TREND WATCH: This Skandi influenced trend called “Urban Croft”, centers around modern furniture made from blond woods, focusing on refinement and simplicity of form. This pared-back look, with clear modern shapes in furniture, is complimented with subtle contemporary patterns like geometrics and tessellated shapes. A simple colour palette of neutrals and greys leads the way but some colour additions like soft pastels warms up this look. This is a design-led trend where ‘less is more’ and equals sophistication, but still in a soft and charming way.
