Appel Design Group, P.A., Architects (ADG) is a New York based multi-award winning full service architectural firm. ADG chose Panasphere Premium Surfaces in the design of their new office space. Panasphere premium decorative panels from the Burl line was used to bring in wood grain accents and realistic wood textures into the office space. Additionally, Omaha Cherry was used to create an elegant surround/media center for the presentation room.

Customer Testimonial:

“We first saw samples of the Panasphere Laminate Panels when we were designing our new office space. We really liked several of the samples and decided that the Arusha Wenge would be a great accent trim for the finishing wall caps (horizontal and vertical) and cubbies. We particularly liked the way the texture worked with the wood grain as well as how realistic the edge banding looked. Having not worked with the product before, we were cautiously optimistic of our expectations. The end result was fantastic … durable, cost effect, and looks great. As a result of this first experience, we decided to add decorative panels of Omaha Cherry to trim out a TV monitor in our conference room.”
