The rise of waterproof wallpaper both in home design and outdoors

Following the recent market debut of d.ecodura™, the world’s first wallpaper made from organic bio-vinyl for indoor surfaces, Wall&decò continues to demonstrate its pioneering spirit with the new 2024-1 collections.

Quality, technique, and aesthetics form the foundation of Wall&decò‘s daily work. This Italian company, headquartered in Ravenna, specializes in wallpaper production. Their latest achievements include two new collections that showcase how ‘paper’ and ‘water’ can harmoniously coexist, thanks to technological advancements. These include the WET System, a waterproof wallpaper designed for showers and wet areas, and the OUT System, a wallpaper for facades and exterior walls.

Wall&decò was established in 2005 by Christian Benini, the founder and creative director of the brand, who initially worked as an advertising photographer. While creating an image featuring large leaves for a photo shoot backdrop, he instantly saw its significant decorative potential and the various ways it could be adapted for interior design.
