Are you looking for a new way to dress up your walls? Look no further! There are plenty of fresh, creative, and sustainable ideas to make your walls and spaces more stylish and unique.


In the age of environmental awareness, it's no surprise that designers and manufacturers are increasingly exploring eco-friendly alternatives to design and produce their new collections — from their materials composition, using rapidly renewable and recycled content, to their commitment to sustainability in their fabrication process.


The “green trend” is well underway in the wallcovering industry.

Yes, that's true! The wallcovering sector has recognized the growing demand for eco-friendly and sustainable options, and designers and manufacturers are increasingly offering more viable choices for consumers.

One of the most significant trends in the industry is the use of bamboo, cork (tree bark), straw, raffia, and the new sensation “made from recycled paper” — all of which have lower environmental impacts than traditional products like vinyl and synthetic fabrics. These natural materials are not only “green” but also offer a unique aesthetic that can add character and texture to a room.

In addition to eco-friendly materials, manufacturers are also employing sustainable manufacturing processes that reduce waste, energy consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions. For example, some companies are using water-based inks and dyes and reducing the use of toxic chemicals in their production processes.

 

Let’s take a look at some amazing designers using a conscious approach to wallcovering design and manufacturing!

 

I love the bright colors and intricate patterns and designs of the family-run business Little Greene – UK. Furthermore, Little Greene offers a beautiful palette of eco-friendly, paint colors to coordinate with their wallcoverings.



“Little Greene, is an independent, British paint manufacturer, committed to the socially and environmentally responsible production of high-quality paints and wallpapers. Their paints and wallpapers represent 300 years of decorative history. Referencing the key periods of interior design, from the 17th century to the late 20th century.” — Little Greene





 

Phillip Jeffries – USA offers a huge selection of high quality made with natural fiber, and plant base wall coverings — very impressive. I appreciate the fact that most of their collections are always stocked or have very short lead times.

Lori Weitzner Wallpapers – USA is one of the first to introduce recycled and rapidly renewable content to her assemblage. She created a collection made from recycled newspapers, cinema posters, and world maps. So original and environmentally conscious! Weitzner Studio also designs coordinating fabrics.



“Collaborate with sources large and small from all over the world, from a historic mill in Italy to a grassroots operation in the mountains of Nepal. We think macro and micro, delving into the details of color, material, and construction. Balancing practical elements with aesthetic concerns, we bring products to market that are beautiful, functional, and imbued with a sense of soul.” — Lori Weitzner

 

Bobbi Beck – UK is all about sustainable luxury. Their beliefs and principles are: “A greener model — A greener product — A greater impact”


They have a unique way of integrating biophilic design into their creations. Take a look at their amazing murals collection.
