Join the splinter group and rediscover real timber
There are times when modern geometric patterns and classic florals don’t quite fit the bill. Maybe your space opens up onto a heavenly glade enveloped by tall trees. Maybe your space is a rustic gem hand-made using natural materials. Yep, there are times when the look and feel of real timber forms an essential part of your overall design. But how do you imbue these qualities in an environmentally responsible way?
Gilford’s Wood-On-Walls collection is a triumph of manufacturing that uses carefully selected timber to produce highly flexible veneers that instantly transform a barren space into a rich and inviting landscape. What’s more, Gilford has long held environmental stewardship as a corporate priority. The company does not, and will not, market any wood product that comes from any of the world’s protected rain forest areas. Gilford’s suppliers must be active supporters and participants in reforestation and the company is very serious about this commitment.

The Wood-On-Walls Collection offers real timber veneers harvested under FSC certified conditions, mounted on clay-filled or fabric backing to create a lasting and authentic timber showpiece in your home. The timbers are delivered in untreated rolls, so you can apply on-site staining or colour applications. The veneer is flexible, too, so it can be applied to flat or curved surfaces without visible seams.
The Wood-On-Walls Collection offers decorators a stunning amount of choice. The following list shows the depth and quality of the wood veneer range – and even more varieties can be sourced:
All Wood-On-Walls veneers are not only harvested in an environmentally responsible way, they’re safe too. They carry a class “A” flame spread rating (ASTM E84), with a flame spread less than 25 and smoke density less than 450. They look fantastic in any space that is longing to get back to nature.
