And not to worry—some of 2015’s most beloved trends are here to stay. Also, Maison & Objet launches new trends and products and there are a few that we can already share. Raw materials are a must!
“I think [designers] are always pushing to see something we have not yet seen before, or playing with materials and finishes in a way that we have not yet explored. Right now I’m excited about using traditional techniques and artistry in a modern context.” —Don Stewart, designer. Hand-painted-tiles have gained a privileged place in architecture throughout the centuries. This cabinet is a must-have for 2016.
Among the many inspired changes in home interiors that come next year, some are very distinctive. Raw materials are a must. But innovations go far beyond: in the richness of the accessories, in the functionality and minimalism of space arrangement and none the less in the nobility and glamour of the materials used – just a few hints – copper, brass and marble. A marble table with golden details couldn’t be more elegant!
“Brazilian Modern is a trend I am most looking forward to in 2016, particularly the beautiful sculptural forms and use of raw materials and exotic woods. The unique pieces complement both traditional and contemporary interiors.”—Sara Story, designer. This table made from wood with an irregular surface and faceted form is totally manually produced. And it’s a great example of what you can expect for interior design trends.
2016 trends dictate that accessories and objects will be marked and singled out by shades of green oil, navy, and deep blue – they convey calm and coolness into the premises.
“We live in an anything-goes world where it’s okay to mix high with low, mid-century with minimalist modern, colors, patterns, and everything in between. The best trend I’m seeing is people forgetting about the ‘rules’ and loving what they love unapologetically. “ —Jonathan Adler, potter, designer, and author. This piece of furniture merges a traditional knitting technique, with the best of luxury furniture design. Inspired by the artisan method popular in Europe during the 19th century, this nightstand is rich in texture and has a timeless classic design influence. It is made of wood, finished with a golden leaf with a translucent beige and a high gloss varnish. The stand is finished with a carved metal structure.
In this line of thought, a strong trend for 2016 is the visibility of materials such as brass, copper, wood and marble compounds in the design projects. The multiple usages of the glamorous copper and brass, their plasticity, and friendly characteristic make a rich field for art exploitation. Trends for 2016 are all about natural materials.
The decor projects for this year are filled with natural materials – for example as coatings cork and marble are coming back strongly, wood, stone, and raw concrete are also here with their timeless presence.
“A return to a more visible canvas of tailored and tonal fabrics and texture—think Andrée Putman and Ann Demeulemeester—in response to the more bright pattern and colors of the bohemian spirit of the last few years. In 2016, we see ourselves pursuing this classic direction in our clients’ homes using tailored fabrics in textural neutral tones. The color camel seems to be driving this vision.” —Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe, interior designers. This cabinet reflects all of that, reason why it is one of my personal 2016 interior design trends. It features a unique finish and remarkable design elements, inspired in the classic Manueline style. The cabinet surface has a copper leaf finish, with a black lacquer gradient applied on the exterior.
