GRAPH­ICS AND DE­SIGN It is won­der­ful to see an up­swing in graphic de­sign de­tail­ing across con­tem­po­rary liv­ing spa­ces to­day. This now has an al­most pre­scient pres­ence over any kind of ex­pres­sion, be it in fur­ni­ture, wall­pa­pers, floor­ings, fur­nish­ings, rugs and home ac­ces­sories. Graphic de­tail­ing helps de­fine or cre­ate a prod­uct lan­guage. With­out this de­tail, a prod­uct is al­most voice­less.

CUR­RENT TRENDS De­tail­ing in the new neu­trals of taupe, ivory, beige and sand, gives de­tail with­out call­ing too much at­ten­tion to it­self. Geo­met­ric shapes—a mix of dif­fer­ent de­tails—in con­trast­ing or com­pli­men­tary tex­tures are some of the key emerg­ing trends. Another emerg­ing trend is graphic art in homes. All kinds of won­der­ful ren­di­tions rang­ing from ty­pog­ra­phy to il­lus­tra­tions are all tak­ing pride of place in homes.

COST Starts at `2,500 (cush­ions) to `27,500 (flat­ware)
