In or out ?
The trend towards indoor and outdoor furniture continues, with brands offering models that can be adapted to both environments. The desire not to distinguish between indoor and outdoor is clear
This is the case of Vincent Sheppard, who presents two tables with tops in wood or volcanic mineral, designed for both home and garden. The Frida armchair made of polypropylene rope and teak, the sofa and the low armchair, a variation on the Cleo chair, are perfect examples of this desire for universal furniture. The new colours Fossil Grey and Dune White of the woven fabric complement all the pieces in the collection.
Gommaire– Organic Living presents a sustainable range of indoor and outdoor furniture that adapts harmoniously to all types of environments, from traditional to very contemporary. The range includes glassware and ceramics, as well as new styles of baskets and woven chairs, reclaimed teak tables, upholstered chairs and sofas, coffee tables and lighting. Their extensive selection of aluminium and reclaimed teak outdoor furniture completes their collection, offering a complete solution to enhance your living space.
Ethnicraft continues its research into eco-friendly materials with a new rug made from recycled PET. It is also developing dark brown finishes for woods such as mahogany (shelves and sideboard PI) and teak, while expanding its outdoor range. The Jack aluminium armchair and other indoor models are now available for outdoor use. But it is the bedroom world that gets a fresh boost with a bed (frame and slatted base) covered with a removable linen cover. Available in two colours, dark grey and beige, it can be combined with a bedside table covered with a micro-cement coating that is part of the Eléments collection, which includes a console and coffee and side tables.
In wallpaper and fabric, the trend towards panoramic decors continues, with digital decors and landscape designs, as well as material effects such as earth, wood, concrete and moiré, stone, marble and travertine, and watercolour paints with tie-dye colour gradations. Of particular note are the Wood, Hiva, Cerreto and Terra collections by Masureel which also presents its first collection of wall decors with swelling and metallic inks, in 70 cm widths.
Casamance wallpaper explores textile effects and unusual accents, chenille on non-woven, jacquard linen, sisal, velvet, faux plains, Japanese decor or art deco with an Egyptian influence. Natural fibres, raffia and paper thread are patchwork-like laminated on a non-woven base (Solal collection). Some designs are handmade.
Manufacturer Arte develops bas-relief wall decors made of velvety microfibres with thermoformed motifs (Babylon collection). Panoramic tiles and panels feature repetitive patterns and ceramic-style plant decorations. The Métal X collection features metallic flat surfaces worked with a trowel and brush.
Ideal Work has just developed metallic coatings based on iron powder, with pewter, bronze or corten steel finishes, intended for covering wall surfaces or furniture. The Purometallo range can be worked with polished and glossy finishes, stripes and textured effects.
In rugs and carpets, the interplay of fabrics and the mix of materials create rich textures, in a sophisticated raw or vintage spirit. Angelo Rugs introduces knitted fabrics, handmade loops and imperfections that bring the material to life. The silk, bamboo or wool creations reflect the human hand and knotting gesture. The family-run company has also used a recycled, washable PET fibre for the Piazza outdoor rug, which has a natural feel and is available in five colours.
The Libeco brand also favours 100% linen or wool and linen fabrics in its new creations (Etienne or Marrakech plaid). Note the elegant use of woven weaves for the Jasper collection (cushion covers). After incorporating bright colours in the previous lines, Libeco’s style is now based on neutral tones and two-tone effects in natural and vegetal materials, flower, bis, tobacco, clay and raw earth, and charcoal.
At Zimmer + Rohde, the fabrics in the Soul Spaces collection truly have soul: rough meets smooth, matt contrasts with shimmer, softness meets roughness and modernity meets tradition to create fabrics with unexpected, metallic effects and an artistic, wabi sabi feel.
