Abstract Flock Wallpaper

A trending style in flock wallpaper is abstract flock wallpapers, in this range of luxurious wallpapers the flock wallpaper picks out the detail in an abstract design creating visually stunnning tactile backdrops to any room. The result is a modern contemporary style which is accentuated by the flock wallpaper rather than the making the flock itself be the dominant style.

Luxury fashion house, Missoni, released this fantastic flock wallpaper, Fiamma, as part of their Missoni Home 2 Collection of wallpapers. The fiamma design resembles flowing water or wood grain adding a subtle abstract design which does not overpower the room.
