Decorative mouldings have been adorning walls and ceilings in all shapes and styles for centuries. From skirting boards to cornices, wainscoting or wall panels, in stately mansions, imposing palaces or listed buildings – all have been a source of inspiration for the Objet collection by Arte. Adding colour, texture and relief to any interior concept, the wallcoverings are finished in a soft suede look for a luxurious tactile feel. In addition, as these wallcoverings are three dimensional, they have a positive impact on the acoustics in a room.

“Texture and colour have always been at the core of what we do at Arte, with many of our designs pushing the boundaries of what is considered wallpaper,” said Philippe Desart, Managing Director, Arte. “We strive to offer our clients a multitude of options for adding personality and customise their spaces, making each unique. One prevailing feature in everything we do has always been our focus on detail; everything is carefully considered, whether that’s a particular texture, colour or pattern, and these elements are all intricately designed and developed with the best quality in mind. This latest collection ‘Objet’, features suede effect designs. Although pattern free and within a more concise palette of refined colours, the collection is rich in textural detail with a super soft and tactile touch, whilst delivering all the timeless elegance of panelling with a three dimensional embossed effect.”

While the Grandeur and Manoir wall panel designs are inspired by the decorative mouldings in mansions and palaces, Cassetta and Pantheon take their inspiration from the classic coffered ceilings and architectural details used by the Romans to lighten the vaulted structures of domes and ceilings. In addition to colour and texture, all the designs in the collection add relief and depth to the wall, and are available in five colourways.
