Milan Design Week 2016 Blog Series – Part 8 WALLPAPER

One of the strong themes coming through Salone del Mobile in Milan this year was a light industrial design style – concrete and brick walls combined with open metal shelving. At first glance these concrete and brick walls appeared to be just that, but nearly all of them were wallpaper.

Improvements in digital printing technology have enhanced the range and quality of wallpaper available.

The photo below is one I have taken from a new range of wallpapers at Resene and these papers are very much in line with the wallpapers on the display stands in Milan.
