Time to take a look at the trends and vibes from the Danish design exhibition, Formland, that brings together the latest from the evolving design scene. For the first time MoMapaid the fair a visit and praised Danish design, exciting huh? So sit tight a be ready to experience the best from designers and specifiers from the lifestyle show.

The Colours

Ro Collection

Earthy hues will play a key role this winter and next year too.

This year we’ve seen the bursting at seams with organic shapes in the form of ceramic masterpieces and accessories. Add muted hues and softer silhouettes to give your living space a sense of depth and once again bringing the outdoors inside.


Add some sophistication to your home with a key piece in green to create an eye-catching feature. Dark green adds depth when used as accent pieces, especially among leather, natural linens and brass.


Another way to add sparkle and style to your home is with inspired jewel tone accessories. Go for beautiful velvet to bring a soft romantic element into your room.

If you’re looking for feminine yet defined touch here’s a great example the new brand, A SIMPLE MESS by Louise Dorph with a collection that seems so versatile and can fit flare to any room.

The Texture

Cork is already making a comeback and I just love how this material instantly adds warmth and texture to your home. Add more rough materials as steel, metal and concrete for a great collision of style which really catches the eye.

Broste Copenhagen

Go for the unexpected material mix like wood with high gloss lacquer or marble with metal.

Adding layers to your bed with linen, felt or velvet. If you’re going for a less fussy look keep it to a single shade and let the different textures do the work.

Keep an eye on rattan baskets, knitted throws and leather. Use the new “it” fabric velvet to make contrast and more interest. Velvet has this magical charm and it’s plush and soft feel add richness and warmth to your home this winter.

The Style

Make a statement by creating your tablescape in matching colour palette. Having exciting objects and colours to enjoy your meals with adds another level of satisfaction to any gathering.

This gorgeousness is created by the one and only Anette Eckmann, Studio Eckmann – a trend zone that whole-hearted celebrates the love for plants, flowers, and the authenticity between people. The colour palette ranges from golden desert sands to deep red and green.

The elements of craftsmanship are explored in the global trend and reinforced through Moroccan style with mixed texture, adding homage to opulence.

The Scandinavian retreat is clean with a minimal aesthetic, the interior accessories are sparsely placed and form and function bring together a subtle and humble style.




Must-haves from Formland

As always it was an amazing joy to join the #sweetinstawalk lead by Laura Tøstrup founder of the blog The Sweet Spot– a few hours spent wandering the floor at the design show Instagramming great brands and exciting design.

Here’s a snap of the all the great designs and stories that caught our eyes.

Skagerak Denmark won this year designbaseAward and is now off the to the international gia Award Show.

The 70s are still having a huge moment with no sign of waning in 2016 so urban jungle vibes will still be going strong. Embrace anything plant and nature inspired as they are one of the easiest ways to create a crisp and pure look at home.

Functional decorative objects, soon there’ll be no room for useless items.

Trend zones created by FLY + HELSTED.

Sparkling is the new black, anything shiny will instantly add glamour and contrast to your home. Here’ the gorgeously simple but stunning Christmas setup from Stelton.

Beautiful design with defined lines from WOUD.

Handcrafted elements are in-demand and it’s the perfectly imperfect that will add character to your space. Especially wood surfaces bring a sense of finish to space.

Mantra of AW16 seems to be; Bring your home closer to nature in an artistic and thoughtful way”.
