Arte’s Samal Wall Covering Feels Like Living Inside a Seashell
Ever wanted to feel like you lived inside a seashell? Try Samal, a wall covering collection by Arte comprised entirely of real capiz shells that are colored, cut, and placed by hand in geometric patterns on a nonwoven backing. There are four patterns, including Cubic, a 3D box repeat in three rich, earthy colorways; Helix, a three-pronged design in a trio of colorways; and Camber, a fish-scale motif in five colorways. Each pattern is sold in sets of five interlocking tiles (11.18 to 16.57 inches wide and 9.68 to 18.11 high) which can be applied in nearly infinite combinations. Key takeaway? The soft mother-of-pearl gleam varies according to the light, creating a moody, glamorous, and ever-changing effect on walls.
