EASY DOES IT

FUR­NI­TURE & DÉ­COR: Rosvi Gae­tos, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Design Cen­ter of the Philip­pines (DCP), says that “there will be more light and soft, graphic print tex­tures in home fur­nish­ing,” with pal­ettes that in­clude “blush, retro, and gray tones.” Ac­cord­ing to ma­jor in­ter­na­tional trend agency Pro­mostyl, (www.pro­mostyl.com), fur­nish­ings will take on an “Easy DIY” con­cept for 2017, with Norm­core and LOL­core (a trend that puts em­pha­sis on whimsy, car­toon­ish pat­terns and child­like col­ors) trends as in­spi­ra­tion. The de­sired com­po­si­tion is pol­ished but not per­fect; co­he­sive but with hints of kook­i­ness. Al­though this trend cel­e­brates the hand­made and the old, it does not en­cour­age mag­pie ten­den­cies and clut­ter.

Now is the time to bring out that macramé wall hang­ing you have picked up from a trip, or that knit­ted chair you bought from a fur­ni­ture fair—check out the RADA chair be­low made by de­signer Rachelle Dagñalan, which was ex­hib­ited in Manila FAME. Ac­cent pieces that are casual and fun, like these Aki clocks by Wataru Sakuma, can be grouped to­gether for im­pact. The key is to make a state­ment that’s play­ful and intimidating.
