Wallpaper Weekly, no. 34 / Flat Vernacular Latest + Greatest

Manufacturer: Flat Vernacular / Patterns: Metropolis, Precipice 

Flat Vernacular "Metropolis"

Flat Vernacular "Precipice"

Two stunning new geometric patterns debuted at ICFF from our friends at Flat Vernacular (you may remember them from the custom designed paper they created for the new restaurant Alison Eighteen, aka Wallpaper Weekly, no. 21??).  Not only do we love these new prints, but we can’t get enough of these two important facts: all of their patterns are designed and developed in Brooklyn and printed in upstate New York. Local lovin.
