New wallpaper from Hygge & West In their first collaboration in a decade, Hygge & West has teamed up with design studio Patch NYC to create a new line of moody and fantastical prints. The collection has five new patterns, each with four to six colorways, and if you shop on International Women’s Day, Hygge & West will donate a portion of the proceeds to the National Women’s Law Center. hyggeandwest.com
