GSky’s Versa Wall highlights new West Elm home furnishings store in Seattle
GSKY’S VERSA WALL IN NEW WEST ELM HOME FURNISHINGS STORE IN SEATTLE
VANCOUVER, B.C. , Oct. 20, 2011 – GSky’s newest Green Wall is on display at the West Elm home furnishings store on West Lake Ave. in Seattle. The trendy store is part of the Williams-Sonoma portfolio and features many products that are 100 percent green.
GSky’s Versa Wall at West Elm, approximately 12 feet tall and 16 feet wide, reflects the brand’s modern design style and provides customers with a pleasant, soothing shopping experience. GSky designer Debbie Kotalic worked with designers from West Elm to develop the Versa Wall’s plant design layout, which is located directly behind the checkout counters and centered to be visible throughout the store.
The Versa Wall features 1,140 plants, including Philodendron Cordatum, Golden Pothos, Rabbits Foot Fern, Neon Pothos, Zebrina Pendula, N-Joy Pothos, Baby’s Tears Pilea.
“This was a terrific project for GSky and were honored to work with a such a renowned company as Williams-Sonoma,” said GSky Plants Systems, Inc. President Chad Sichello. “It’s really win-win for everybody. Williams-Sonoma and West Elm get a beautiful green wall in the store and GSky gets to show off another one of our Versa Walls.”
Developed in response to the increased demand for Green Walls in offices, GSky’s Versa Wall System is a “customizable, low maintenance, Green Wall system” ideal for those who want versatile plant designs in their indoor office environment.
The Versa Wall design specifically caters to the needs of the interior plant maintenance industry. Its design employs standard practices used by interior plant maintenance companies so that plants can be easily maintained, refreshed and replaced as required with very little effort. For example, the Versa Wall plants can be easily changed out for seasonal updates to the wall, such as putting in Poinsettas for the Winter holiday season, or herbs can be put in the wall and refreshed on a weekly basis for a restaurant.
Furthermore, the watering system has been greatly simplified on the wall. Plants are irrigated by a trickle-down watering system that can be installed using a hidden water tank and pump so that the system does not require changes to interior plumbing lines.
“We have received great interest so far for the Versa Wall because it’s been engineered specifically for the interior environment and offers the same great plant design flexibility as our Pro Wall product, but with much improved maintenance practices for the interior environment,“ Sichello said
