Inspired by the latest trends as well as traditional techniques, we have collaborated with exciting British brand 17 Patterns on designs for the home available exclusively from the Warehouse Home shop.

17 Patterns produce dynamic, distinctive wallpapers through a unique multiple-artist approach. While exploring creative directions with Warehouse Home, 17 Pattern’s innovative founder, designer Nosca Inc, conceived a dramatic new wallpaper inspired by the surface corrosion of metal. Sinuous veins of colour evoke a sense of urban decay, while the use of a rich midnight blue elevates the concept to sophisticated splendour.

Physical processes behind the wallpaper’s design inspired its name Acro-, from Nosca Inc’s personal fear of heights or Acrophobia. 17 Patterns artist Paris painted lines and drips onto a canvas from a great height. Creative collaborator Christina K then applied eroding techniques to this artwork. Finally, the piece was expertly digitally manipulated and transformed in the studio by Nosca Inc.
