Let Your Walls Light Up the Room With LED Wallpaper

Who needs lamps when you can make your walls literally light up on their own? They can if you cover them with a coating of LED wallpaper. Wallpaper might be a little past its prime, but with a little infusion of tech and some neat geometric designs, maybe it's time to reconsider.

Made by Mestyle and shown off at this year's New York Design Week, these high-tech wallpapers have low-tech origins; they're all handmade. The rolls come in 22 unique designs, each with its own scientific or historic inspiration.

Rolls of the paper are available for purchase through retailers in a number of different countries, but the US doesn't seem to be one of them.
