Going around the Benz - the Mercedes Benz showroom, Nelson

Mercedes Benz Showroom With a natural magnetic attraction associated with high powered premium vehicles, the cars on sale at the Mercedes Benz showroom in Rutherford Street, Nelson are undoubtedly the cause of many a lotto ticket purchase.

The Mercedes Benz brand is the perfect embodiment of innovation, technology and style. With a reputation to uphold, only a top class paint system would be a fitting backdrop.

Paperfaced plasterboard throughout the interior was coated in Resene Zylone Sheen for a luxurious low sheen finish with the added benefit of low odour minimising showroom downtime. A feature wall of Resene Saffron (rich orange yellow) punches out from the back of the showroom to draw eyes inward. Resene Black White (off white) adorns remaining wall and ceiling areas with a touch of additional colour in the form of Resene Bay of Many (deep purple blue) featuring in the restroom areas.

With a lot full of Mercedes Benz that even the most civilised car buyer would drool over, this showroom oozes style both inside and out.
