As Glasgow’s first and long awaited cat café prepared to finally open its doors for business and permanent residency, the owner asked us to supply appropriate wall panels for her feline friendly venture.

Client considerations

The Purrple Cat Café in the Trongate provides roaming space for 21 cats, while offering customers a different kind of cafe experience. The owner needed wall panels with the right look and quality for the food preparation area, while being suitable for the environment and its four legged lodgers.

Our solutions

Our Selkie wall panels were the obvious choice for this particular environment. With their hygienic qualities and easy to clean system, they offer the added bonus of being relatively scratch resistant. The biggest decision for the owner was choosing the right design from our newly re-vamped range.

From a choice of 30 decors, she opted for our Travertine Rain Selkie® Panel. A sister product of our Silver Rain design, Travertine adopts the same quality, but is created from a more wood inspired mix of burnt browns and pastel shades.

End result

The overall effect from the wall panels was a very natural and indigenous appeal - perfect for the look the owner wanted to create for her venue.
