A new aesthetic value for the wall
“Skirting” or “dado rails” are usually associated with straight, long, rather unobtrusive mouldings used to cleverly hide cables or the unsightly edges of wall-to-wall carpet, rather than with something of aesthetic value. Products by Raffi prove that using the right colours and designs will change this.
Raffi first presents its new “walldeco” range at the Heimtextil trade fair 2016, thereby extending itsproduct portfolio with decorative mouldings and ornaments for both walls and ceilings, a development that is particularly exciting in the DIY world. Designer Maarten Vrolijk sees walls as more than just sober boundaries of space. He has already made highly contemporary contributions to their surface design with the Raffi paint and Raffi wallpaper ranges, and is now adding a further element. The new line’s spectrum ranges from modern, linear mouldings to striking, curved 3D-look elements and whimsical 3D stucco ornaments basedon traditional ceiling roses. You do not need to be an artist to produce an artistic piece of wall art with these. The only accomplishment called for is a desire for change. All Raffi mouldings fix to the wall quickly and easily. Cut to size, glue in place, and paint to immediately change the character of a room. And, of course, the Raffi brand stays true to its design mission: to deliver products that are in harmony with nature, in order to create a relaxed living environment with a contemporary look. This is also another reason why Raffi walldeco products are a particularly beautiful way to add perfect style to your walls.
Calm interiors don’t necessarily have to be boring. Decorative mouldings, cornicing and coving are a quick way to add a certain something to any room, for instance to give a period feel to a new build, to create an individual picture display corner highlighted with a DIY frame, or to design an elegant, beautifully finished hallway to bid your guests welcome. And if you want to stage your favourite pattern from the “Villa Raphael” wallpaper collection in a particularly striking way, just frame it with mouldings in a matching colour. The Raffi paint range of colours consists of subtle earthy shades; they all match each other perfectly. An encounter between mouldings and walls painted in matching shades creates an impressive, elegant overall picture.The range of products currently sold under the Raffi brand includes paints, wallpapers, rugs, tiles, soft furnishings and mouldings. With this product portfolio, the brand manages to create contemporary living environments without a style dictate.
