AHEAD OF THE CURVE

Ac­cord­ing to Mai­son & Ob­jet curved seat­ing is a trend to watch out for this year. So, in this for­mal liv­ing room set­ting we have played with curved forms of the so­fas and teamed it with dif­fer­ent tex­tures for a luxe look.

PLAY WITH PAT­TERNS

Cel­e­brat­ing a mix of pat­terns in one set-up is a big trend in 2018. There­fore in this cosy nook be it the wooden panel back­drop, the up­hol­stered back of the chair, quilt­ing on the seat, plaid cush­ions, del­i­cate grooves on the mar­ble top and the legs of the ta­bles, pat­terns are ev­ery­where.

“MIX, MATCH AND TURN MUN­DANE IN­TE­RI­ORS INTO A THING OF BEAUTY WITH PAT­TERNS IN EV­ERY SIZE, SHAPE AND COLOUR”

“UN­LIKE LAST YEAR WHERE METAL WAS LOUD AND OVER-THE-TOP, THIS YEAR IT HAS BEEN RE­PLACED BY SUBTLETY WITH A TOUCH OF SO­PHIS­TI­CA­TION.”

DINER’S CLUB

Metal con­tin­ues to rule in­te­ri­ors, not in your face like last year, but in a more sub­tle avatar. Like in this din­ing room set­ting, where metal re­places crys­tal in the chan­de­lier and be­comes an ac­cent for the fur­ni­ture.

TOUCH WOOD

The year 2018 is all about us­ing wood dif­fer­ently and this bed­room shows off its ver­sa­til­ity. The bed it­self is cre­ated us­ing sea­soned teak with an atyp­i­cal polyester fin­ish, while the oc­ca­sional ta­bles are pol­ished to cel­e­brate wooden grains. What’s more, not only the fur­ni­ture, even the chan­de­lier and art­work are wooden.
