This week Rodd visited the 2017 Clerkenwell Design week. A great occasion to get an overview of current industry trends. Here are three motifs we picked that inspired us:
Speckle We saw a great deal of variation of speckle finishes. Combinations of materials, such as marble and concrete, as well as recycled plastics, which were often used to add additional dimensions to simple geometric shapes across luxury furniture and vases (see Conpot, Elise Som). Speckles were also used as a pattern on various wooden furniture, from to dining tables to kitchen drawer chests (MannMade).
Playing with colours, and adding additional layers of texture on sofas and rugs, these embroidered patterns make a bold statement. Quite refreshing to see in a world of delicate furniture.
