Art in Focus: Unusual Wallcoverings

Up, down, all around: wallcovering puts art in unexpected, wow-worthy spaces.


The transformative potential of wallcoverings means a little art can go a long way. Something as simple as a city map becomes a glamorous modern take on Deco-era pressed tin ceiling tiles when printed on Gold Flash wallcovering, as seen below at Renaissance Harlem. From eco-friendly Terralon to heavy-duty vinyl substrates, our Art Consultants are experts at pairing incredible art with the perfect surface for your space.
