Polly Resin Panels:
You may have seen these in retail stores, restaurants or even office environments, but have you ever thought of using them to enhance the interior design of your home? Why not? These panels come in numerous colors, textures and patterns and will give a visual kick to any space. The sky is the limit, as far as the uses for these panels, below you will learn about one application that we recently accomplished for a Scottsdale interior design client.
A mid century modern home, originally built by Ralph Haver, was undergoing major renovations and our company was helping them with the construction and interior design of their addition. The homeowners, modern design enthusiasts, wanted to use unique materials in the interior decorating of the home to help accomplish a modern aesthetic. Their architect designed a space where the integration of two separate resin panels could be used. The room was to be located at an intersection of two large corridors, an ideal location to create a focal point. The opening (entrance) to the bedroom was created by leaving two perpendicular walls open up to 6’-8” from the finished floor. The panels, were used as the doors for this space and where hung on a “barn door” track, which allowed the panels to slide back and forth along the outside of both walls. When closed the doors complete the corner and when open, they allow for a larger than typical opening into the room. The type of resin panel that we helped locate for the client had an organic, sinuous pattern with spa like blue tint. The panels were semi-translucent, which allowed light to travel through them, meanwhile also providing privacy.
The manufacturer of the panels that we incorporated into the interior design for this particular client was from a company called 3-form out of Utah. However, there are several other companies that carry and sell this type of product. Listed below are links to the companies that we have come across in our research that you might want to look into if you are interested in learning more about these products. You will find that every company offers uniquely different selections and that some will even allow you to customize your own design. If you are conscious about “green” interior design, you will also be happy to find out that many of these products are often made of recycled and/or sustainable materials.
