The Emerging Design Trends You Need to Know About
The following six pieces have been around the décor world for years, but lately, we’re really seeing a rise in their popularity and availability to consumers. From polished organic elements like a teak root table to rose gold hardware that adds a hint of femininity, these are the emerging trends to layer into your interior design this season.
The perfect way to make a unexpected statement in a dining space or other areas where a traditional chandelier might be, delicate globe lanterns are popping up everywhere lately. We love the Asian-inspired vibe they add to a room, not to mention the potential play on scale you can create depending on the diameter of the globe you opt for.
While we love ourselves a fiddle leaf fig, we’re throwing our weight behind the palm as the indoor tree of the future. With so many species, sizes, and shapes available, a palm tree can fit into virtually any style interior. It’s the perfect accent piece, a way to add a pop of colour to your design, and—depending on the size—can become an entire room’s focal point.
Shibori, a Japanese tie-dying technique, is available in a variety of different patterns depending on the folding and tying that was done before the fabric is dipped in a mostly indigo dye. We’re particularly smitten with the faded look of these patterns, which work wonderfully as accents on pillows or for a more bold statement as a wallcovering.
Raw, organic wood furniture, where the edge of the log or intricacies of the root system are left intact, is a perfect way to bring the outdoors inside and give your space a rustic feel. Contemporary versions of these pieces are using straight-cut lines and smooth finishes to make the raw elements work for the modern homeowner. Not for the perfectionist, the asymmetry and irregular shapes of these items add depth and visual interest to any décor.
