Introducing greenery to indoor environments can soften the space and bring life to the interior where people can find ease, relaxation and comfort of a home.

GSky Plant Systems, Inc., a leading provider of vertical Green Walls recently completed two 221 square foot Versa Walls at the newly opened West Elm store in The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment shopping destination. This installation marks GSky’s entrance in the United Arab Emirates market, adding to their ever-expanding international project portfolio.

West Elm has incorporated living Green Walls in numerous locations, adopting Versa Wall as part of their new store design concept, keeping in line with their commitment to green initiatives. The Versa Walls are prominently displayed on both the upper and lower levels of the store, behind the cash wrap. Debbie Kotalic, the Director of Horticultural Design at GSky created a living, three-dimensional painting using plants such as: Philodendron Cordatum, Neon Pothos, Nephthytis “White Butterfly”, Aglaonema Silver, Dracaena Compacta “Janet Craig”, and Ficus Elastica Robusta to complete the feature, greeting customers as they enter.

“The Green Wall is designed to make shopping an enjoyable experience by adding a touch of vibrant colors that will animate the surroundings. It is an inviting, and creative sculpture perfect for enlivening the space. Introducing greenery to indoor environments can soften the space and bring life to the interior where people can find ease, relaxation and comfort of a home.” - Chad Sichello, President, GSky Plant Systems, Inc.

This project is unique in its kind since it is the first West Elm store to feature two GSky Versa Walls, doubling people’s amount of organic exposure to living, breathing plants. The Green Walls naturally draw entry into the store by being visually appealing, while heightening sensory connection to nature. In addition to the environmental benefits, the versatility of the Versa Wall makes it relatively easy to swap out the plants for different seasonal accents, uniting West Elm’s green philosophy in a single feature.

GSky Versa Wall has a recirculating irrigation system that is 100% water efficient and self-contained, making the system suitable for any interior wall without the worry of spillage. The Versa Wall is naturally beautiful, eco-friendly, customizable, durable and economical—offering flexible installation options and a variety of plant selections
