2015 The Year of the Artisan

I was recently asked about my thoughts on the next big thing in interiors with the new year upon us. Last year we saw the resurgence of the Butterfly Chair, a focus on 50 shades of grey in our homes, and innovative industrial lights.

2015 will see a focus on the handmade.

I predict we will turn away from the mass branded homewares and design pieces, and make a leap towards pieces that hold design integrity. Whether it be handmade ceramic homewares, hand stitched leather cushions, or natural timber furniture made locally.  Our interiors will become layered with individual pieces that support independent artisans.

Enhancing our interiors with skill, workmanship and artistry.  2015 is about embracing craftsmanship and the art of authenticity.
