by The Finished Space

In case you weren’t able to make it to the 2016 International Builders’ Show, or you just want to reminisce over the latest interior finishing styles and trends, we’ve got just what you’re looking for.

In addition to the expertly designed room vignettes and Rat Pack-inspired coffee bar we walked you through in a post earlier this week, we also featured Metrie Complete pre-painted mouldings in a gorgeous pergola in the center of the booth, gave you a sneak peek to the upcoming launch of our wainscot solutions, and inspired show attendees to use interior finishing products throughout the home.  All of this was created to arouse the designer inside each one of us!

Metrie Complete Pre-Painted Moulding

Metrie Complete is a patented, high-quality pre-painted moulding solution that saves professionals time and money, while offering a high-end looking result that homeowner’s value. It makes the installation of trim easier for everyone from the pro to the novice DIYer.

The pre-painted mouldings were used to create the welcoming lounge area located in the central part of our booth, complete (no pun intended) with grand columns, a faux fireplace and custom-made mantel surround.

Metrie’s Then & Now Finishing Collection – Wainscot Solutions

Featured throughout the booth was a teaser of Metrie’s Then & Now Finishing Collections – Wainscot Solutions that will officially launch later this spring.

New moulding elements will be introduced that will help aide in the creation of amazing wall paneling, while alleviating the associated hassle of selecting all of the pieces.

Create the Look

We believe every room tells a story, if you set the stage. The product solutions that we displayed during the show helped attendees grasp ideas and inspiration, as well as product knowledge.  This knowledge will help them and ultimately their clients, transform a space into a room where stories are shared and memories are created.

This is why fashion and interior finishings collided in our “Create the Look” section.  Some of Metrie’s regional moulding profiles were paired with the latest fashion styles and trends to spark creativity and have attendees looking at interior finishings in new ways and unique applications.

Putting a spin on things to create an ultra-chic space, “Modern Geometry” was formed by incorporating vibrant art deco patterns juxtaposed with neutral finishings throughout. This combination creates a space that is modern with a nod to the past.
