New Designs from Paris and London Design Events

I have selected some of the new products that impressed me. As interior designer I would say that if you choose just one of them it will help you make a room unique :) 

British craftsmanship at this year’s London Design Festival - DOUGLAS FIR CABINET BY ROSE UNIACKE

Sculptural wooden planters are used for legs of the desk below designed by Heatherwick Studio. It is part of the Design Museum's Connected: Made Together, Apart project at London Design Festival:


One of my favourites - Bio-mbo by Cassina's Art Director Patricia Urquiola is a versatile haven for well-being: the headboard is equipped with Soundfil© for noise absorption and the bedframe with theBreathe© fabric to capture and disaggregate polluting particles, guaranteeing a good night's sleep.

ph. De Pasquale + Maffini

And from the digital edition of Maison et Objet September 2020 - they obviously do not care about sharing much and it is not that easy to share from their MOM site, so my choice is very limited:

SUFI & ANEMONE PENDANTS -  the handmad CARTOCCI collection, comprised of unique paper clay sculptures

Radiuos Round Coffee Table by  KENKOON

RAIZ AND CASCAS - New design by Patricia Urquiola

 Cascas tea trolley

I like the soft elegant lines, the beautiful combination of FSC certified Amazonian wood and a top made of Marwoolus - marble waste and wool yarns, made by Marco Guazzini - in the Cascas tea trolley. Patricia Urquiola designed the two collections for the debut of ETEL International, a Brazilian furniture company’s first opening towards non-Brazilian designers:

The two collections were planned to be a part of an exhibition Women and Design that had to open during this years's postponed Milan Design Week. See some more new designs in my earlier posts

What we missed with postponing Salone2020 - Part 2

With my earlier post What we missed with postponing Salone del Mobile.Milano 2020 - Part 1 we saw some of the new products that were planned to be showcased during salone 2020. Let's have a look at some more. I notice a trend for soft elegant curves in many of the new furniture pices that we see this year:

Trends: Warmth with natural stones

According to Elle Decor, there is a general trend (which I completely agree with) towards warmer, earth tones, including the bathroom. And there we notice a desire to replace white marble in favor of stones with warmer hues like travertine and limestone. I can confirm that from what my latest clients chose for their two bathrooms - travertine walls and travertine-like floor tiles:
The master bathroom in my latest project

And the second one which is still not completed with lighting:


I suppose that now, when we are going to spend more time at home, this trend towards warmer hues will become popular.

Trend Alert: Tables as Focal Point

I like this trend. It started a couple years ago. Tables with one central base often with unusual sculptural form are getting more and more popular. This is true not only for dining tables, like this beautiful example below:
Barry table - round table
The Barry table by Miniforms
but also for side tables, where it is much easier to have a more interesting solution:
