IDSwest Sneak Peeks

Posted on September 16, 2014 by Jared

The start of Vancouver’s Interior Design Week is only a few days away! There are lots of design events taking place around the city with IDSwest being the week’s highlight.

The Interior Design Show West at the Vancouver Convention Centre is a four-day event that features the latest trends, ideas and products for your home. There are dozens of exhibitors, celebrity designers, speaker series and design exhibits to inspire your next project. This year, you’ll find us in booth #1109 with some of our most popular eco-friendly wall surfaces.

Here are a few sneak peeks of what you’ll find at our booth:

Banana Wall Tiles

Banana Wall Tiles

These shiny wall tiles are our newest tiles made from the bark of sustainably harvested banana trees. These fun eco-friendly wall tiles are available in a variety of different textures and colours. They can be mixed and matched to create stunning walls.

Architectural Wall Panels

Ecor Architectural Panels

These are non-toxic (formaldehyde free!) architectural wall panels made with 100% recycled materials. The metallic finish includes real metal particles that will rust overtime. You can use them to build non load-bearing walls or to decorate existing walls.

Teak Wood Wall Tiles

teak-wood-wall-tilesImported from Brazil, these FSC-certified mosaic wall tiles are made from Brazilian Teak trees. To create durable tiles, the wood undergoes an safe preservative treatment called thermally modified timber. Using only heat and pressure in the absence of oxygen, the thermally modified teak is resistant to insects, highly durable and safe for use in any room in your home.

We look forward to seeing you and discussing your design project at IDSwest!
