With the popularity of mixed wood and metal finishes, UNILIN, division panels, is making sure that designers can source authentic surfaces without the expense and complexities of genuine materials…
Aspirational interiors continue to play a key part in furniture and interior design. Combinations of luxury brushed and gloss metals, cool alabasters and rich wood pairings are prevalent in many top global design projects within the high-end commercial and hospitality sector.
While material combinations are not a new trend, it feeds an ongoing focus on reinventing retro elements into modern and contemporary schemes. The inclusion of metals to a wood scheme provides an edgy modernity, while introducing wood to metal schemes provides warmth and comforting luxury.
Lorenzo Walnut, one of the 168 decors available in the UNILIN Evola surface collection, brings the delicate fine grain and silky-smooth attributes of solid walnut into a versatile surface finish.
What’s more, thanks to the adaptability and durability of UNILIN Evola HPL and melamine, Lorenzo Walnut can be used on everything from wall panels and column features to reception desk fascia, café tables, work desks, bar and work surfaces.
It’s all-round performance and ease of maintenance makes it a more cost-effective option than solid walnut.
“There are tactile and aesthetic assets from walnut that provide an exciting material partner for metal and stone finishes,” said Sofie Coulier at UNILIN division panels. “Its distinctive structure and weathered patina give that detailing that sets it high on the luxury scale.
“This almost architectural wood gives the soft, sleek and high-end finish that is popular with key designers throughout the interiors sector and works perfectly with our brushed metal and stone decors in the Evola range.”
Scratch and stain-resistant, safe from fading and easy to wipe down. All Evola melamine-faced chipboard panels are made from 100 per cent circular wood, including a minimum 85 per cent recycled content. Not only great performing, Lorenzo Walnut delivers a more sustainable solution to extracting raw material from natural resources.
