New York, NY, June 3, 2013 -- Known for her easy, elegant, everyday design style and real life one-day makeovers on NBC's Open House, interior designer Libby Langdon has partnered with Casart Coverings to create her line of removable and reusable wallcoverings as part of her growing collections of branded home furnishings products.

"I am absolutely thrilled to be designing my collection for Casart Coverings," says Langdon. "I love this product - it is so smart and innovative. I work with many clients who want the WOW factor of wallpaper, but are put-off by its permanence and labor-intensive installation. This amazing peel-and-stick wallcovering allows folks to have fun with color and pattern in an easy, low-commitment, temporary way. You literally just start at the top of your wall, pull the backing sheet off and smooth with your hands as you tools necessary! If you need to, you can simply lift and reposition, without frustrating buckling and bubbling. I believe design should be accessible and fun and all of my products, from my upholstered furniture to my rugs, are based on direct input from my clients who don't want to sacrifice style for comfort, practicality and ease."

Langdon will debut her wallcovering line this month at Holiday House Hamptons, a luxury designer showhouse sponsored by Hamptons Cottages & Gardens magazine whose proceeds benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. One of 22 top designers invited to participate, Langdon's design will feature her wallcovering along with a luxury runner from her Libby Langdon for Tiger Rug Collection and her Hamptons Ocean Photo's by Libby Langdon.

"Holiday House Hamptons is an amazing opportunity to launch my wallcovering line. This showhouse supports such an important cause and I really wanted my design to be something special," Langdon says. "And since showhouses are short-term, I can use my wallcovering knowing I will be able to easily remove it without damaging the walls. Plus, it's reusable, so I will star it in another project, which is true sustainability!" The Bridgehampton, NY showhouse is open to the public from June 23 - July 21, where media will be invited to preview the Libby Langdon for Casart Coverings Collection.

"The timing is also perfect for my partnership with Casart Coverings because I am shooting my own new television show, Daykeover with Libby Langdon! My show is an interior design makeover that happens in less than 12 hours. I'm working in one of my actual client's homes each segment, so it's not just thrown together for TV. The designs have to be real, livable and beautiful...but also fuss-free for the fast pace of finishing it all in one day! So when Casart approached me to design a peel-and-stick wallcovering for them, it couldn't have been a better fit!"

Casart Coverings' founder Ashley Spencer considered Langdon for her aesthetic as well as her upbeat personality and passion. "We love Libby's elegant, everyday style and her enthusiastic energy is most inspiring. We are so excited to be working with her," says Spencer. "We first met Libby about one and a half years ago. We attended her exciting lecture at the fall 2011 High Point Furniture Market, where Libby was introducing her upholstered furniture collection. My mother and business partner Lorre Lei Jackson had seen Libby's work prior in her book, Libby Langdon's Small Space Solutions. Libby is just as effervescent in person as she is on television! She made our first trip to High Point the most memorable. We knew that Libby would bring fresh designs to us and would also truly appreciate our concept for a self-adhesive wallcovering that can be easily repositioned, removed and reused! Casart provides designers, home owners, hospitality, retailers, renters and restaurants new and creative ways to use wallcoverings to transform their rooms as often as they like, anyway they desire. The result is a wallcovering that is like a changeable slipcover for your wall."

The Libby Langdon Wallcovering Collection for Casart is made up of classic lines with updated twists and includes bold geometrics and scroll-like patterns, which are each available in four different colorways in small, medium and large rolls as well as stair risers, backsplashes, borders and bookshelf backings. Libby's wallcoverings are designed to work together with her Upholstered Furniture Collection for Braxton Culler as well as her Rug Collection for Tiger Rug. You may view the The Libby Langdon Collection for Casart Coverings on her website and are available to purchase via the Casart Coverings website
