Life isn't easy for architects and interior designer who like to use natural materials to cover large surfaces. Many times, the right choice, is the worst nightmare when trying to find a reliable supplier for carefully selected materials. 

Whether it's about covering the surface of a building, the wall of a living room or a kitchen floor, the choice of the right materials and colours can become a true adventure and it's not always likely to find the more suitable ones.

Well, the Canadian manufacturer of surfacing and laminate solutions, Octopus, provides a wide range of carefully selected materials and even offers the alternative for the client to make his own choice for further production.

The company, has been providing design and wood working with special decorative finishes, since 1950. Architects, designers, furniture and fixture manufacturers who seek for a special finishing, are the main clients from all over the world.

Octopus products include laminate sheets, high pressure laminate, metal laminate, plastic laminate, modern wall panels, wood panelling, aluminium honeycomb surfaces, stainless steel surfaces, granite surfaces, copper installations, translucent panels and flooring materials.

Additionally, the Canadian producer, is also available to respond to special requests over special designs or exquisite materials. In these cases, Octopus searches the entire world for the right supplier and the right price, in order to produce the requested surface.

Plus, the company claims to have the best prices for the most exquisite requests and materials.

The wall panels are essential to lend that special aesthetic to any project. They can also provide extra isolation and protection. The range from Octopus goes from 3D, textured or decorative wall panels.

Wood is a very requested material by the customers. It's probably due to its organic grain, very pleasant to the touch; the warm feeling it provides; and its rich and wide selection of natural colours.

Very trendy, nowadays, the use of natural light can be the special touch for the special project. Thus, the company's portfolio offers a wide range of advanced translucent panels, which allow the use of both, natural and electrical lighting.

The wide range of high pressure laminate products for surfacing can be the right option when resistance from minor impacts, weather effects, temperature changes or moisture is needed.

Highly aesthetic, the granite flooring offers incredible hard-wearing and low maintenance. And, to achieve a wide variety of colours, Octopus also produces flooring products made of hardened durable Murano glass.
