The use of wallpaper in One Society has become a conversation starter. In the makeup area, the paper features photos of beautiful women with message in French and in the manicure/pedicure area, the paper looks like fogged glass with greenery.

Owner’s comment: “Our living wall in the lobby features succulents in glass bulb vases that grow up the wall and bring a sense of life and organic beauty to the space. The plants not only bring nature into the space but creates art on the wall.”
