At LOFT, our finger remains fixed on the interior design pulse, keeping abreast of the latest fashion and trends.
Below, we sum up some of the interior design trends we expect to see throughout 2016.
Interest in handmade Artisan goods has grown of late. Even though a lot of Artisan goods are now mass produced, the handmade look and feel of these items has helped to stoke a growing interest in them.
From tassels and basketry to macrame and crochet, weaving is in. Check out these gorgeous Flamant baskets we currently have available at LOFT.
The use of minerals
Watch for a rise in pyrite bowls, chunks of quartz and unpolished-precious stones around the home in 2016. Minerals that have colour and texture will pop in a room that is sleek and modern. When looking to decorate using minerals, do be careful to consider the theme of the room. If the room has a more circular theme, be sure to add items that are also more circular. If the room is square, you guessed it, use square shaped minerals.
The kitchen offers the perfect space to experiment with geometric tiles and in 2016, we expect more and more people to be using them. A timeless combination of black and white in a strong, eye catching pattern will always make for a spectacular feature. Whether used as a backsplash or adorning an entryway floor, geometric tiles give an interesting new look to your space. Check out these stunning collections by Coordonné, available from LOFT.
With the 1950s slowly coming back into style, we believe that more and more people will experiment with mixing different metal types such as platinum, gold, copper and steel just like they did back then.
Florals and bold prints
We believe that big, bold, floral prints will be a major trend on walls and soft furnishings next year. By using a combination of floral colours and bold prints that tie in with surrounding décor, you can quickly liven up your space. Check out these fabrics by Sanderson and Gaston y Daniela, both stocked at LOFT.
