This last year has seen a massive resergence in 70s inspired rattan furniture. A boho feel, with a relaxed vibe was seen everywhere, and is still very much a popular choice.

This year we are seeing a lot more woven furniture incorporating Japanese influences. The pale wood tones are being mixed with black for a more striking look. This can be seen on cabinets and screens, again with Japanese influences.

The fine weave we are seeing creates a lovely pattern and texture on table tops and door fronts, perfect for a statement piece. Don’t go overboard with this, as the more stripped back the better. Let the furniture do the talking, so just invest in one or two items to tie into your space.

Gone are the days when sofa beds looked like sofa beds, the extra chair in the corner of a room or in the office that just didn’t sit right with everything else!

With demand for adapatable furniture that looks good, and the fact that we want ease when pulling out a sofa bed for unexpected guests, rather than a hassle, brands have starting offering us much better products.

Wayfair / West Elm

Head to Ikea for an array of good looking day bed / sofa beds that work just as well in an office space / spare room as they do in a living room. With more and more fabric choices and colours there is no reason your main sofa can’t be a bed too.

Day beds are also increasing in popularity making for a cosy sofa to curl up on and read a book and when needed, with one simple move you have a bed.

The sofa bed is here to stay!

home: trend [ Navajo ]

Across the high street homeware stores, and online, there’s a huge amount of homewares inspired by Native American tribal patterns.

The colours are strong but not too bright and these homewares sit well in a predominantly neutral tone interior. Cream or white walls and floors, lots of natural wood and then texture and pattern from all the gorgeous rugs, throws and wall hangings. It’s a truly ‘traveller’ and earthy trend that creates warm, timeless style and feel to a room, and can be added to with trinkets and paraphernalia from travels.
