For the most part, wallpaper (as opposed to "wallcovering") is the more widely familiar home-outfitting product. This may be due to the fact that it is a generally inexpensive material that many of us watched our parents hang - and rip down - throughout the years. It has been the finish of choice for elegant homes since the sixteenth century tapestries. Start your LEVEY wallcovering search.
Unbeknownst to many of us, alongside this residential finishing trend is wallpaper's more industrial cousin, the wallcovering. Originally developed as a protective wall finish in the 1970s, wallcoverings are typically consigned to commercial applications; and are designed to withstand the demands of highly-populated spaces such as lobbies, corridors, hotel suites, etc. View LEVEY wallcoverings by texture.
