DIGITAL PRINTING OF WALL COVERING GIVES DESIGNERS FLEXIBILITY PB: I have been involved in the contract furniture industry since 1973 with the founding of Brayton International Collection. The company grew rapidly for fourteen years and caught the attention of Steelcase for its unique designs and presence in the marketplace. My The world of wall covering is being dramatically changed by today's digital printing technologies. Interior designers and architects have the nearly limitless choices offered by using a photo or digital art file to give a space the exact look and feel they want. By turning that file into custom printed wallpaper, they have something easy to install and durable in use. From corporate lobbies to retail stores to restaurants and sporting venues, designers are discovering that their palette has expanded dramatically. For instance, the Texas Rangers wanted their lobby, as President and CEO Nolan Ryan said, "to look like a baseball team lives here!" A photo taken during a World Series game was printed on wallpaper 15 by 28 feet in size (installed as four foot wide strips), and the effect is that you feel like you are emerging from a tunnel into t he ball park when you enter the Rangers lobby.

Does photography really bring the same expressiveness as traditional art? An interview with Guy Boniface, President and CEO, 1ReSource Chicago An interview with Klaus Sonnenleiter, President/CEO, PrintedArt. GB: I'm the owner and CEO of 1 ReSource Inc started in September, 2008. Prior to that, I had a business called Guy Boniface & Associates, a sales and marketing company bringing in parts from Asia for clients in the U.S. and Canada. Altogether, my face has been around this market for 30 years, and I heard my customers telling me that there was a strong need for a strong company with distribution in North America for quality office KS: Photography very often uses the same artistic semantics as other forms of art. You can find some great examples of very naturalistic photos in our collection, as well as examples that have a more photojournalistic feel. A large part of our collection can best be described as "abstract photography."
