The Lenfest board chair just launched a sweet tool for making wall art at his day job

In his minimal amount of free time, Dr. Keith Leaphart chairs the board at the Lenfest Foundation — he has since 2013. But the physician’s day job is heading up longtime local design and print shop Replica Creative.

Now, Leaphart is adding another venture to his portfolio: an ecommerce platform called Wallsome. The tool allows users to upload photos directly from their phone and turn them into wall decor. Leaphart says it’s like “Instagram for your walls.”

“Taking your photos directly from your camera roll, you can upload them to templates or create your own customized wall decor,” Leaphart said. “It’s nondestructive to the wall’s surface. You can make over an entire room.”

Technically an extension of Replica, Wallsome has been in the works for about two years. The platform was inspired, Leaphart said, by how many wall murals he saw transforming retail environments.
