3-D-WALL-PANELS_300I am always on the lookout for interior design products that make an impact.  In visiting several trade shows already this year, it is evident that floor coverings across the board are organic and natural-looking, and interiors in general will be following that same prescription.  So what about walls?

I discovered a California-based company, Contempo Living, while cruising the exhibit halls at Surfaces 2013 and absolutely made the decision then and there to share specific product information with you.  One of the products they carry are 3-D glue on wall panels.  Most of the designs offered are organic in nature and complemented what I was seeing in floor coverings.  These panels are lightweight and made from natural plant fiber material.  The 3-D patterns are sculpted and interesting, simulating waves, dunes, blocks, branches, waterfalls and circles.

If you are assuming that there is something within the collections to satisfy everything from contemporary to traditional designs, you are right.  I cannot think of a better way to add character to a room, than designing with these creative panels.  It can be a DIY project, and the instructions ( are clearly stated and easy to execute.

One of the display walls at the trade show was airbrushed in tints of reds fading to light peach.  Given that example, if there is any “artist” in you, you can certainly make your walls an original piece of art.  They do recommend applying a primer coat of paint before you create your finished paint color(s).

I am so intrigued with this product.  And, from what I researched on-line after discovering these panels, this looks to be a very affordable project.  What a great way to get creative and add 3-D character to your rooms.  Let me know what you think…
