Marquetry Inlaid Wood VeneerIf you are looking for decadence and luxury look no further. The Marquetry Inlaid Wood Veneer designed by Maya Romanoff (what a suitable name, isn't it?) are made of unusual materials to make exotic wall coverings. The Marquetry Veneer uses micro-thin pieces of wood on a paper backing. The pattern is laser cut and then painstakingly inlaid by hand. Available in 19-meters rolls it is so flexible you can even wrap it around a column. In an age of minimalism this is a great return to decorative styles. Use it get back to the age of tsars and kings.

Eldorado StoneAfter wood, let's see another natural material. Eldorado Stone Company is making wonderful things with stone for the last 30 years. They have an interior line that is simply amazing. Cast from custom molds created from selected natural stones, these stone veneers can be used in any room where you want to use the warmth of real stone. Installing manufactured stone is not only economical at half the price of natural stone, it is also lightweight and requires no foundations. Eldorado Stone can be applied to any structurally sound surface.

Alchemy 3formOK, let's continue with natural materials but a little more expensive. These custom gold aluminium laminate walls by 3form are the ultimate luxury. Rich but tasteful, the Alchemy walls seem to glow from with a deep, rich colour. You can let the walls speak for themselves by keeping the surrounding decor simple, or you can enhance the glitter and glam with equally ritzy furnishings. Either way, you’ll cast a spell over your guests with their magic, rippled effect. And it's kinda cool to have gold on the wall.

Then just paint as you please and you're good to go. These wall panels are also available with fire- or water-resistant cores.
