FriendlyWall Design Ideas
New Colours, More Possibilities

FriendlyWall solid wood panels are extremely versatile. We’ve installed them on walls, ceilings, light fixtures and cabinetry. Our most recently installation in Langley is a creative use of this popular wall surface:

Functional FriendlyWall Storage Nook

The storage nook behind the reception desk for the new Avisar Chartered Accountants office is custom designed and built to be both beautiful and functional.

FriendlyWall TV Backdrop

Providing continuity throughout the office, the boardroom also features FriendlyWall solid wood panels. Here the surface is used behind the TV.

Project Profile: Avisar Chartered Accountants

Posted on March 6, 2014 by Jared

Avisar Chartered Accountants recently moved to a new office space in Langley, BC. To transform their new digs, they hired the design and build team at Aura Office Environments.

Aura asked us to supply and install Finium FriendlyWall – one of our FSC-certified wall surfaces made from solid hardwood. We were happy to work our magic to help Aura create a professional yet warm new space for Avisar.

The Eco Floor Store installed over 120 sq. ft. of Finium FriendlyWall in walnut on the custom designed feature walls in the reception area and boardroom. Finishing details, including colour matched moldings, custom electrical covers and walnut veneer panels, create a beautiful seamless look.
