Wolf-Gordon unveils Refractions, part of the Haven Collection, by Patty Madden. This addition to the Haven Brand features a wide range of intricate prints, rich palettes and the age-old handmade artisan character for which Madden is best known. The design concept behind Refractions focuses on visual texture in an exquisitely reinterpreted collection of historical motifs, botanicals and backgrounds. Fresh layering of textures, patterns and classic motifs allow the intricate designs to span across market segments, with particular applicability in hospitality.

Roos International introduces VERASTONE®, a collection of hand-painted faux finished wall coverings with multiple application possibilities. While there are several designs of VERASTONE, they all share a common inspiration: stone. Some appear to be carved out of stone. Others appear as if they were painted on stone. Each VERASTONE design adorns the room with a luxurious look. This collection is comprised of five distinctive faux finished designs offered in a variety of elegant colors.

Bold, clean lines and cool graphics characterize a stunning new line of tile for Ann Sacks by tile artist, Andy Blick. Working with a large-scale format that is attention-getting without being brash, these tiles display confident artistry and impeccable fabrication. The patterns are simple and geometric, but the tiles make use of a beautiful 36-color palette and inventive finishes such as crackle, gloss, matte and satin to bring depth and beauty to each piece. The end result is an installation that looks like a work of art.

At the request of designers and architects for fashion-forward designs, MDC Wallcoverings introduces the Averlino line. Averlino consists of seven new handcrafted designs that render the look of hand-applied plasters, iron gilding, crackled fresco and textured fabrics. Heavy background textures set the stage for dramatic raised print motifs and tactile interest. Pearlized and metallic accents add a touch of elegance. All handcrafted patterns are made to order and are printed on breathable non-woven substrate.

180 Walls™ is a patent-pending, self-adhesive textile wall covering from Milliken and Company that hangs without paste; experiences no wet movement, shrinkage or corner peel; and can be removed years later without damage to walls. 180 Walls bring texture to vertical surfaces. The elegant colors and patterns range from traditional to contemporary and are suitable for applications in healthcare, office, retail and hospitality. All patterns have been developed to minimize seam visibility and eliminate the need for pattern match. Stain-repelling and mold-inhibiting features have been added to ensure ongoing ease of maintenance.

Arc-Com introduces three new exciting wall surface designs: Tangiers Damask, Tangiers Stripe and Tangiers. Emulating an antiqued distressed wall fresco, the striking wall surface design of Tangiers is available in an extensive palette of 26 colorways. Utilizing the distinctive ground in Tangiers, its companion patterns—Tangiers Stripe, a 5-inch bold cabana stripe, and Tangiers Damask, a hand painted scroll-like design—display a two-color print technique and are both offered in 13 unique colorations. All three wall covering designs are Type II/20 oz./PCO Construction.

Introducing "The Look" by Norwall Wallcoverings. Inspired by urban lifestyles and loft living, The Look flaunts large scale motifs that are fun, young and hip. With 103 designs to choose from, it is an ideal collection for those lured by the romance of wide open interiors, spectacular views, and raw spaces, including high ceilings and exposed brick. The collection has a distinctly metropolitan appeal and a certain chic that comes from the use of trendy colors and overscale geometric patterns. These patterns are ideal for sweeping accent walls, giving your space powerful charisma without overwhelming it. 

The New Glory Collection from Villeroy and Boch fondly harkens back to the inimitable glamour of eras past, when lavish decorative elements such as tassels and fringes were de rigueur and interiors brimmed with twinkling chandeliers and grandiose furniture upholstered in richly colored, velvety brocades. At the same time, New Glory is in sync with the current trend that finds ceramic tiles masterfully imitating fine wallpapers, textiles, and even wood finishes—combining a soignée look with a sumptuous textural quality.
