Design Trends Coming Our Way!

Home > Blog

I had the exciting opportunity recently to attend 100% Design  in London. The UK Design Trade show that is definitely Blogworthy.

Staged in the beautiful Olympia Exhibition Centre in Kensington, 100% Design showcased the UK’s latest Design products, furniture & trends in the 1 venue.

Of course I was in my element!

Australia tends to follow design trends from the Northern Hemisphere & as a result I was able to obtain a sneak preview of the trends that will filter through to us in the next 12 to 18 months!

Designs / Trends Featured & Heading Our Way

– Natural, earthy surfaces & inspired surfaces were everywhere! Stone, textured concrete made to look like stone, woven timber & timber look      surfaces made a big impact!

– Nature themes extended to timber pendant lights in the form of flowers & branch inspired room dividers.

– There was a focus on bespoke, beautifully made pieces of furniture crafted from sustainable timber & animal hides.

– Danish & mid century style furniture continues to be BIG along with a resurgance of fully upholstered seating & office furniture in surprising shapes & even more surprising comfort!

– In terms of colour, mid tone primary & secondary colours were everywhere! Being slightly reduced in intensity, these will deliver a welcome & fun injection of colour in a soothing way!

– Lighting continues to be the “jewellery” of a room design. An abundance of smooth glass pendants in beautiful tear drop & organic shapes. In either clear glass or jewel tones to show off the decorative light bulbs within. Many also feature metallic (mainly copper) styling to set them off. Just Beautiful!

BUT as they say………….A picture is worth a thousand words………..SO here is several thousand words (in pictures!)
