Context: A manufacturer of partition walls describing its products/services.

Any ideas concerning possible translation of "bildhaft" here? The usual translations - pictorial, visual, clear - don't seem to fit. TIA.

English translation:Exceptional/ seamless/ high quality/ beautiful
Explanation:
I'd guess that the bildhafte, i.e., visual aspect of high quality veneer is that the breaks are invisible. Therefore, it's beautiful to look at because you can's see any seams or breaks, the wood patterning is continuous, etc.
