Surface View offers a unique opportunity to bring extraordinary images into your interior space. Whether you’re decorating your own house or arranging the refurbishment of an entire office block, Surface View is at hand to help.

Since the launch of Surface View in 2007 with its original image collections from the V&A, Wayne Hemingway and the National Maritime Museum, they have continued to expand their image libraries. New exclusive collections as diverse as The National Gallery and Marvel Comics, or Getty Images and The Natural History Museum allow you to choose from a stunning range of imagery, whatever your personal tastes may be.

The Surface View website concentrates largely on their standard products, where you can find dramatic wallpapers, beautiful roller blinds, and exclusive canvas prints. From glazing films to photographic prints, or a wall covering film that applies direct to exposed brickwork creating a painted on effect. The newest products in their range include a film called “Just Stick it UP” that allows you to do just that, with it’s own repositionable self-adhesive layer. What was once a specialist job can now be undertaken by anyone. Other exciting developments include a new partnership with Formica®, allowing the collections to be created as high pressure laminate sheets, for kitchens, toilet cubicles or bespoke furniture.

Whether you require the bespoke service of their main site, or want to find a great off-the-shelf product from their shop site; Surface View two, make sure you give their blog site a visit. It’s full of ideas on how to implement the products available, including a great piece on a brand new ceramic tile offering.
