I don’t know about you, but when we first saw these wall panels we were totally fooled by them. They look so soft and comfortable, like they are made from padded fabric, but they are in fact composed of a polyurathane back with a front face made of resin mixed with a natural stone and marble powder, making them very hard indeed.

Earlier this year, Hannah Coleman, founder of Dreamwall, a UK-based supplier specializing in high-quality imitation wallcoverings for the domestic and commercial markets, launched the new panel range called Capitone, which strongly resembles the padded effect of a deep buttoned Chesterfield sofa.

The panels, which are part of the Fashion Walls collection, are 100mm thick and available in either black or white. Installation is easy as the panels can be attached to the wall surface using strong bonding glue, or they can be drilled into the wall if necessary.

They are extremely light, water repellent, flame retardant, and non permeable making them ideal for use indoors and outdoors. They also have superb thermal, acoustic and anti-humidity qualities.

So were you taken in as well? Did you also think that these wall panels were soft and cushioned? And given their many advantageous properties, where would you use them?
