Luxurious Feature Wall
Furniture Store, Yorkshire
The well-known Barkers Furniture Store in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, was looking for a unique way to make the new extension of their building stand out. In this project, the design was in place before the architects had the product to manage it, and VistaGreen was the only product on the market that could fulfill their vision.
Using VistaGreen’s realistic foliage panels, a 100m² artificial green wall was created, with a luxurious mixed tapestry of colour to bring the retail space to life. Fitted behind the staircase from the lower to upper level, the feature wall is an eye-catching and an unmissable feature from either level, that created a journey around the store for customers. The relaxing green space juxtaposed perfectly with the industrial look from other parts of the store, creating a modern aesthetic, and the perfect backdrop to showcase their beautiful products.
Due to the location of the green wall and the ongoing construction of the new wing, this impressive green wall had to be fitted within a tight timeframe, which would have been impossible with a living wall system. Our quick-fitting solution allowed the wall to go up quickly, and meant that once it was in place the stairs could immediately follow, without needing time for the plants to ‘settle’ and establish. Plus, there’s no need for a watering system or further maintenance – it could simply be left alone for a lush idyllic display all year round.
With our lightweight, customisable green wall panels, VistaGreen added a touch of nature to soften the existing hard architectural lines of the building, and brought a feeling of delight and tranquility to this retail environment.
