This Is Happening: Shiplap Walls

Updated 10/02/17
Product Disclosure

Shiplap walls are having a renaissance. Characterized by horizontal (and sometimes vertical) panels, the boards overlap each other to create a weather-tight seal. This practical construction makes them the perfect inexpensive wall option for barns, outbuildings, and seasonal homes in harsher climates. These days shiplap has firmly moved beyond its merely sensible application and is now commonly incorporated as a less formal way to add textural interest to a space. We love how easily it brings a historic vibe to any space that is refined and thoughtful yet casual.
