Curved furniture, wooden wonders, play of patterns and subtle metals marvels will dominate 2018 interiors. These four settings from the dining to the bedroom show how to translate these trends in your home.
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“UNLIKE LAST YEAR WHERE METAL WAS LOUD AND OVER-THE-TOP, THIS YEAR IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY SUBTLETY WITH A TOUCH OF SOPHISTICATION.”
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.
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.
