Custom Wallcoverings

Custom Design Process

From a simple custom color to a design vision brought to life, Winfield Thybony's Custom Design Program is simple and straightforward. Custom wallcoverings provide an exciting and unique interior design environment free from any color, design, or image limitations.


There are several types of wallcovering adhesives, each formulated for specific performance characteristics.  Some adhesives are formulated for light-weight and delicate fabrics while others are designed to adhere heavy-weight vinyl and acoustical wallcoverings.

Grasses & Weaves Production

The art of grasscloth production is an environmentally friendly process that uses hand looms and sunlight to create timeless designs rooted in old world tradition.

Mold and Mildew

Mold / Mildew

Although the occurrence of mold and mildew cannot be eliminated, measures can be taken to reduce the risk. The permeability of vinyl wallcoverings can be increased through micro perforation which will allow more water vapor to pass through compared to a non perforated wallcovering.

Pattern Matches

How patterns come together to create a design is one of the most important elements to understanding wallcoverings. The vertical repeat is the distance between one point on the pattern to the identical point vertically. This pattern repeat is an integral part of the design.
