Hybrid panel: Simla by Smith & Fong

Simla is fabricated using a 100% Indonesian coconut palm core with face and back veneers made of Indian sugar palm in the DecoPalm motif.

Bamboo and palm interior finishes manufacturer Smith & Fong has launched Simla, a new hybrid panel derived from both coconut and sugar palm.

Simla is fabricated using a 100-percent Indonesian coconut palm core with face and back veneers made of Indian sugar palm in the DecoPalm motif. The panels, manufactured at Smith & Fong’s Formosa facility, use 100 percent formaldehyde-free adhesives and are finished in either hand-rubbed polyurethane or natural oil.

The panels work for interior applications using Smith & Fong’s Monarch wall-cleating system. Also good for cabinetry and fixturing, Simla’s look is flexible with a linear relief pattern and Deco design face. This motif works for both modern and contemporary or even tropical interiors. The panels come in dimensions of either 3/4” x 36” x 96” (19mm x 915mm x 2438mm) or 3/4” x 48” x 96” (19mm x 915mm x 2438mm).
