Walking around with our eyes glued to a smartphone is now a widespread habit, so much so that in America the `tech walk' even has a name: the `zombie walk'. Today, more than ever before, pavements are a medium that should be seriously considered when implementing a multichannel strategy.

According to a Bain & Co. report, sales of luxury goods are expected to grow between 6% and 8% this year, putting the market between $231 billion to $327 billion! This trend can also be seen in the luxury interior decor market. A few years ago, luxury in interior design meant golden bathtubs and wall-to-wall marble. Not anymore. Now, the perception of luxury in decor is less about “things” and more about unique “experiences” such as spa bathrooms and movie theaters. People want uniqueness; a look that no one else has in their home. This trend is opening up a huge market for digital decor products. With HP PVC-free Wallcovering, designers can print one-of-a-kind murals and wall effects that are limited only by their imaginations.
