Every year there are new colours and designs in every product area responding to global and local influences, cultural and lifestyle trends and changes.

Wallcovering manufacturers regularly bring out new colours and designs too; sometimes subtle variations in colour and texture, or more dramatic patterns.

The trend to patterned, printed and embroidered fabrics has seen an equal shift to dramatic, “look at me” wallpapers.

Rich and rococo-inspired patterns slightly over-scale and often with a play of metallic shimmer against a matt background; updated retro geometric designs of the 60s and 70s; and re-worked floral and botanical prints are key trends featuring in design magazines.

It’s all part of the international swing away from minimalism into glamour, luxury and pattern.
