The New Year has brought a new host of trends that are inspiring interior designs and architectural projects.
Thinking ethically and sustainably continues to drive our designs for interiors and architecture. This year we’ll see an increased use of organic/recycled materials, as well as earthy tones and spaces that create a connection with the environment and a greater sense of wellbeing.

Not that we are biased, but we are seeing an increase in metal meshes being brought inside and being used to create edgier and more unique spaces. Mesh offers a great way to inject personality into a space, create texture and individuality without blocking light or airflow.
Key tip: metal mesh makes a stunning interior feature when designed into balustrades, staircases, splashbacks and ceilings.
3.Less is More
Steering away from the trend of ‘eclectic clutter’, this year’s interiors are influenced by minimalist style. This helps open-up a space and accents key design features.
Key tip: lighting is a key tool to brightening up a white, minimalist space. Check out the miniature architectural luminaires from Ecoled at www.ecoledlight.co.uk
Feature walls are a great way to add personality to a white, minimalist space. They can also bring culture and heritage into your interior.
Key tip: our Vitramesh range (mesh laminated in glass) makes for stunning feature walls, windows or partitions.
5.Modern Twist on the Vintage
This year we’ll vintage pieces edging their way back into our designs but reimagined in a modern context.
We’ll gain a sense of history and nostalgia but with the benefits of a modern performance and/or design flare. We’ve already seen this trend makes its way into the engineering word with the reinvention of café racers and scrambler motorbikes that we’d left in the 70s.
Key tip: our range of special finishes such as rust and aged copper offer the perfect way to introduce heritage into a space.
