Fly on the Wall

B+N Industries is in the business of making walls come to life. Their Iconic Panels are a whimsical approach to style. The panels can be painted, illuminated with colorful light - the possibilities are endless. And to boot Iconic Panels are also available with LEED-qualified, fire-rated, or water-resistant cores. Pictured below is Carnaby and Chinoiserie.

Here are a few other options from Inhabitat, Wall Flats . They are made from 100% bamboo pulp, meaning no trees were harmed in the making of this product. How refresing, a sustainable wallcovering that is free of chemicals and will not be a burden to the environment at the end of it's lifecycle, since the tiles are 100% bio-degradable.

Now here is my favorite wall application Sculptural Panels from modularArts®. This relief sculptural wall art is made of a cementious mineral composite that is virtually fire resistant and free of formaldehyde (no harmfull off-gassing). Professional installation should be left up to a drywall contractor. Pictured below is Vortex Bloom by Lora Leonard and Dune - from The Seagate Hotel in Delray Beach, Florida .

modularArts® now offers their sculptural wall tiles in a smaller size for smaller scale projects. These 16" square tiles can be painted and are designed for tighter areas. They may be more appropriate for a residential application. My only comment is this...please, oh please don't over use these tiles. We don't need to repeat the mistake our parents made with faux wood paneling in the 70's! Visit the modularArts® on-line store here.
