Quite a statement piece on their own, faceted shapes tend to work better when used as smaller, more decorative accessories. The Muuto Shade Bowls and Vase are a must have addition to any kitchen and look perfect out on display. Faceted textiles are also hugely popular and look particularly effective. These Muuto Tile Cushions are made from weaving premium quality wool and instantly modernise any statement chair or sofa with their quirky angles.

Softer Shades and Muted Tones

A much softer colour palette is a key trend for this year. An emergence of dusky pinks, warm greys, soft mauves and dusty blue hues are beginning to span a number of different areas of interior design, from walls to interiors and accessories.
