Convert Our Fabric into a Wall Covering

Transform virtually any fabric into a modern wall treatment through Robert Allen's paperbacked program. With a wonderful array of textures, a multitude of vibrant colors and a plethora of prints, the options are endless and installation is as quick and easy as any standard wall covering. Try a bold, geometric print to create an accent wall or a sophisticated woven to add subtle depth and dimension to any space.


"I am so excited to be using Robert Allen/Beacon Hill new fabric backed wallcovering line, at the DC Design House this year. The results are absolutely stunning, it is so easy to use and could not be more pleased with the look and rave reviews so far!"

"The perfect solution for a space where no Wallcovering will do. The slubby grey Robert Allen silk was backed and easily installed. The center hall and grand entry are classically and exquisitely upholstered!
