Casart Coverings because I am shooting my own new television show, Daykeover with Libby Langdon! My show is an interior design makeover that happens in less than 12 hours. I'm working in one of my actual client's homes each segment, so it's not just thrown together for TV. The designs have to be real, livable and beautiful...but also fuss-free for the fast pace of finishing it all in one day! So when Casart collaborated with me on the collection, it couldn't have been a better fit!"
The Bridgehampton, NY Showhouse is open to the public from June 23 - July 21.
