Using and Escaping Our World


One trend that we have seen gaining popularity in recent times is the use of Japanese-inspired designs. This trend celebrates soft greys and muted pastels that can be accented by black and reds. Harmony sees interiors take inspiration from some Japanese traditions and gardens, with minimalist features and natural materials being key. If you’re looking to create a zen-like atmosphere in your home, this could be the trend for you!

This trend utilises plants to anchor to our natural world but does not shy away from everything urban. The use of wood, bamboo, and stone give a natural feeling to the room, whist the addition of plants help to remind us of our connection to nature. Utilising light coloured carpets or tiles adds to the serene feel of this trend, but provides the comfort you require in your space.


As a reaction to all the never-ending chaos that spins around us, this trend is best summed up by the want for a new order of fairness inspired by long term optimism. People are looking for a way to disconnect from the digital world and ground themselves in physical spaces.

The colour pallet is warm and dark punctuated by Rich Velvet Blue and Walnut Brown. There are plenty of nods to pattern, metallics and fine craftsmanship resulting in the use of plenty of rich materials including brass, marble and crystal. Carpets help to create a sense of permanence and grounding in a world that feels increasingly chaotic. This trend provides an air of class and sophistication, whilst still bringing the comfort of home.

Sustainable Carpets


This trend derives from society’s collective power. We as a community have the desire to collaborate for the benefit of all. Because of this, ethics play an influential part in decision making of shoppers, as well as the adoption of a carefree and flexible approach. Hence, style choices tend to celebrate diversity and sustainability.

Wool carpets are a key way to adopt a sustainable approach. Wool provides comfort, but importantly absorbs sound and volatile organic compounds, as well as controlling moisture in your home. The beauty of carpets is that they allow homeowners to express themselves. Bold colours or even earthen tones can be utilised to revolutionise your home but still keep costs relatively low and support a sustainable lifestyle. Revamping your home can be affordable as well as sustainable!


This trend emphasises the connection between sustainability and technology and is the most experimental of all the trends discussed. The revolution trend is a reaction to the concerns of the younger generation regarding mass urbanisation and climate change. This trend is characterised by “what if?” styles that are both experimental and unconventional. As a result, we have begun to spot somewhat unusual combinations introduced to interior design.

Some of the most popular materials used in this trend include wood, stone, and concrete to incorporate autumnal tones with spring pastel shades. Carpets are also making a comeback with this trend, as they provide a warm and comfortable feel to any room. Carpets also add some colour and interest to a room without going too crazy with your design choices. There is a significanant amount of innovation present in this trend, however it retains an undeniable sense of style.
