What about Walls?

We are loving wall applications, whether it be paper, fabric, tile, panel surfaces or even hair on hide leather.  There are so many amazing options out there today.  Wallcoverings are a way to add brilliant texture, color and pattern to a space.  Here are a few ideas we think are just great.

Kyle Bunting's hair on hide patterns take on walls as well as the flooring they are known for.  Pictured above is Jetstream applied as wallcovering behind a reception desk. 

John Mahoney's Mota Shang in color Riesling.  This large graphic tone on tone pattern creates subtle drama with a touch of glam.

Creation Baumann's Lorien fabric which can be paperbacked for wall application.  Using textiles on walls creates such great warmth.
modularArts panel surfaces build textural shadows from their Mineral Composite material.  You can see the "Flo" pattern applied at the Seattle Aquarium!

And for fun, (couldn't resist the yellow wellies and umbrella to remind us of our Seattle winters) here is Daydream from Hygge and West, which you can find at Hermitage (here in Seattle, but now entirely online)  

Now look around and imagine the possibilities for your walls!
