Have you noticed the upholstered walls trend overtaking design blogs and Pinterest at the moment?
Particularly regarding commercial spaces, upholstered walls are certainly enjoying a fresh moment in the sun. But this trend was around long before it caught the internet’s attention afresh. Upholstered walls bring the luxurious touch of modern maximalism into our homes, playing on the romance of boutique hotels and elegant European estates.
Specialists have historically been required for upholstered walls in order to stretch fabric over battens attached to the wall. With a wide range of fabrics at your creative disposal, there’s no limit to the patterns, colours and textures that can be used to bring spaces to life. New technology is leading the way in wall upholstery, so there’s now even more potential in truly making your commercial space unique.
SNAPTEX acoustical fabric-wrapped panels are designed to bring the elegance of wall upholstery to ceilings and walls alike. With no limits to the size or shape of the panel and a site-installed nature, SNAPTEX panels ensure perfect fits through their specially designed interlocking jaw. This reduces the risk of fabric sagging or coming out of place, which is common in alternative friction-fit systems. With so much flexibility at their core, SNAPTEX panels can even be used to wrap around curves, bringing damage-resistant upholstery to rooms of all designs.
Here are our top tips for how to incorporate upholstered walls into your workspace, hospitality venue or home.
Upholstery doesn’t need to wrap around the entirety of a room in order to make an impact. Embrace the power of a statement wall in order to draw attention, create contrast or add a touch of luxury. This is also a great way to incorporate wall upholstery if you’re working with a smaller budget, or if you’re looking to incorporate multiple textures and materials into your design choices.
Who said artwork needed to be contained to framed pieces? Upholstered walls bring a wealth of opportunities for artistic expression with them. Whether you’re looking to embrace the old-world charm offered by specifically patterned textiles, to play with colour and light, or to use contrasting patterns for dramatic impact, upholstered walls can set your creative desires free.
Not only do upholstered walls look fantastic, but they bring practical benefits with them that make them perfect for commercial offices. Upholstered walls work as powerful insulation and also provide sound-deadening acoustics.
