New Wall Flat Designs from Inhabit

54 Flares 54 Flares ×

Just when my husband and I have decided to move away from the wall flats we used for the headboard in our previous master bedroom, I discover that Inhabit has released new wall flat designs that make my heart go pitter patter. I MUST find another place to use these:

Luna

This is easily my favorite of the new designs. I love the graphic, geometric shapes, and I imagine they’d be gorgeous if painted in a bold color.

Drift

If you’ve ever tried to imagine how the wall flats would look painted, just check out this gorgeous gray! There’s a reason gray is my favorite neutral. This looks like a high-end boutique hotel — not a bad look for a bedroom.

Hive

This pattern is…interesting…but not one of my favorites. It reads a little like cardboard when painted in the color shown above. This is one case where I think the flats would work best in white to add some texture. Color is just too much on such a busy pattern.

In case you haven’t seen or heard of Inhabit’s wall flats before, they are lightweight tiles that can be used to create large-scale dimensional walls of any size and shape. You can use them to create an uninterrupted sculptural wall, or you can do what my husband and I did, and use it on a smaller scale as a headboard or a piece of art. While they used to be made of bamboo pulp, it appears the wall panels are now made of bagasse, an incredibly renewable resource that is a byproduct of the process used to extract juice from sugarcane or sorghum stalks. This means the tiles are biodegradable, compostable and recyclable with your other paper products.

Why It’s Green:

  • Made from material that would otherwise become waste
  • Biodegradable, compostable and recyclable

Price: $80/box of 10 tiles, or $4.50/tile for second quality flats in the outlet(aff)
NOTE: I used the latter, and the quality was perfect, in my opinion

    Hi, Jennae!

    I didn’t know this product existed and the fact that it’s green makes it even better!
    Luna is my favorite pattern also and white would be my first choice too.

    Always great information, thanks!
