Sustainability is becoming a priority within the interior design sphere and for good reason. Many companies are turning their attention to creating new, innovative materials that are both kind to the environment and equally elegant. One of the best is Smile Plastics, run by designers Adam Fairweather and Rosalie McMillan. They turn waste into unique, fully-recycled and recyclable materials that are multipurpose and can work all over the home. Their product is waterproof, making it ideal for use as a kitchen splash back, turned into a one-of-a-kind coffee table or as a bathroom vanity.
Outdoors as indoors
For this trend, think natural woods, house plants, succulents and the very best organic materials for an amazing interior space inspired by all that nature has to offer. Were also seeing the inclusion of rattan furniture in living rooms and dining spaces – a great way to bring the outdoors in while also adding a touch of texture.
Fringing and Tassels

A trend that demands a more-is-more attitude, fringe and tassels are the perfect way to bring texture to a space. Traditionally reserved for soft furnishings, truly embrace this trend by going beyond cushions and throws. “Were now seeing lighting, wall hangings, storage solutions and even mirrors finished with tassels, fringing and pom poms” says Trouvas creative director, Lucy Ward. Combine two trends in one by teaming your fringe with one of this years must-have colours: terracotta.
