As 2016 draws to a close, it’s time to start planning for 2017. We’ve been checking out what the world’s top interior designers have to say, and we’re starting to get excited. With big shake ups and new additional ranges in store, there is plenty to look forward to in 2017.
Checks are here to stay
Continuing on from the tartan-tastic autumn trends, checks are here to stay. Throws, rugs, carpets, wallpaper, sofas… you name it, tartan and checks are the way to go in 2017. For those brave enough to go for all out tartan walls, we salute you, but for everyone else, our Downton sofa collection offers subtle tartan cushions, with a classic tartan fabric chair.
Cork is back
From pin boards to sound proofing, cork has a number of benefits, but interior experts see it as one of the key interior design trends of 2017. With the rustic look creeping into society around five years ago, it has never gone away, and the use of natural materials has only become more popular in recent years. 2016 saw an influx of copper and rose gold accessories, and it is likely that cork products will be everywhere in 2017.
Every home in the 90s was filled with terracotta, and the natural material is likely to make a comeback in 2017. Previously this Mediterranean style colour had been used to create a border round the room, but home owners are being encouraged to use terracotta tiles in their kitchen and living room as either flooring or as a feature wall. Our vinyl flooring option is a clever, cost saving flooring alternative to tiling.
The natural get away
As people spend more and more time immersed in technology during their working day, it’s important to be able to relax at home. Following on from cork and terracotta, rustic style wood finish will be all the rage in 2017 as the country cottage feel becomes more popular than ever before. If this is the look you want in the New Year, our Clifton furniture collection is the perfect option for you.
The vintage explorer
Globes, leather bound books, vintage suitcases and exposed light bulbs – expect to see plenty of them in 2017, because their popularity is going to reach a whole new level. 2016 has toyed with some of these trends, but it’s 2017 where they’ll really come to the fore. Add these to your tartan chair, plaid throw and rustic furniture, and you’ll have an award winning combination that will keep you cosy this winter.
