When the James L. West Center completely renovated its three floors of housing for residents with Alzheimer’s, finding the right wall treatment was a particular challenge. The Fort Worth, Texas facility was quick to reject anything that looked institutional in favor of creating a high-end, homelike setting. However, wheelchairs, walkers and pushcarts continually damaged walls in tight spaces such as bathrooms.
St. Louis’ first AAA Five Diamond Hotel, the Four Seasons boasts epic views of the Mississippi River, the iconic Gateway Arch and downtown Saint Louis. The tower with 200 guest rooms and suites literally sparkles with 500,000 LED lights radiating from its facade. But hotel staff worried that the guestroom corridors didn’t live up to the hotel’s dazzling decor. VersaGuard, a heavy-duty flexible wall protection, transformed the corridors, offering beautiful aesthetics while guarding the walls against the impact of luggage carts and other rolling traffic.
Several Versa patterns are on display at the New Direction Fertility Clinic in Gilbert, Arizona. Designer Jana Gordon with Studio JJ in Mesa, Arizona says that everyone loves the look of these patterns, which she selected based on her specific color needs, as well as her desire to use patterns with lots of texture, providing an interesting backdrop without too bold of a design.
Facility managers agree that one of the ongoing problems in hospital corridors are scuff marks on the walls from gurneys, carts and rolling traffic. The dilemma led one of the nation’s largest nonprofit healthcare systems to put out a call to action. The Dallas organization with more than 20,000 employees and 3,800 beds asked vendors to suggest a solution that was highly durable, affordable, resistant to damage, attractive, and able to maintain its appearance over a long lifecycle. Answering the call was international wallcovering manufacturer Versa Wallcovering and its new flexible wall protection called VersaGuard.
Versa's Prism wallcovering was selected for use in the historic Edward's House near downtown Fort Collins, CO. It was chosen as it serves as the perfect juxtaposition of new, bold and classic design, fitting with the historic character of the Victorian Edwards House. Each room in the Edwards House is a unique experience, and Prism helps defines its timeless personality.
The luxurious five-star Hotel Sofitel Warsaw Victoria made a statement in its corridors with Versa’s City Blocks. The landmark hotel in the heart of Poland’s capital brought the grand geometry of the city’s skyline to wall with these 5” x10” combed rectangular blocks that project the handcrafted yet industrial look of scored metal or cement.
