Our Eco Story

It was the mid-1990s when Versa Designed Surfaces CEO Phil Tarullo began hearing about Interface founder Ray Anderson’s quest to transform the carpet industry. Inspired by Anderson’s passion for sustainable manufacturing practices, Tarullo searched for ways to improve Versa Designed Surfaces' environmental footprint and to model that example for the wallcoverings industry. 

Tarullo believes that technology is a key driver in pioneering sustainability advancements. To that end, he invested in what he calls “technovations” that today position Versa Designed Surfaces at the forefront of the wallcoverings industry.  Versa Designed Surfaces was one of the first companies to adopt water-based inks and to make its entire line low-VOC.  In 2006, the global manufacturer invented the first recycling technology for post-consumer wallcoverings.  Second-Look has won six awards from the A&D community.  See Complete Eco Story
