Italian luxury wall and floor surfaces designer Listone Giordano and Inkiostro Bianco has launched its Lineadeko collection by Aldo Cibic – three-dimensional effect decorative wooden surfaces inspired by geometry as well as nature and available in two large panel formats. Laser engraved and digitally printed, the ‘velvety, soft to the touch’  surfaces are, apparently, suited to bathrooms and kitchens, to offices, hotels and even ‘luxury yachting’. If you run out of wall to adorn, you can look to Listone’s Undici parquet floor range – also with enhanced, engraved decoration.
