Art House

Mainstream furniture design has taken an exciting turn lately. Maybe you have noticed it, too. From sculptural lighting and Brutalist-inspired tables to Rothko-inspired designs, decor is getting artsy. More specifically, Museum of Modern Art worthy! And I must admit I am a huge fan. I think we can all agree that it’s not just about furniture’s function; we want the form to be equally appealing. With art galleries and museums closed, for now, our need to physically connect with art has really changed. Along with adorning our space with literal paintings and pictures, it’s interesting to see that furniture can play a pivotal role, too – the rooms in our homes can become mini art exhibits. We can be the curator of our own spaces, choosing unique furniture and decor pieces that reflect our style and needs, and bring us unending inspiration every time we enter the room.

Ahead of the curve - Arches

9 arch trend ideas

9 arch trend ideas

Have you noticed that arches are having a major moment in design? The first thing that pops into my mind when I think of an arch (or arc) is the rainbow, that perfect burst of colour in unison after a rainfall; it’s a natural wonder that always inspires. Architecture often mimics the natural world, and it’s no different with the arch, as it appeared in design as early as the second millennium BC. And the Romans famously used 200 arches in the construction of the Colosseum. Arches tend to lift the eye upward, symbolizing support, lightness and openness. These days, you can find the classic design element not just in doorways but on everything from cushions to earrings.

Rattan and cane

Au naturel with retro rattan and classic cane

Latest News


Au naturel with retro rattan and classic cane

Not just reserved for outdoor furniture anymore, rattan and cane are having a big moment inside the home too. How fitting after spending so much time indoors this spring in our collective effort to flatten the curve. With the summer season upon us, why not blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living even more? The truth is, this “au naturel” trend had already taken shape pre-pandemic. Generally, we are gravitating towards natural materials that bring in the soul and elements from nature into our abodes. Cane and rattan are natural materials, which both derive from the rattan palm, a vine from Southeast Asia. When the rattan palm is processed, it splits into two parts: cane is the thin core reed, used in webbed patterns seen in furniture applications, such as the back of a chair; the larger rattan reed material is used to weave wicker furniture and basketry.

The rising use of cane and rattan in decor is also due to the ever-growing popularity of grand-millennial style adopted by some millennials, AKA the new traditionalists. Think chintz upholstery, tassels, needlepoint and in this case, furniture made from materials once reserved for your grandmother’s screened porch.

Trending or not, cane and rattan pieces make a statement without adding visual weight in a space. You can bring in the vintage weaves with a light fixture, storage unit, chair or decor item. The major appeal for us is the cool coastal beach vibe rattan and cane evoke, and who doesn’t want to add some sweet summertime favourites inside our homes all year long?

TREND WATCH: from Venice, with Love

TREND WATCH: from Venice, with Love

by Silvana Longo

Originating in Italy’s Veneto area over 500 years ago, terrazzo is a composite material of marble chippings set into cement and polished to a super smooth finish. Created as a way to reuse the scrapped rock, this sustainable, speckled mosaic was traditionally used as flooring in Venetian palaces.

It had a moment in the sun in the ’70s but this year, building on the popularity of marble over the last few years, terrazzo offers a more colourful, more playful alternative. And its popularity in the 21st century soars beyond the floor and walls with many decor items popping up inspired by the abstract pattern. It brings texture and interest to fabrics and wallpapers, and these terrazzo-inspired items add a chic Italian vibe to your decor.
