Panelled walls – the new ‘retro-vogue’ for 2019 – add charm, texture and personality to a room: and make the perfect partner for carpets, according to the Cormar Carpet Company.
No longer in days-of-old dark mahogany and reserved for stately homes or libraries, the new, modern styles are experimental in colour and use different designs to bring texture and warmth to a room.
Said David Cormack, marketing director at Cormar: “The key to this trend is to make sure the wall takes centre stage. The end result is a feature that is stunning and dramatic – whether it’s in a period property or a contemporary home.
“It also means that when it comes to the floor, you need to keep it simple. An understated shade looks fantastic against a statement wall. Grey carpets make an ideal base because they are easy on the eye and don’t ‘steal the scene’ making them a practical investment.”
