Familiar, comforting fabrics like soft cotton and felt stop this clean look from alienating householders. The gentle pastel palette adds a calmness to this performance-driven story, preventing it from becoming too clinical or function orientated.

Tribal Gathering


This trend builds on a consumer desire to rediscover our basic human instincts. Taking inspiration from primitive tribal cultures all over the world, the importance of health and happiness is redefined as we reassess our current lifestyles.

Earthy textures and rustic surfaces appear hand-crafted and decorated with tribal markings. Green succulents, cacti and materials like bamboo and raffia introduce a natural contrast to graphic tribal patterns. A refreshing yet earthy palette with pastel accents captures a laid-back summer mood in the home.
