Create a stunning feature wall in your lounge or media room that will perfectly combine functionality and form.
“We installed this stunning Porta timber panelling to complete a sleek, streamlined entertainment centre in our apartment located on Brisbane’s city fringe,” explains Kim Fernandez, Interior & Surface Pattern Designer, Shabby Shac. “With a background in Interior Design, new innovative products, clever work-arounds and out of the box thinking is everyday in our home. I am blessed to have a husband who is not only tech savvy but very handy on the tools and together we have renovated many properties in and around beautiful Brisbane.”
Kim selected beautiful Porta Contours in Ridges for her feature wall. “We chose the Ridges profile in Tasmanian Oak as we simply loved the irregularity of the panelling and the colour and durability of the hardwood,” says Kim. “We chose to leave the timber raw and unstained as we had expressly chosen the Tasmanian Oak for the durability, colour and organic finish.”*
Enhanced by a shadow gap, Ridges consists of two different sized extrusions creating variation, dimension and interest to interior spaces.
“With functionality always high on our list when we renovate, selections need to be hardworking and flexible,” explains Kim. “With a lot of research and a little forward planning, we were able to create a floating feature wall with a combination of timber batons and Porta's beautiful range of panelling. Not only were we able to hide all those unsightly cords, we were able to remove some of the focus from the TV itself and highlight the beautiful clean lines of the cabinetry.”
As a feature in a kitchen, bedroom, hallway, lounge, or dining room, Ridges adds a depth and richness to the material palette. It can also be used to clad doors and cabinetry as well as creating concealed doorways for a seamless finish.
With its consistent tongue and groove joint, Ridges can be used in conjunction with any other Contours profile to create a unique design. It is also suitable for curved applications.
