These wallpaper collections will add an artistic sensibility to your interiors and portray the latest design trends and innovations in wallpaper.
DESIGNER WALLPAPER: EDWARD VAN VLIET
Edward Van Vliet is a contemporary Dutch designer whose love of pattern and product design has led him to create a company for product, textile, and interior design, as well as brand and concept development. Inspired by a rich blend of cultural and mathematical influences, Van Vliet's wallpaper collection, available to buy online at Walls Republic, fuses together simple layered patterns and powerful contemporary colours.
"Good design seems simple at first sight, but the power is in the layering. This [wallpaper's] strength is in its simplicity; its attraction in its layering..It's all about going one step further; to make a powerful design with simple lines. Light, layers, colours, patterns and cultures are important design keys." - Van Vliet
Van Vliet's layered wallpaper patterns such as Billows or Netted tap into the current trellis pattern trend that is seen all over interior design. With contemporary design elements such as layering and non-traditional trellis forms, these wallpapers are an on trend wallpaper option for your home. This pattern is great in a hallway for creating subtly elegant movement and depth.
Geometric prints are also another increasingly popular 2014 design trend. These layered patterns bring an illusionistic look with striking graphics and crisp line work. Geometry is mixed with organic curvilinear forms for a sharp contemporary aesthetic. Van Vliet's play on layering is highly evident and adds depth and dimension to your interiors for a mesmerizing look with bold pops of colour.
