Vistafolia cooks up a storm in Birmingham. For many people, the kitchen is the heart of the home and, at Vistafolia, we’re often asked to add a little pizzazz to this important area. Because of our expertise, we were recently invited by Classic Interiors to help design their new kitchen showroom in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Launched in 1987, award winning Classic Interiors is a leading supplier of stylish kitchens in the West Midlands and, we were happy to help them make a splash with their new showroom.
The new Classic Interiors kitchen showroom is two floors of airy and light space on Harborne Road and, has been designed to showcase the company’s innovative and stylish kitchens. Vistafolia was asked to help with the design of the ground floor of the showroom which would be the focal point for visitors. The space was painted in grey tones ranging from pale oyster to nearly black and featured a central grey cooking island and a matching table and chairs. The floor was grey tile and, the only splash of colour was supplied by a cheery yellow sofa adjacent to the cooking island. The client wanted Vistafolia to add a little life and colour without distracting from the clean and cool colour theme. On inspection of the space, the Vistafolia® team felt that an abundance of vertical garden foliage idea would disrupt the clean lines of the space, therefore, it was decided that the crew would add one simple but effective green wall in the far corner of the room by the staircase.
Ready made frames were assembled and, the team set about attaching clusters of spiky green foliage, teamed with softer grasses and leaves. To break up the uniform green, colour boxes of delicate lavender and white were added to the arrangement, resulting in a pleasingly natural looking feature wall. The new wall added a welcome contrast to the dark stone colour theme of the room as well as a little much needed texture. Next to our feature wall was a solid, granite coloured wall with two cut outs which we filled with simple and pretty artificial flower arrangements.
Practical and beautiful. Classic Interiors were delighted with their new green wall which, they say, customers often comment on. The fact that all Vistafolia products are covered by our market leading five year guarantee is our promise that our products are created to stay the distance. As well as being fire-proof, UV protected and hard-wearing, Vistafolia artificial foliage helps to save our planet’s vital resources as it is recyclable and, doesn’t require the use of water or harmful pesticides. Classic Interiors were stunned at the quick and easy installation of the wall and, were delighted by the fact that Vistafolia artificial foliage requires almost no maintenance to keep it looking fantastic - making it ideal for a busy showroom such as this one.
