New Interior Design Ideas: Laser-Engraved Art

Most homeowners decorate around an artistic theme-a set of images and color palette. They painstakingly search, often with an interior decorator, for tiles, hardwoods, marble, fabrics, and other materials consistent with their theme. But while they may identify the centerpiece of their design theme, locating complementary accents to complete the motif is often a more difficult task.

The result often finds homeowners settling for less-than-ideal choices-compromises reflecting what’s available, rather than what is possible.

Enter LightWave Art, with its ability to give homeowners a new measure of design flexibility and control. While the company is nestled in Montana’s spectacular Bitterroot Valley, its founding vision is global: applying laser-engraving technology to interior design, and creating an infinite number of previously unavailable design options.

In practical terms, this means taking the laser’s ability to replicate any image scanned into its computer and applying it to ordinary building elements-floors, doors, windows, mirrors, walls, countertops-giving them an artistic and thematic dimension.

For example, homeowners could choose living room furniture with a particular fabric, pattern, and colors, and then use laser engraving to create their own decorative floor tiles to match the furniture. This artistic theme, once defined, could extend to anything else-perhaps a custom marble wall mural accenting an adjacent fireplace, or something more subtle, like laser-bonded imagery gracing the corner of cabinet doors or mirrors

To give homeowners even more options for their ideal entry, kitchen, den, or bath, LightWave Art developed a new technology that permanently engraves images in color: laser-bonding color pigments onto wood, tile, stone, or even difficult surfaces like marble, granite, limestone and glass, to match a particular design’s color scheme. This colorized imagery-as hard as the underlying material, suitable for outdoors, designed for foot traffic, as well as fade and stain resistant-creates the potential for design vision becoming reality, without compromise.

The essential point is this: a homeowner’s chances of finding items like front entry doors, cabinet doors, glass inserts, tiled countertops, hardwood floors, marble backsplashes, and mirrored murals all with the same artistic theme, are usually slim to none. Design compromises, which were once a given, may be a thing of the past with this new capability in a homeowner’s design toolbox.

Homeowners pondering an interior design project may want to contact LightWave Art, to view samples of its laser engraved, color bonded artwork. (With new concepts, seeing is often believing.) Visiting the company in person provides a chance to do this and take in the panoramic vistas of western Montana at the same time. Then again, anyone shy about crossing paths with the bears and mountain lions prowling LightWave Art’s property can visit them online at
