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.

Revera – leading Canadian provider of accommodation and care for seniors, hosted the grand opening of its flagship location on Sunday, October 28th. Westney Gardens in Ajax, Ontario is a unique and innovative multi-unit rental residence featuring revolutionary technology and design. Toronto firm Van Der King Design Group Inc’s and LEVEY’s expertise were commissioned by Revera to design and produce functional, beautiful, decor within an elegant, forward thinking senior’s residence, where wallcovering as wayfinding leads design into a new client centric direction.

The result has been lauded as creating a helpful, happy, and unique environment that reflects decades of research by Revera, challenged to innovate the future of senior care. LEVEYwall treatment of the corridors and elevator lobby of the five-story retirement residence was conceived as a unique, non-repetitive wayfinding technique that would decorate the walls while providing a sense of well-being and opulence.

Class A Fire Rated and exceeding CAN/ULC S102.-10 – a life saving standard LEVEYart Digital developed over 100 classic images to make the team’s mega-graphic wallcovering design vision into a surface reality.

“Today’s designs for senior living reflect the unique needs of modern aging in place for those who want to maintain both prolonged independence and high quality of life,” says Silvana Levey, CEO of LEVEY.  “Revera and the production team considered many factors when choosing a design for the walls of Westney Gardens.  These included refinement of specific colours for optimum vision, texture for glare reduction and the full purpose of creating a sense of familiarity.” The high contrast print of black graphics atop the pale beige background provides optimum visibility without sacrificing colour harmony. The result ensures familiarity and comfort while elegantly providing a way for the residents of Westney Gardens to enjoy personally supported methods of identifying their space.

Since 1995, their high sustainability standards and accreditations, an exclusive roster of only the best quality brands of wall finishes, and a consultative sales staff offering keen attention to detail have  LEVEYconsistently defining direction for commercial wallcoverings of the future.

FINAL Press Release

LEVEY Art Digital has proudly exhibited at this year’s ARCHITECT@WORK Show in Toronto, Canada. This was an unprecedented North American opportunity to promote our innovative line of wallcovering and architectural finishes featuring impressive custom designs printed on environmentally-friendly substrates.

With an exclusive, inspiring format, LEVEY Art Digital sources and delivers wallcovering options that are truly green, natural and durable. As a business leader, we go beyond compliance to create new innovative standards for the wallcovering industry. And, we never sacrifice the originality and  beauty of the product in the printing process.

On display at the ARCHITECT@WORK Show, LEVEY Art Digital proudly presented three exceptional cutting-edge architectural finishes. This includes our Glass Textile Wall Treatments. Brilliantly printed digitally on glass fibre, these durable textiles are fabricated from natural silica sand, a sustainable resource.  This Optimus print can be scaled to virtually any size to seamlessly cover even the grandest of areas. With notable high quality durability, usage is ideal for high-traffic applications including those that may require regular cleaning and scrubbing. Featuring patented ‘Clean Air’ technology, these coverings eliminate up to fifty percent (50%) of formaldehyde through absorption and permanently trapping this harmful airborne compound.

Equally impressive are Wood Veneer Wall Finishes that can be digitally printed upon. These AA grade architectural wood veneers are domestic and exotic wood species from around-the-world.  Employing environmentally-conscious practices and using a patented log slicing process that increases log yield by up to three hundred percent (300%) as compared to traditional veneer production methods, this technology is proprietary. And worth noting: these wallcoverings are ‘Class A’ fire-rated in accordance with CAN/ULC S102.2 fire safety standards.

And finally, our Linen Window Film is a refreshing, self-adhesive transparent fabric that can be installed seamlessly on any type, shape or size of glass or non-porous, hard surface allowing a viewer to see out;  albeit, outsiders cannot see in. Digitally printed to our exact state-of-the-art  specifications, the Linen Window Film is currently available in fine, carefully curated colours to complement any interior design. This architectural treatment offers endless visual opportunities for commercial installations.

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
