Deco Trends: Grasscloth Wallcoverings
If I was to list the most unexpected design trends spotted at the London Design Week, Jindo grass wallpaper would be in the top spot. Traditionally, grass wallpaper was a bit ”grandma”, plus they had the tendency to become dust-gatherers and worst case have scuffed patches. However, the new generation of grass wallpapers are not only different in design, many of them they have a vinyl covering which give them a longer lifespan and allow them to be used in different areas.
Thibaut Wallpapers have several cool designs, some of them with a metallic effect that works well in a small cloakroom (oh the glamour!). Brian Yates also make grass wallpapers, but in the more traditional style. Their Japanese inspired Akoya collection is made from tree variations of sisal fibre and have a semi-brilliant finish that brings depth and drama to a room.
