About


Make a statement with tradition.

Krane Home is a line of luxury handmade wallpapers, fabrics, and home accessories created from Sharon Lee's artwork inspired by her heritage as a Korean American artist.

The word Krane marries the crane in flight with Korean art. In homage to this elegant bird that symbolizes longevity, our designs modernize traditional Korean forms with a classic and timeless American aesthetic.



American design rooted in Korean heritage.

At the Krane Home studio in Los Angeles, our creative process always begins with a pencil and paintbrush and ends with the highest quality products handmade by artisans right here at home.

Korean American artist Sharon Lee takes each design through an imaginative process that involves hand-carved block printing, textural brushwork, and even mural sized artwork. Classic yet statement-making designs reinterpret traditional Korean art and forms from nature into vibrant works of art that elevate the meaning of home. The Krane Home aesthetic, informed by the artist’s heritage, is purely American.

With over 100 wallpapers and fabrics offered in the line, Krane Home textiles are the interior designer’s ultimate patterned palette, whether the client prefers design that ignites conversation or soft subtle textures.

Through our hand driven process, quality with beautiful character is our core mission. Each roll of wallpaper and yard of fabric is entirely unique. We only work with the best hand-screened printers in Los Angeles, our textile grounds produced and hand dyed in the US, and our linen cloths are created from flax fields in Belgium.
