Favorite Finishes: New Wallcovering

We received a new wallcovering card in the mail the other day from Wolf-Gordon for some new patterns and colorways in their Infinity line of recycled polyester wall coverings. Loving this bold chevron pattern, Adire.  It’s retro and clean but also makes a statement.

Looks like a great option for hospitality, bold office spaces, or even an adventurous retail space. I love that it comes in bold colorways with contrasting colors, subtle pastel variations, and deep rich jewel tones.

This product is 100% recycled polyester with recycled backing, for an overall post-consumer Recycled Content of 20%. It also has custom color capability for 300 yards. Check it out!
