This spring, two Dallas creatives and long-time friends launched Wallborn Collective, a line of wallpaper, fabric, and throw pillows in bold colors and graphic patterns. Marcie Miller and Paula Arroyo met in 2002 while working in corporate retail, but it would take many years for the pair to discover their mutual passion for home furnishings, wallpaper, and color that inspired the partnership. Every aspect of the venture is collaborative, from the name itself (an amalgamation of their hometowns of Walla Walla, Washington, and Dearborn Heights, Michigan) to the creative process: Arroyo, who has a background in textiles, creates the eclectic prints, while Miller, a product developer, makes the designs a reality. Their debut collection, which is available to purchase through their website, features nature-driven patterns in complementary schemes printed on high-quality, consciously crafted paper and textiles. “When you see [the design] all come together, it really comes to life,” Miller says. “I think that’s what sets us apart.”—Emma McRae.
