The desire for trustworthy design

Design & Consumer trend 2019

Through a time where political instability is a reality and causes uncertainty in our society, trust has never been a more relevant topic than it is now. Both the trust we show towards each other as individuals, but also the trust we as people have towards brands and the society in general. Interior design will in 2019 reflect trust and embrace honest design, which we as humans can relate to. We want designs to tell us a unique story of why, how, where and by whom it is created. 

This season, we will experience the trend of trustworthy design through different trend directions. In interior design 2019, we strive to decorate our home with products that make us feel safe, calm down and feel trust. Trustworthy design should contribute to a lifestyle, where we want to achieve sympathy, honesty, harmony and a free spirit with room for playful design.

Earthly shades of clay and terracotta in orange, red and brown shades, in a combination with bright and simple elements, will create a unique and breathtaking space. 

Africa is a beautiful and exotic continent, with a rich cultural heritage and is characterized by unique interior design. Modern decor in African inspired style is not about crowding the home with masks, baskets, animal prints and red- and brown shades everywhere. It is about finding a few elements that add a touch of an African mood to an otherwise simple decor. It is about finding elements that create harmony, personality and warmth.

Japandi - Japanese symbolism

Japandi is a fusion between Scandinavian design and Japanese design. For a real Japandi feeling, different special Japanese design techniques are used and Japanese national symbols are combined with Scandinavian design.

The Japandi trend is highly influenced by Zen, which embraces the simple and clean style of interior design. The crane is one of the oldest described paper-folding figures and epitomises Japanese traditional origami.
