The hottest wall decor trends for 2018: the best sellers on e-commerce stores
The hottest wall decor trends for 2018 according to e-commerce stores
After an indefinite hiatus, wallpapers are back in action to play a key role in our homes, by providing an ultra-versatile means for shaking up interiors without necessarily revamping the whole furniture set. Made out from innovative materials and next-gen manufacturing techniques, will modern wallpapers still be a roaring trend for 2018? Apparently yes, at least according to many e-commerce stores and their best selling items lists: as a matter of fact, walls are no longer a tedious affair barely requiring a coat of white primer, but have now become a significant addition to the domestic space. Let’s leaf through a range of different styles – from green to floral, graphic and vintage – and spot the juiciest current trends.
Made in Design | Mont Rose by Pandarosa, Ferm Living’s Harlequin & Domestic
Scenic wallpapers provide a decor feature of monumental proportions, hence opening a virtual window on the outside environment – whether real or fictional. Slightly forgotten after its 1970s uncontrolled success, today scenic wallpaper is given fresh new life by The New Domestic Landscape, which asked a dozen artists, designers and graphic designers to rehabilitate this layout type by dropping a selection of 100% modern decors. Landscapes may be dreamy or introspective, urban or rural, nostalgic or prospective, and are printed on high-quality intissé paper though the collage technique. The mountain landscape inhabited by fantasy creatures pictured above is created by Pandarosa.
Modern patterns and geometric motifs intertwine with warm, delicate chromatic tones in Ferm Living’s geometric wallpaper inspired to Nordic nature, as well as to fashion, architecture, travelling, and the galaxy of small things. Designed by Trine Anderson for the Danish brand, such feast of harmonious decors turns into an actual artwork once it wraps our walls.
Archiproducts | Elation and Arcade B wallpapers by Texturae
Bold colours, extreme juxtapositions, iconic forms, perspectives pointing the infinite and beyond: the Warp Collection by Studio Proba boasts an unparalleled personality, with elements defining and shaping the space: indeed, instead of hiding, they show off a distinctly decorative taste in-between graphics and photography. Light is refracted and fragmented into colours, whilst modelling the surrounding spatial layout and giving life to actually artistic canvases.
From the same brand, Arcade B features curved volumes reminiscent of the clean and neat geometries of De Chirico’s metaphysical paintings: five blue-green curved architectural elements on a light pink background. The contrasting colours give shape to a sense of depth and instil a slightly nostalgic yet peaceful atmosphere. Made entirely of vinyl, this wallpaper is durable and eco-friendly.
