We’re half way through the year and there couldn’t be a better time to review statement-making trends taking over the design world! Here are three trends we are embracing:


Craftsmanship

Modern and contemporary spaces are being transformed with the addition of unique, handcrafted pieces from around the world. There is an appreciation for pieces, which showcase the true artistry of making furniture by hand, and an artisan’s attention to detail. Whether it’s sculpted metal, blown glass, or mixed materials that fit together like a puzzle piece, there is a level of creativity, quality and uniqueness that only an experienced, deft hand could produce. These pieces add an organic and raw element to furniture, which instantly adds character to any interior space.

Texture

Texture like cowhide, leather and luxurious fabrics are ideal for creating depth and dimension within a space, adding gravitas to the design. Various materials and fabrics can add comfort and luxury to spaces infusing them with a unique, interesting aesthetic.
