The Denfair exhibition held in Melbourne in June 2017 provided some great insights for future trends. In a nutshell:
The trends which are set to continue:
- the Scandi look
- metallics such as brass fittings
- Navy coloured soft furnishings such as sofas, bedding and cushions
- Velvet soft furnishings
My must have item of the exhibition was the Lumio lamp which is available from Top 3 by design. The lamp, designed by Max Gunawan, looks like a book but folds out to 360 degrees. It comes in a blonde maple or walnut timber finish. The Lumio is cordless and is charged by a micro-USB charger. It can also be hung by a beautiful leather strap which is included. It’s great to see a functional design piece which is a such a talking point.
These gorgeous Bolle chandeliers designed by Giopato & Coombes, are available from District. The bubble shapes evoke an effervescent feel as though you are transcending a bottle of champagne. They would be an impressive statement piece in a foyer or even in a large entertaining area (with a high ceiling of course!)
