Wood, Stone, Textile? None Of That! Modern Materials Can Fool The Senses Very Convincingly

It would be ideal if it were always possible to use the material chosen by the owner or interior designer when furnishing the interior. But it’s not always possible. Either for financial reasons or for technical reasons. In such a case, however, it is not necessary to hang your head and make who knows how big concessions. Modern materials can imitate others with great convincingness.

As if it were a textile…
Natural-based textiles belong to materials with a long tradition, while modern technologies enable their relatively unconventional use. For example, you can have a classic linen fabric or a faithful imitation of it on the door.

„Their surface then imitates the structure of natural linen fabric, both visually and to the touch. In addition, such doors have rounded edges that connect the individual surfaces of the door without joints, so the door leaf really gives the impression of being covered with fabric,“ describes Tomáš Pilský from the Vekra company.

Thanks to the use of CPL laminate, the doors also have practical properties – the surface is colourfast, resistant to mechanical damage and easy to maintain. In this way, the door will retain its beautiful appearance even after many years of use, which would hardly be possible in the case of using real linen fabric.

A very grateful material that can be found in interiors is natural stone. However, the latter is not only more financially demanding, but also the possibilities of its use are somewhat limited due to its higher weight.

This is also why its imitations come into play here, thanks to which you can treat yourself to stone even in relatively unexpected places, for example on furniture. „Foliated doors offer a wide variety of processing and can thus faithfully imitate, for example, various types of stone, such as marble or slate. Just like their prototype, they are resistant to the penetration of moisture and dirt. Their basis is an MDF board, onto which a PVC foil is pressed. Under negative pressure, it completely surrounds the door from the visible side and from all four sides. The only joint is thus created on their back side and the outer edge is completely protected,“ explains Martin Dusík, sales director of Trachea, the largest Czech manufacturer of furniture doors. This makes door maintenance much easier.
