Wallcovering Considerations

I love wallcoverings because it gives this added skin to a wall that gives dimension.  Anything that has more dimension I love, because the dimension is what you build your layers of visual information off of.

The wallcovering right now (and this probably is a trend right now) it’s very current. Sort of the textuals are back, the naturals are back, which is wonderful they were very popular about 20 years ago. And there are a few companies like Phillip Jeffries that just do an amazing job.  So you can get heavily textured natural wallcovering, and then it can be superfine, like an almost a silk on the wall. So depending on what we’re trying to do, they are a great vehicle to add dimension and texture.

The one thing with wallcovering you have to be careful of is how it seams. Because it can look terrific in a panel, but when you start to get a whole bunch of panels next which other you need to know what it’s going to do. So we always have a sample, we will buy a roll and have our wallcovering installer do an actual sample so the client can sign off on the seaming. Because some clients are fine seeing seams and some clients or not, so you just need to be aware of that.
