Tassels and fringing

"A development on the maximalist movement that made waves in 2018, this trend says more is more when it comes to the trimmings. Once resigned to soft furnishings such as scatter cushions and throws, we’re now seeing lamps, wall hangings and even mirrors finished with tassels and fringing.

Pioneering the movement is Danish brand Madam Stoltz known for their iconic collection of fringed table lamps, and bestselling brand Bloomingville who have launched a whole collection celebrating tassels."

Warm terracotta shades

"Tiring of the cold, industrial look of concrete? Meet terracotta, concrete’s hot cousin. Translated from Italian terracotta literally means ‘baked earth’, and it’s terracotta’s warming qualities that homeowners will be welcoming into their spaces in 2019.

Designers like Serax are experimenting with terracotta in new and exciting ways, even creating lampshades cast in terracotta."

New Neutrals

"With Dulux tipping spiced honey as their colour of 2019, it’s time to say goodbye grey and bonjour to beige. Neutral colours are heating up! Departing from the cool monochromatic shades that dominated 2018, the new year will see a shift toward warm neutrals, reflecting a change in mood, with people favouring the comfort and cosiness that this new relaxed colour palette brings." 

The return of retro

"Inspired by vintage home accessories and antiques, we’re seeing retro style making a comeback. Characterised by coloured glass, softly waved shapes, floral fabrics and textured and layered glassware, we guarantee you’ll find yourself lusting after those nostalgic pieces from your grandma’s mantelpiece.

Dutch brand HK Living are the leading the retro revival with homewares inspired by the 60s and 70s."

Circular silhouettes

"For a long time, design has been synonymous with sharp, angular lines, thanks to the popularity of Scandinavian minimalism, but for 2019 lines will start to bend and curve to create a softer and more feminine silhouette. Starting with architecture, interior design and furniture, now even shelves, mirrors and vases are going circular, bringing with it a modern take on the retro trend." 

Sustainable furnishings

"From Blue Planet’s groundbreaking exposé of single-use plastic pollution, to the introduction of the latte levy, 2018 has been the year of sustainability. In 2019, we’ll see shoppers living by the ‘buy less, buy better’ mantra and spending more on quality products that have been produced sustainably.

It’s no secret that independents are light years ahead of the chains in promoting conscious consumerism. Sustainable Trouva boutiques Freyr And Fell in Hampshire, Yume in Copenhagen and Salt Water in Amsterdam all exist to encourage more thoughtful consumption."

Faux plants and dried flowers

"Are we faux real? Absolutely. Whilst the booming botanic trend shows no sign of abating, consumers are now reaching for faux plants and dried flowers to fill their homes.

The latest development in this seemingly evergreen trend, faux plants and flowers are back in vogue after historically being viewed as a major interior faux pas, all thanks to advances in materials and production methods.

First highlighted by Trouva ambassador Pandora Sykes, expect to see the popularity of fake plants and dried flowers flourish in 2019."
