A Nature Design Decorative Screen: The Maple Leaves Pattern

As it's autumn now, it seems fitting to feature one of our nature pattern decorative screen designs, 'Maple'. This design is a cascading array of gently falling maple leaves. It is especially suited to outdoor placement around a patio or garden, and thus made in a material that will weather well for years to come, such as compressed hardwood, aluminium, mild steel, acm (aluminium composite material), and most especially corten. Why especially corten? Because this high-strength material is made to rust; it is a lovely rust-color when new and becomes more so as it weathers, and never requires painting or maintenance. It is thus very similar to the maple leaf autumnal color.

Here is a tall vertical corten 'Maple' screen along the right hand side of the QAQ headquarters building that was hung a number of years ago:

Of course, 'Maple' could also be cut in an indoor material such as plywood or MDF and painted or stained to suit an indoor nature-themed decor style. The design evokes a warm and relaxing feeling, a bit like the beginning of autumn does.

Here a few products in autumn colors that evoke the nature-lovers style:
