The Decora Company took part in the annual ArtFusion Event on October 1 through October 5. This year’s event in Colorado brought in more than 200 decorative finishers and artists looking to share their expertise and industry knowledge to others within the industry and also to event participants willing to learn more. Our course on, “New Modern Plasters and Textured Metallics" taught individuals with skills ranging from novice to expert on the application of decorative textures, venetian plasters and metallics.
Venetian plaster has been gaining traction outside the United States for some time and originally began in Italy. While Venetian plaster is home to Italy, as of recent the integration of this aesthetically pleasing “look” has been making its way into states like California, Florida, Texas and others.
Venetian Plaster was originally used centuries ago where it was developed outside of Venice Italy. Venetian Plaster has withstood the test of time due to its long lifecycle and its beautify luster and variation in tonality of the finish. In its traditional form the composition of the venetian plaster is simply lime, marble dust and water. It is applied as a wet plaster and when dries reverts to its original limestone properties.
Kanye West's new Yeezy design studio opened in June with a minnimalist contemporary look featuring concrete effect walls, floor and furniture. This minimalist look is proving very popular in 2018 as we can hardly keep our Concrete Art product on the shelves.
Join us as Luigi introduces the beauty and simplicity of the new finishes from San Marco now available in the US. Effects include faux concrete, textured plasters, metallic plasters, new metallic paints and metallic textures.
The popularity of our most popular products Concrete Art, Lime Plaster Marmorino and Venetian Plaster seems to be limited to a few cities across the US. The design trend of modern or industrial just is not everywhere, yet.
