Zealand Collection by Enduratex
Zealand is woven with a rattan-like look and a metallic finish. Developed for hospitality, contract seating, lounge and casino and healthcare applications, Zealand has been produced with anti-bacterial and anti-microbial agents making it not just a pretty face in the room but the healthy, performance option. Zealand is further fortified with Enduratex’ proprietary topcoat, Forbid Srt, the stain resistant topcoat which combats blue jean dye transfer, lipstick, sharpie and pen marks and the previously hard to tackle, mustard and ketchup stains.
The logo and color names for the Zealand collection were inspired by the history and landmarks of New Zealand. From Gold Kiwi to Crater Lake, Sheep’s Wool and Moeraki Boulder, the rich coloring of Zealand evokes the landscape of New Zealand. Zealand is available in 10 SKUs and is on a 30-yard roll and 54-in. in width. It has an abrasion resistance of 100,000 double rubs and a -10-degree Fahrenheit cold crack rating.
“When we were testing the response to this collection in the marketplace, designers thought this was actual fabric, until they touched it,” said Jeff Post, VP/general manager for Enduratex. “Zealand is also a metallic, which is currently one of the hottest trends in hospitality. Adding the performance benefits of Forbid Srt to the fabric make it an ideal choice for hospitality, contract and healthcare applications.”
Crush from Versa Wallcovering creates a playful organic design capturing the movement of sunlight through lush foliage. Translucent layers of overlapping pigments emulate watercolor paintings and hand-dyed fabrics. A fresh modern take on a botanical print, Crush celebrates the resurgence of biophilic design that’s informing interiors.
“Crush is a fresh take on a botanical print. This playful organic celebrates the resurgence of the biophilic design that’s informing interiors, especially in hospitality and healthcare environments. Biophilic design acknowledges our instinctual and genetic connection to nature, and can be used in any setting to becalm an overstimulated urban lifestyle. To build this restorative environment, one that’s engineered to positively affect moods and feelings, our designers not only seek specific designs and textures that hint at nature, but also nature-inspired color palettes,” said Joey Kelly, creative director for Versa Wallcovering.
