Wolf-Gordon’s new Origins Woods collection attempts to capture the allure of the New Mexico region by focusing on weathered wood structures. Consisting of four digital wallcoverings, Origins Woods is printed on Terralon, and will join the company’s Curated Collection.
Terralon is an earth-friendly wall covering material made from 31 percent post-consumer recycled material that is also recyclable. It is free from chlorine, heavy metals and formaldehyde, and contains no pvc, palsticizers or phthalates. The material passed CA-1350 for indoor air quality with extremely low VOCs and can contribute to LEED points.
The patterns in Origins Woods are photographically realistic, inspired by the barns, fences, and homes that are built of the material for siding, paneling and flooring. The wood is presented in different configurations as lengthwise cuts and cross sections. As these digital prints attest, wood is a canvas for diverse patinas and textures when exposed to the elements; its textural complexity makes it a sophisticated complement to a variety of interiors.
The four patterns in the collection add a warm, authentic touch to any space, whether positioned behind a headboard or a reception desk, or in a customer waiting area or retail environment. Each pattern is available in three standard color options and can be printed in a custom hue upon request.
Included in the collection are the following patterns: Catalpa, hand-sawn wood planks arranged in a brick pattern for a cozy, geometric effect; Pawpaw, named for a fruit-bearing tree long popular among Native Americans, this checkered pattern is made of end grain blocks; Tamarack, vertical panels of reclaimed wood with characteristic grooves, flecks, and gouges provide an authentic look; Tupelo, a farmhouse appeal is captured in this pattern’s horizontal planks of weathered wood. Tupelo is offered with natural coloring, a bleached wood effect, or stained with a deep espresso tone.
