Wallpaper is no longer the home decoration of choice for dusty old houses. Instead, it’s having a creative revival thanks to modern takes on the medium. Case in point: A wallpaper from designer Mario Romano that’s not actually paper at all.

According to Fast Company, Romano worked with the chemical company DuPont to create custom wall coverings made out of a material called Corian. The material is comprised of acrylic polymer and alumina trihydrate, which gives it a textured thickness that can be CNC machined into various patterns.
