“2022 finds us searching for a simpler way of life, one that emulates a better balance between work and play. We find ourselves exploring the outdoors or emulating nature inside our home. We look at how our lifestyle choices are bringing positive change to the world through design as we look to a more sustainable and practical future.”
Nature’s Way: Nature and craft come together with clean lines and refined finishes. Bring nature indoors celebrating sustainable materials that are both simple and subtle.
- Browns/neutrals: cork, marble, wood, leather, natural fiber, seagrass, stone, ceramic, weaves
Staycation: A highly textured space sits delicately upon a sculptural, organic interior, creating an instantly familiar space with references to simpler times. Functionality and comfort; relaxing and practical; batik and shibori fabrics
Emerging colors: Nightshade, almond milk, cocoa, sage leaf, moss, marmalade, dandelion
