Benjamin Moore and The Alpha Workshops Wallpaper Capsule Collection

Engineered with design professionals in mind, the Alpha Workshops Capsule collection includes 15 bespoke, hand-painted wallpapers including three premium Benjamin Moore paints, including CENTURY.

Benjamin Moore and The Alpha Workshops Wallpaper Capsule Collection: curated artworks with painted textures and patterns that look like a city skyline

Benjamin Moore has debuted a Wallpaper Capsule Collection of five patterns, realized in three colourways—including several CENTURY paint colours inclusive of the line’s signature Soft Touch Matte Finish. The Capsule Collection is a collaboration with artisans from the nonprofit decorative arts studio The Alpha Workshops.

"The Collection speaks to the basic colour groups of primaries and neutrals, but all with a layer of glamour," said Ellen O'Neill, Benjamin Moore Director of Strategic Design Intelligence. "Benjamin Moore premium products coupled with the care and precision by Alpha's team, create captivating prints in a palette that can be easily mixed and matched."

A single roll of wallpaper can take a full day to create. Our five-pattern collection includes:

All wallpapers are made-to-order. Home décor enthusiasts can even select their own colour schemes for a more custom approach.


An Artistic Approach

Signs of each artists' hands find a way into each one of the five wallpaper designs. You see it in the sumptuous tactility of dripped paint, in the still-visible imprint of the crafter's sponge and in the diaphanous layers of shimmering colour, achieved by using the lightest touch.

In addition to Benjamin Moore colours realized in Aura® Interior paint and the company’s metallic Studio Finishes® line, CENTURY plays a dynamic role in the patterns, including the use of these colours:

  • TRAVERTINE S3
  • MICA Z2
  • MORGANITE R4
  • MARCASITE Q1
  • BEAUVILLON U1
  • CARDAMOM U2
  • BLACK CURRANT T4
  • AMETHYST R6
  • QUINCE O2
  • RAW FLAX Y6
  • SÉMILLON Y7
  • OBSIDIAN Q5
  • DARJEELING Z5
  • SERAPHINITE P5
  • VIRIDIAN O6
  • TERRE VERTE O5
  • SERPENTINE O3

The Alpha Workshops is the nation’s only nonprofit organization providing decorative arts education and employment to adults and youth with disabilities and other vulnerabilities.
