Who is Arte?

When Arte began, it had a passion for beautiful wallcoverings. For the most diverse interiors - from the most sumptuous and traditional to the most austere and avant-garde. Arte products represent quality and elegance and bear witness to good taste and refinement. No wonder that you find Arte wallcoverings around the world, in residential interiors as well as in a variety of project designs.

The company, which is based in the heart of Europe in Zonhoven, Belgium, has always sailed an international course. Today, Arte is active in more than 80 countries and its products are sold around the world through a network of distributors in the retail and project markets. Those who want to see things for themselves are warmly invited to one of our showrooms in Paris and Cannes (France), in London (UK) or in Culemborg (The Netherlands).

Arte wallcoverings are created in-house. A team of experienced designers devise the loveliest and most original creations. The starting principle is that the end result must always be innovative and trendsetting. But that is not all. No detail is overlooked. Design and colour are essential, of course, but just as much attention is given to the quality and the practicality of the material. It is therefore not surprising that the development of a new collection can take more than a year.

In addition to the creation, the production, too, is done in Arte's own factory, where the most advanced printing and other technologies are used. The entire production process is carried out in an environmentally-friendly way and results in high-quality products. A small number of products are produced externally. Such production assignments are reserved for a precious few suppliers who have the same standards for quality and sustainability as Arte itself. Arte's products meet the strictest environmental standards.

Some in the wallcovering sector consider Arte to be an outsider. Not only because of its products, but also for the innovative way in which it presents its sample books. They have an important marketing role for both the consumer and the professional market. Nor does Arte lack an international image; the company is prominent at the most important trade fairs in the sector.

Early in 2008, Arte launched a second brand.  Against the traditional, 'streetwise to the bone' and completely devoted to stylish wallcoverings: HOOKEDONWALLS. You should expect the unexpected from this young wallcovering brand in a world that has been on cruise control for far too long. With a precocious interpretation of the latest trends, HOOKEDONWALLS is determined to shake things up a bit. Vive la révolution.
