This outdoor wallpaper is designed to be durable. The waterproof, fadeproof and mildewproof paper is securely sewn onto a durable base paper that can be nailed or stapled onto an outdoor surface. Q. Do you have a favorite piece of furniture? A. Most of mine is old and secondhand and doesn’t have a name tag, but I do have a lovely office desk made by my friend Jennifer Newman. It’s plain, thick oak for the top with bright yellow metal legs, and it's teamed with a vintage Eames office chair — the only one I can manage to sit all day in.
