Fibrous plaster in décor

Fibrous plaster is an ancestral material yet one of the latest trends in terms of layouts and interior décor. It’s used everywhere from furniture to ceilings, by way of accessories.

Materials experts, architects, designers and decorators are all seizing on it to devise extraordinary, refined décor.

Thanks to its great malleability, fibrous plaster can push the limits of creativity and design. Appearing in many prestigious locations, fibrous plaster was recently featured in the French version of the magazine Elle Decoration.

“Whimsy and splendor: the revival of fibrous plaster”

Made of a mix of plaster of Paris and plant fibre, fibrous plaster is frequently used to make roses, cornices and mouldings.

But more and more decorators and architects these days are putting it to completely different use. They want to showcase its architectural and ornamental advantages in bold projects.

Used in geometric motifs, textured surfaces and sculpted objects, fibrous plaster can bend to any requirement and is an excellent fit for any interior layout and décor project.

Fibrous plaster pieces are manufactured and sculpted from zinc templates or silicone moulds, allowing them to take on multiple looks, shapes and textures.

“Fibrous plaster provides a neutral base which can be imbued with the desired power.”

Laura Gonzalez I Elle Décoration I SE no. 6

Fibrous plaster can be confused with materials like wood, rough stone or brick thanks to texture imitations and amazingly realistic materials. 

Fibrous plaster is sturdy and not affected temperature fluctuations, so it can be employed just as easily in spas as in hotel receptions.
