On December 3rd, I ended my night at Alison Nelson's Chocolate Bar in the West Village to check out graphic designer Ed Roth's Stencil 101 Décor book launch. Stencil 101 Décor contains ten oversized repeat pattern stencils for walls, furniture, floors, and more.
Based in Brooklyn, Ed founded Stencil1 in 2004 and has received praise from Martha Stewart, The New York Times, ReadyMade and Country Living for his iconic, reusable stencils.
Alison Nelson and Ed Roth have collaborated on a few projects, in which Roth had designed the packaging of a chocolate gift set with his signature stencils. In spring 2009, Roth stenciled the tabletops at the Eighth Avenue Chocolate Bar location.
