LIST Loves John Mahoney Signature Rugs & Wallpapers




Original pattern on pattern designs, sculptural surfaces, and surprising color palettes. Inspired by kimono stencils, power tools, the debut collection features weeping cherry blossoms, detailed chrysanthemums, tribal geometrics, and urban grids.



John also turns an artful eye to wallpaper designs with trellising modern patterns, with always sophisticated, subtle and bold color ways.




  "The new Zhora pattern is named after an android in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner from 1984."





  "My early drawings of Zhora were also inspired by a set of flatware produced by Liberty around 1903."







  "The boldness, simplicity, and naturalism of Japanese woodblock prints struck a chord in turn-of-the-century European aesthetes. They realized that nature no longer had to be tamed. Instead: it had to be unleashed. And so they gave birth to the visual vocabulary we now call Art Nouveau. I happened to be working on this design in the spring, and I think that the allium pushing up in the garden were also sprouting in my imagination."
