There are more options than ever for dressing up vertical surfaces like panels, privacy screens, or architectural elements in commercial, office, or hospitality settings. Designers are turning to durable and versatile fabrics that can help minimize sound, reflect light, and are easy to clean and install as well as provide tactile and textural elements to a space. The Verona collection from Pallas Textiles - which honors the romantic setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet with its four-pattern collection - is made specifically for wrapped panel applications, suitable for any vertical surface, and can be cleaned with bleach. Brenano's Comet has a pebbled texture and a touch of iridescence, passes more than 40,000 double-rubs-abrasion testing, and can be used for wrapped paneling when treated with an FR backing or a topical finish formulated to pass ASTM E-84 (unadhered). Arena, a woven wallcovering from the Bonjour collection by Knoll Textiles, is made with 50 percent polyester and 50 percent olefin for colorfastness and durability; it is also bleach-cleanable and finished with Crypton INCASE for stain resistance, and is ideal for direct-glue and wrapped-panel applications.
