The year is coming to an end and therefore we think it is time not only to look back at the trends of 2013, but also choose some new hot tendencies for 2014. We have tried to summarize all in such a comparative mood board. So here is what we think will define the year ahead:
MATERIAL TREND: LESS METAL, MORE GLASS
In 2013, copper and brass stole the show entirely. The trend will continue as the classic metallic never goes out of style. However, after reading all the new catalogues for 2014, it is very clear that the hot material for 2014 will be glass. In the new collections you can find stylish glass in many different colours and shapes. Compared to metal, glass is subtle and airy. We love it!
COLOR TREND: LESS BLACK AND WHITE, MORE PASTEL COLORS
Are you tired of black and white interiors? Be glad about the new 2014 colour trend – the pastels. Just as glass, the pastel colours feel gently and delicate. In the collections you can find the entire palette, the main colours however are turquoise and green. Compared to the black and white colours (which keep working as the base) pastels are fresh and bright. Well, at long last!
FORM TREND: LESS GEOMETRY, MORE ASYMMETRICAL SHAPES
Geometric, especially diamond shapes, were the must-have during 2013. The very symmetrical forms will be replaced by the less regular ones. Inspiration is often taken directly from nature. The imperfection can be beautiful as well!
GENERAL TREND: PERSONAL INTERIORS & PRODUCTS WITH A STORY
We think and hope, we will see more personality in interiors and homes in 2014. People will invest more in handmade well-crafted products and in good design. The personal things, such as vacation photos, favourite travel destinations, inherited objects and hobbies, will find their way back to the interior. Just let your home reflect your personality!
