Garish Velvet Flock, The Great UnKitsched

Here's a little touch of tackiness you all might have in your home, without even realising it.

Popular, current interior decor seems to have plastered everything in flock in the past few years. In fact in 2008, it appeared as if Next Home couldn't make anything without a flock design on it.
So has flock become so commonplace that it has unkitsched itself?

Flock patterns being kitsch come about from the whole "grandeur out of place" theme. Granny's little sitting room bedecked with a thick velvet red flock wallpaper, or the local Chinese restaurant's fancy gold & green flock walls.

Because I always have to be a quirky wee bugger, I haven't much flock in our house due to it's current trendiness, but we do have a couple of lampshades.
