According to a Bain & Co. report, sales of luxury goods are expected to grow between 6% and 8% this year, putting the market between $231 billion to $327 billion! This trend can also be seen in the luxury interior decor market. A few years ago, luxury in interior design meant golden bathtubs and wall-to-wall marble. Not anymore. Now, the perception of luxury in decor is less about “things” and more about unique “experiences” such as spa bathrooms and movie theaters. People want uniqueness; a look that no one else has in their home. This trend is opening up a huge market for digital decor products. With HP PVC-free Wallcovering, designers can print one-of-a-kind murals and wall effects that are limited only by their imaginations.

DreamWraps, a premier vinyl wrap and graphic design company in Newport News, Virginia, is using Drytac products to deliver beautiful wall coverings to both residential and business customers throughout North America.
