The Interior Edit: Trends for 2018 by Isabelle Weiss, Founder of Next:Space
LIKE FASHION, INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS ARE OFTEN DEFINED BY COLORS, TEXTURES AND SHAPES THAT CAPTURE OUR CURRENT MOOD. EVERY SPRING AND AUTUMN, DESIGN DEVOTEES FLOCK TO INTERNATIONAL FAIRS IN NYC, PARIS AND MILAN TO DISCOVER THE LATEST DESIGN DICTUMS - RED IS THE COLOR! MALACHITE IS THE NEW MARBLE!
But you don’t need to book a flight to enjoy cutting-edge design.
More than ever, local designers are a trendsetting force to be reckoned with – presenting work that resonates with international trends while maintaining distinct design perspectives that can only come from Detroit.
The Interior Edit is a summary of our favorite international trends and local design finds.
Here is to a stylish 2018.
BACK TO NATURE:
It seems what we need most from our spaces right now is warmth. Earth-tones, organic forms and natural textures add comfort and serenity to your space. Ceramic vessels and solid walnut and maple furniture in sleek modern forms were especially popular at High Point this year. Build the haven you crave with…
NEW AGE FOLK:
Repurposing commercial materials is another trend we love. But think beyond the usual steel
and reclaimed wood and look to concrete, as seen all over Maison et Objet in Paris, and plastics
for a decidedly new age approach...
Punctuating your space with bold accent colors is nothing new but we can’t help loving the new
color of choice. Red! From Salon del Mobile in Milan to New York’s ICFF, red is everywhere. Red
was also a favorite of mid-20th century designers and as a nod to our original local design icons,
we’ve added a stunning, early-production Saarinen Womb chair to our list of local finds...
Geometry makes a fabulous backdrop for fun and sophisticated living. We especially love the
trend towards geometric wall coverings, a favorite of the Pantoneview Home and Interior 2018
forecast. And the Detroit Wallpaper Co. is happy to oblige with a serious mix of patterns and
color palettes to fit any style. But why not take the trend even further? Go for geometric
maximalism with a shapely mirror too...
Who doesn’t love a bit of shimmer and shine? Another 2018 forecast from Pantone is iridescent
everything. From tiles to textiles and everything in between, we say add a bit of magic to your
space with these iridescent accents...
