Intrigue by Arte

“Wallcoverings that will continue to inspire”

New in to the Bibi studio is this fabulous range of 3D padded wallcoverings by Arte. Not only are they incredibly tactile they also have brilliant acoustic effects, are easy to hang and look stunning!


Paper or non- woven wallcoverings naturally spring to mind when you think of wallcoverings.
However with the unique Intrigue collection Arte has once more taken the concept to a completely different level. And even if you have perhaps seen a wall covered with a textile, well, this is just a  little more refined.


The Intrigue collection is the result of a new process that we call thermoforming. As the word might  suggest, heat is used to press a design into the fabric. By heating the fabric it acquires a luxurious satin sheen that reflects the light. It is fascinating to see and irresistible to touch. You also obtain a beguiling interplay of smooth and relief, light and dark, sheen and matte areas.


This new collection features three different designs. The first print, Rosace, is a more graphic design with regular triangles, three-dimensional of course. This produces ‘rise’ and ‘fall’ that showcases the subtle sheen effect. The second design, Caisson, was inspired by a wonderful, old, sculpted panel door, such as those you frequently encounter in the smallest streets of Paris. Design number three, Feuillage, is a tile pattern of leaf designs.

The colour palette is equally pronounced and irrefutably demands your undivided attention. The colours in this collection boast captivating names such as Avorio, Prussia, Fondant, Perla and Felce, which make your imagination run wild. So do you dare to decorate a wall in black, bright blue of poisonous green? As a personal statement? Or do you prefer to play it safe with a more restrained tone?


Intrigue offers another advantage. As a result of the combination of materials used, this wallcovering will influence in a positive way the acoustics in areas where the wallcovering has been installed. It means that voices are immediately muffled in large rooms.
Because the Intrigue collection is produced from supple material, it is also a valuable product for adding a touch of style to less attractive walls. Intrigue is actually highly flexible and very intriguing.


The Intrigue collection is available cut to size and in various widths depending on the chosen design. Rosace is 1,26 m wide; Caisson and Feuillage are both 1,23 m wide.

Swarovski Elements Wall Coverings

When looking for a luxury wall finish for your home, Swarovski crystals are the epitome of elegance and extravagance combined. Rather than simply featuring Swarovski Elements, this wallpaper is designed by Swarovski themselves to showcase their finest crystals and pearls. With nine exclusive designs and several complimentary plain papers this collection can be used to decorate a whole room or simply as a feature wall. The range of designs has something to suit both the contemporary and classical palette and does not disappoint with high quality craftsmanship and superb finishes.

Using a mixture of paper, flocked designs, beads, crystals and pearls the collection has fabulous variety. Here is a selection of our favourites:



Available in five colour ways this paper features a large flocked feather design complete with a detail of varying sized crystals in complimentary colours. Suitable for a larger space this paper really makes an impact due to its large scale repeat.

Feather Palace - French Grey 

Feather Palace

The second of the two feather designs in the collection, ‘Feather Palace’ has a large quantity of luxurious and rich flocking repeated across its width. This design is broken up with individual crystal feathers in contrasting shades. A great, smaller pattern alternative to ‘Plume’ this paper is available in four colours.

Versailles - Gold 


With a metallic, antique mirror appearance ‘Versailles’ has a highly reflective finish. Available in both silver and and antique gold the paper features clusters of crystals at the corners of its panelled pattern. This paper would suit a dramatic entrance hall or dining room due to its extravagant appearance when hung.

Jewelled Stripe

A wide mixed flock and paper stripe, this design is a timeless classic. Using a mixture of metallic wallpaper and velvet touch flock the design is highlighted with a row of Swarovski crystals. Available in five shades this paper works for both contemporary and classical interiors.

 Kohinoor Damask - Taupe 

Kohinoor Damask

This design is slightly different as it uses small glass beads to create a damask pattern rather than crystals. Overlaid in a complementary colour the beads add a glistening finish to the background paper. With five colours to chose from it would make a fantastic addition to any traditional interior.
