Wallcovering Wednesday: Fabric-Backed Vinyl Wallpaper

Fabric backed vinyl wallpaper is a great solution to many common wallcovering problems. This wallpaper has durable fabric backing and a vinyl surface, which makes it almost invincible. They’re a superhero against dings, scratching, stains and standard wear and tear without being damaged. The benefits of fabric-backed vinyl are virtually endless. They come in many different textures that are just not achievable with paint, they can be easily cleaned with water, soap and even most household cleaning agents without ruining the wallpaper. If your home has wall damage, this wallcovering is great at covering up imperfections.

ENCHANTMENT COLLECTION…BY THIBAUT

Thibaut is one of our favorite wallpaper lines and we’re always excited when we receive a new Thibaut book. Their new collection, Enchantment, explodes with color and offers classic patterns designed with that unique Thibaut look.

Thibaut has this to say about the Enchantment Collection:

Welcome a new interpretation of chinoiserie in the Enchantment Collection. With an eastern influence, this fresh collection of coordinating wallpaper, embroidery, print and woven fabrics pays homage to traditional European artistic styles. Modern design elements mimic fashionable chinoiserie compositions like scenics, fretwork and delicate florals.
