SARKOS was founded in 2015 by spouses Stephanie Dedes Reimers, an artist with a lifetime of experience in fine and commercial painting and an obsession to create intriguing atmospheres inspired by nature, through good design - and Adam, a designer and builder with the keenest eye for simple, but highly specialized design, and all the capabilities in the world to bring the ideas to life.

We make hand-painted wallpapers that add luxury, texture and beauty to any
interior setting. All of our papers are inspired by the natural landscape of Greece, from the strata of earth beneath our feet to the starry cosmos above.

In our Brooklyn, NY studio, we paint each panel by hand from start to finish, and the resulting variations in color and texture are what set our papers apart. Without mechanical repetition of traditional wallpaper, our paper has a life of its own, and each installation is one of a kind.
In the ENd, it’s all about feeling, space for thought and what comes through each hand-painted panel and each hand-built piece.
