Wood wallcoverings - real wood real walls at a fraction of the price

Looking for a natural timber wallcovering that’ll make you go WOW?

We live in fast-paced, pre-packaged, pre-fabricated days. No time to stop and smell the roses, no time to gaze at your navel, no time to sit alone and soak up the ambience of a room. If you want the smell of cut grass on a lazy afternoon, it can be manufactured. If you want a shirt you never have to iron, there’s a factory that can do it. So it’s no wonder that many interior designers are turning back to nature for inspiration, but it’s a double-edged sword. How do embrace the warmth and texture of natural wood without the painstaking effort and environmental cost? It’s easy, just go for the innovative product called Wood On Wall (WOW).
