Brooklyn Tins Merci

MERCI opened in march 2009 in the arty neighborhood of Haut-Marais in Paris. More than just a retail project, it is a unique place, a destination store with 3 cafés and restaurants as well a very rich programme of exhibitions and scenographies that made the reputation of Merci.
Jean-Luc Colonna d’Istria of MERCI: “In 2009, MERCI selected this vintage ceiling tins as a décor concept for the Parisien store. Since the opening, there is no one day whithout seing a visitor taking pictures of the MERCI tin counter or asking to buy it. This phenomenon has given MERCI the idea to get together with NLXL to design and market the wallpaper collection Brooklyn Tins.”

Historically, tin ceillings were introduced to North America as an affordable alternative to the exquisite plaster work used in European homes. It was between 1890 and 1930 that thin rolled tin-plates were being mass-produced. Tin ceilings were traditionally painted white to give the appearance of hand- carved or molded plaster. But, today the irregularity and the aging give all the appeal to this American architecture icon.
