Here are some design trends that are available now and to watch out for this year…
PAINTED PLAINS COWHIDE RUG BY BRIT KLEINMAN OF AVO STUDIO
Cowhide rugs are still popular and are being used as solitary floor coverings as well as being layered on broadloom. Showing versatility with colour and pattern is giving the hides their staying power – being able to be used in different design styles, from modern, old-world, eclectic and juxtaposed against different design eras.
With its very definite 1920s vibe, Watermark Designs Paris faucet collection in Rose Brass finish is at home in any environment looking for an elegant touch of nostalgia imbued with the style known as Art Deco. Solid brass, with a 7 ¼” high spout.
OUTDOOR LIVING – REFRIGERATION > Huge Trend this year
With U-Line’s outdoor refrigeration and ice making capabilities, the backyard is transformed into a relaxed
functional spacewith the comforts and accessibility of an indoor kitchen. These durable outdoor units come
with a fully wrapped stainless steel cabinet and door to help withstand outdoor elements.
All the evocative power of classic patterns that take us back to bygone childhoods, a family atmosphere, is expressed in
Majolica, decorated earthenware pottery with an opaque white glaze. Colourful and graphic tiles. The reinterpretation
of colour and the emphatic use of changed scales creates a dynamic and thrilling effect for floors, walls and ceilings.
WALLCOVERINGS > GETTING STRONGER EVERY YEAR
Named after liquid mercury for its fluid movement and reflection of light, the metallic
“LIQUID WALLCOVERING COLLECTION” is available in 26 pleated textures and 30 colours. It is also eco-friendly
as it uses water-based adhesives during the pleating process and to apply the wallcovering backing.
Joe Doucet, 2014. Angled mirror, hand-cut and beveled. Birch plywood frame. Available in clear, grey or bronze mirror.
Features: strong geometric shapes with a shelving unit that floats like a cloud over its console base.
Available in a variety of lacquer and wood options, this piece can be structured to fit perfectly in any modern living room.
Considered to be the “fifth wall”, area rugs, that are intentionally artistic that they resemble masterly works of art, are
trending strongly now. Especially interesting are irregular patterns reminiscent of brush strokes of paint that draw
the eyes in…
