Trend :: Flocking

Last year, I was caught in a showroom in the Boston Design Center petting the wallpaper.  Flocked wallpaper is one of my guilty pleasures, it seems so wrong but it feels - and looks - so nice.  {At some point we should also discuss that amazing Charles Loomis chandelier.}

Graham and Brown is a great resource for flocked paper.

Recently I've been noticing a lot of flocked lighting and accessories around, especially in the UK.  I'm hoping it's a trend that is around to stay for a while.  My favorite are flocked chandeliers.  Some are more subtle than others, all are bright colors.

Some are completely flocked except for the bulbs.

This chandelier has a bit more subtle flocking, it's only on the metal structure of the light.

For flocked lighting that is a bit more subtle than a chandelier, there are some simple pendants with colorful flocking inside.

If you are brave, or like spraying things, you flock your own stuff as this chandelier owner did and you can find supplies for it here.  If anyone actually does this, I would love to see the result.

Happy flocking!
