home: trend [ sculptured form ]

As we head into Autumn new trends are alway appearing, including today’s pick – sculptured form.

Taking inspiration from sculpture and art, furniture & lighting are taking on forms that give them the appearance of something more than just a functional object. Sofas and chairs are given soft curved lines with lighting being something not out if place on a gallery plinth.

We have always bought furniture for not just it’s use, but also it’s form and now it seems brands are going that bit further to offer us something even more interesting and eye catching.

This season we are seeing a lot of ornaments and accessories adorning shelves and tables in magazines and online.

With influences from Africa, Middle East and vintage pieces the sculptures and busts we are seeing have a strong artifact feel about them, like you picked it up on your travels and are years old.

Heads and busts are everywhere with tribal influences and animals feature heavily too. Mix these ornaments with artwork, plants and vases, to create a curated display.
