Trends We’re Coveting Right Now

June 8th, 2017

Earlier today we shared some snaps of our recent trip to Milan to visit the Salone del Mobile, the international furniture and trade fair attending by hundreds of thousands of industry professionals each year. It was certainly an eye-opener as a first time visitor and at times overwhelming with the sheer amount of information to take in. We returned to the studio with a suitcase filled with fresh and inspiring new catalogues, samples and contacts in the industry, as well as some fresh new inspiration and lots of energy to put some of the trends we spotted into action! We have scoured the net since returning to the studio and have put together our top 3 trends that we’re coveting right now, showing you how to make them work in your own homes and projects.

PATTERN TREND | LINES

Not that stripes or lines of the vertical and horizontal nature are original by any means, but we have spotted more and more examples of primarily vertical lines in architecture, interior design (from materials to finishes) and textile design of late and we can’t help but be drawn in by the simplicity yet intricacy they bring to spaces and structures alike. Clean, contemporary and striking, it’s incredible how a vertical collection of lines can elevate a space. We had already been applying this inspiration to several projects, but here is a collection of examples that are totally floating our boats right now.

Scenes of Milan

June 8th, 2017

Hey guys! The weeks are disappearing before our very eyes as we are busy installing our first interior design projects as a duo (three projects rounding off this month!), shooting several projects for beautiful brands including Rex Kralj, Vertigo Bird and People of the Sun (in Greece!) as well as developing our remote interior design package. We’ve had lots of enquiries coming in from you lovely folks who read this blog and for that we are very grateful. And though time has flown by since we returned from a trip to the Salone del Mobile in Milan we thought we’d drop in today to share some scenes of this urban, bustling and green city for you, and then later today a few trends we picked up on while there.

We had both never been to Milan prior to this trip. In fact, aside from this recent visit, I myself have never been to Italy at all (except for a fleeting two day stint in Florence), a situation I endeavour to rectify on the short term. Obviously, as we were attending the design fair it was all “work work work work work” so we stayed away from tourist sites and focused on wandering the streets (mainly in the Tortona – where we stayed – and Brera areas) and in an out of shows and presentations, stopping intermittently for wine, olives and people-watching.
