The New Monochrome
As interior trends often stem from the catwalk shows, we were pleased to see monochrome elements all over London Fashion Week.
Many shows, including Topshop Unique (pictured above) updated the classic black and white palette with hits of electric yellow – something which we think will translate into our homes really well.
We’ve been inspired by this modern palette, a refreshing take on an all-time classic, and have put together a collection of products that channel this trend. We have picked a classic sofa as our star piece, the Cassina LC2 Two Seater Sofa in black leather, which is a design classic that will never date, and have accessorized with a mix of modern pieces in white and yellow.
Our collection features the Driade Maud Carpet, Artek A1110 Hand Grenade Pendant Lamp, Vitra Asterisk Wall Clock, Ferm Living Bird Leaves Cushion and the Hay DLM Side Table. This is the perfect color combination for the Spring – classy and timeless with a fresh edge. We love the look, and certain pieces will definitely be making their way into our homes this season!
If the monochrome trend isn’t for you, why not take a look at our blog post on the Pantone’s colour of the year, emerald? Full of emerald accessories for your home, this trend is for the colour-lover.
