In times of continual change, we take comfort in things that remain constant in our lives over time.
British heritage wallcovering, Lincrusta does just that, but that doesn’t mean it remains fixed in time. Here, we reflect on the qualities that make Lincrusta still so relevant today – especially for hospitality interiors.
It has sustainable qualities by its very nature. It is made from linseed oil, and is manufactured in the UK, using almost the same recipe, and upholding the time-honoured craftsmanship as when it was invented in 1877. Once installed, Lincrusta becomes part of the fabric of the building. No need to replace, when you get tired of a scheme, you can simply repaint it or change its aesthetic through decorative finishes.
Once painted, Lincrusta is extremely hard-wearing and meets contract flame retardancy standards. Its versatility means that it can adorn a myriad of surfaces from walls to ceilings, to furniture, headboards, bars, and doors. Its resistance to humidity makes it highly suitable for bathrooms, wet rooms and spas.
Adding layers of texture to an interior, its unrivalled emboss gives it wonderful light reflecting qualities. The bespoke nature of the finish means that every project is unique. Take a new look at Lincrusta today. Familiar yet unexpected!
