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.
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.
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.
