As spring marks a sense of renewal, these are the top five decorating trends for the season and the products that will inspire you with new ideas to update your homes.
Weaving has recaptured the hearts of enthusiasts of handmade objects
Weaving has corrected its outdated image, showing its contemporary side. It is infinitely rich because you can play with textures, materials and colors.
Drucker’s multi-hued, structured Beaux Arts chair in rattan with satinated weave recreates that warm Parisian bistro feeling in your home, while Feelgood Designs’ cantilevered Kaki lounge chair adopting an autumnal rust shade consists of a natural fiber shell made from a handwoven production process that helps to keep this traditional craft alive.
Jette Scheib’s Grass lighting collection in woven abaca yarn for Forestier expresses the peace that resides in the weaving process, and its stripes evoke the landscapes of cultivated fields.
Design goes recycling
Combining beauty and sustainability, functionality and responsibility, this is the virtuous approach of a new guard conscientious of the environment. Between eco-design and recycled materials, contemporary designers are reacting to the limits of over-consumption. Recycled paper, metal and plastic are now at the top of the list of pioneering materials that are every bit as good as their unjustly considered more noble counterparts.
Aware of the urgency of integrating the preservation of the planet and its resources into its production methods, Noma Editions’ Laime 42 sofa with lacquered steel tube structure designed by Charlotte Juillard is made from 42 % recycled materials.
