A Touch of Luxury - Onyx

Onyx is one of my favourite materials for interior design projects - it is not only beautiful, it has softness and it is translusant, and that creates a feeling of a 3D effect. Enjoy some of my latest findings:

 But even with this beautiful material it is possible to overdo things. I have seen a lot of such examples. Just make sure that when using onyx you leave it the only accent - it deserves to be the central piece in any interior project.


"Excuse my french!" - a Glimpse to Maison et Objet 2019

With les than 10 days to the beginning of the January addition of Maison et Objet 2019 we are curious to have a look at what will be on show, especially with this unusual theme: "Excuse my french!"
I have alsready chosen some of my favourites:
JULES by Charlotte JUILLARD for Duvivier Canapés, Patrick Williamson Photography
- one good example of the elegant French style.
VG - VGNEWTREND - Flower Power 
- Italian elegance with Murano glass and craftsmanship.
Linea SideBySideBed by Stig Leander 
- elegant and very useful design.

How do you like them? More will follow soon :)


Any Trends You Are Tired of?

Is there anything in today's interior design that you think is obsolete, outworn and ready to go away?
I will agree with Marie Claire Maison that we have had enough of the glamour of Art Deco, especially its false glitter. But still, we will continue to use some of its feel-good elements like the rich textiles - especially in winter we need the coziness of velvet and plush.
I can see its way of transformation into something modern, elegant and at the same time cozy - like this beautiful sofa that Sebastian Herkner has designed and that we are going to see at the coming this January IMM Cologne:

But I doubt their expectation that the so popular Scandinavian style will lose its influence will prove to be true. May be for a part of us who are really fed up with its a little boring uniformity, but, still, we can take a lot from thier love for natural wood and craftsmanship. From the photo above I would take away only the dried flowers, but would happily add some more colour :) - what do you think?


Interior Design Trends for 2019 - Part 1: Materials

It is always interesting to know what is coming - in life in general, but also in our professional life, too. Interior design is an inspiring profession - we create the spaces we live, work and entertain in and we do our best to make them in such a way that everything there is much easier, more beautiful and fun to use. And that is a good reason to look for inspiration in the coming new trends and be informed for the best possibilities we can offer to our clients.
So, I expect that part of the trends that will be popular in the coming 2019 are based on classic, well-known materials and ideas and many other - on the new materials and ideas that we have discovered this year.

Brass is one of the materials that we rediscovered in the past few years and especially its new applications and, like copper earlier, we are going to use it more extensively in our interior design projects. 

Porcelain stoneware can now look like real onyx! And like other natural stones, too. My favourite is ULTRA ONICI:

"The extremely reduced 6mm thickness, together with the advanced Ultra technology, allows an appropriately powerful band of light to travel through the Onice Ultra slabs and backlight the material."!!!‎ source: archiproducts.com
 From the earlier discoveries in the field of interior design materials, I expect that we are going to continue to use extensively the terrazzo and discover more ways to do that.
And another one, very suitable especially for the cold winter days, is plush mohair velvet - it is one of the new materials that Tom Dixon studio  introduced in their production line this year along with high-textured materials like hand tufted wool:
