Lori Weitzner’s Nature Collection
Lori Weitzner continues to dazzle with their groundbreaking approach to sustainable textural wallcoverings. The Nature Collection features seven styles that evoke earth, water and light patterns.
My favorite is Eden, which is formed by hand from 100-percent recycled pulp composed of salago and mulberry tree fibers. Available in 48- x 96-inch sheets, it is perforated with an image that is both graphic and organic and can be used as a hanging room divider, window shade or screen.
Quarry is a fascinating product; a flexible layer of stone backed with paper provides an easy installation of the 24- x 48-inch sheets. Is it a great idea to continue to quarry natural stone, a non-renewable resource? Maybe not, but this product uses a minimal amount to great effect.
Like all Weitzner products, this new collection is based on natural fibers and rapidly renewable materials derived from plants such as linen, silk and abaca that are harvested on a 10-year or shorter cycle and recycled content.
Perfect? No, but a good environmental choice that's aesthetically stunning.
