Tiles made from leather scraps

Epitomizing luxury and elegance, leather has been used for a long time as a building material for niche interiors owing to the richness and glamorous feel it gives. But many of us are not aware that even leather scraps and pieces, obtained from car seats, furniture, tanneries, etc., can also be used to make richly hued leather tiles and panels. These are cheaper and easy to install.

Fabric Wall Panels

Fabric panels constitute of a panel of wood that is padded with batting and foam, covered over with a fabric. The traditional method of wall upholstery which used wood lathe, staples, etc., has found a very effective substitute, which is affordable and efficient too. Fabric Wall Panels have an additional advantage over and above the aesthetics that they provide, as they are capable of controlling reflection and reverberation of sound, thereby providing an acoustic solution. Fabric wall panels make a room look warm and cosy.

Laser Cut Sheet Metal Panels

Metal panels can be used for indoor as well as for outdoor purposes. They can be installed in an outdoor setting as a shading device, making them not only functionally viable, but also aesthetical as they can enhance the spatial quality of the space by casting artistic shadows as the natural light moves through the laser cut patterns. Other applications include handrail screens, window screens, partitions etc.

Eco Resin is an environment-friendly resin that is formulated to complement carbon, fibreglass and other laminating materials. Made out of natural plants and vegetable extracts, it is clearly a sustainable substitute for polyester resin. It is almost odourless and can be used safely in almost any working environment.

Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring

Unlike other hardwoods, bamboo is not inherently wear-resistant. Without treatment, many hardwoods are vulnerable to weathering and wear and tear. Strand woven bamboo flooring is much more durable than vertical or horizontal bamboo flooring because the cross-hatched strands act in correspondence to keep the individual components of the material intact.
