Wood Inspired Commercial Wallcoverings

When Nature Meets Vinyl
Texture, patterning and colouration of natural wood is a desirable wall finish for which other materials such as commercial vinyl wallcovering and its sister product – 3M Di-Noc self-adhesive film – add diversity and numerous additional applications. For example, when bacteria resistance is a concern, such as in healthcare interiors, then a wood inspired wallcovering that can be cleaned with commercial cleaners is an excellent option. LEVEY offers multiple wood patterned wallcoverings that maintain the aesthetic beauty and textural qualities of natural wood.

Endless Creative Selections
Apart from providing an interior-exterior connection, wood inspired vinyl wallcoverings and films can be incorporated into and enhance any design style. From white washed to ebony and exotic to domestic species, designers can find a wood inspired wallcovering that can be successfully integrated into most spaces. The sublime option is to design a custom pattern that can be digitally printed onto a variety of textured media. LEVEY prides itself in turning your wood defined vision into a wallcovering reality.

Cost Saving Measures
The properties of vinyl wallcovering allow it to be used in diverse applications, making it imminently suitable and budget friendly in challenging spaces. For instance, some 3M Di-Noc Film products are designed to be used for exterior applications, providing a wood look that is weather resistant.

Where wood designs in wall finishes are desired, vinyl wallcovering can offer significant economies of scale. Where project budgets are limited; wood patterned wallcovering is a practical solution that does not compromise aesthetics.

LEVEY also has several wood look, quick ship wallcovering options that can save you time. These products are locally stocked and can ship to you within 48 hours. You can also take advantage of our free shipping offer by ordering directly online at SHOP LEVEY.

CLEANABLE WALLCOVERING: Hotel Omni Charlotte

CLEANABLE WALLCOVERING: HOTEL OMNI CHARLOTTE

As Levey prioritizes the health and safety of our community, we continue to follow our clients’ projects as they adapt to the “new normal”.

Featured this week is Hotel Omni Charlotte, a client project that has recently implemented CDC-Certified Enhanced Cleaning Procedures. Thanks to our cleanable, commercial grade wallcovering, staff members can keep hotel guests safe and protected without worrying about damaging surfaces.

Cleanable, commercial grade wallcovering

Completed in May of 2018 – Omni Hotels & Resorts commissioned Canadian design firm Moncur Design Associates Inc to transform the 369 room Omni Charlotte including guestrooms, corridors and public spaces.

To support their vision, Moncur Design Associates Inc partnered with Levey to make use of multiple designs from our vast and exclusive selection of wallcoverings. Two patterns from Levey’s wallcovering collections alongside a custom wood vinyl from LEVEYart Digital are implemented into the hotel’s design.

Washable and cleanable, these Levey commercial wallcovering solutions help generate a safer environment for all hotel guests. With Len Tex’s Aqua-Clear 3.0 as the coating, these vinyl designs have an excellent scrubbability and are resistant to antimicrobial commercial cleaning agents.

Popolo Wallcovering by DeNovo Wall in colour Tinsel Town

Featured throughout the premise of Omni Charlotte – in the hotel’s various guestrooms, lobbies, hallways and more – is the pattern Popolo by DeNovo Wall in colour Tinsel Town.

Thematically, the design team was inspired by the city of Charlotte – a banking hotspot with a history rich in precious metals. The imperfect grid-like pattern of Popolo features a luxurious silver-toned metallic mylar finish, which successfully nods to the glamour, elegance and class associated with this vision. Meanwhile, Popolo’s off-white base acts as a neutral element that
compliments and fuses with other aspects of the hotel’s design.

From an application standpoint, this mylar laminated wallcovering is durable and washable. Its antimicrobial surface prevents the growth of bacteria and allows for a better sanitization process. This proves especially important in a hospitality environment, where the application is subject to high occupancy turnover in the heart of a major city.

Steam Trunk Wallcovering from York Contract’s Restoration Elements collection

Utilized in the ensuites throughout the hotel, the unique geometric pattern of Steam Trunk from York Contract’s Restoration Elements collection is an intriguing visual accent. The design serves as a cohesive factor in uniting other materials while paying homage to the city of Charlotte.

This durable Type II Commercial Vinyl Wallcovering was specified in the shade of Optic White – an off white, simulated silk weave base with a diamond-like pattern. Applied mostly to washroom walls, this commercial wallcovering allows for extensive cleaning protocols without causing damage to its low lustre silver metallic finish.

Digital wallcovering with a realistic wood print

The designers further accented the walls of Omni Charlotte with warm wood. The design intends to deliver a sense of warmth and comfort hotel guests, as well as incorporating nature in a centrally located hotel.

Mimicking the finish of natural wood, this custom accent wallcovering stands as a commercial grade vinyl wallcovering and was developed in a collaboration between Moncur Design Associates Inc and LEVEYart Digital. It prevents the formation of mould, mildew and bacteria, protecting guests against COVID-19.

By specifying our custom digital wallcovering with a realistic wood print, the designers were able to achieve optimal durability and attain the specific look of wood that was desired.

Wallcovering vs. Wallpaper: A Breakdown

What are wallcoverings?

Verano Wallcovering from Levey Wallcoverings and Architectural Finishes

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.

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.

More and more, homeowners are turning to the superior quality and luxe effect of wallcovering for their home decorating projects.

Excellent for backsplashes, hallways, entrances and/or wherever one is looking to add a beautiful and durable finish, wallcovering is an elegant alternative to wallpaper and paint.

Customize your wallcovering

As well, with the advancements of digital printing, there is no end of choices, from custom design, scale, colour, substrates, etc.

You can also use your own designs and photos, provided that the artwork is owned by or licensed to you and meets the image standards.
