There’s something extraordinary about a room with upholstered walls — and it’s not just the visual stimulation. When you walk in, you can immediately notice the difference in sound, too, or rather lack of it. Footsteps don’t resonate, speech is quieted and that hollow echo that sometimes fills a room is absent, resulting in an intimate, relaxed experience. Wall upholstery also provides several other functional benefits. It provides great insulation helping improve a room's acoustical properties and aesthetically covers most structural imperfections in a wall’s surface.
