Modular and Multifunctional
One of the defining trends this season is multi-functionality, emphasising the use of objects in multiple ways. By leveraging modular elements, homeowners can tailor spaces to meet changing needs, blending innovation with practicality.
A Mediterranean Touch
This year, a prominent source of inspiration stems from the modern Mediterranean style, bringing new outdoor collections evoking a summery vacation mood. Glazed ceramics and terracotta add earthy textures, infusing outdoor spaces with rustic charm.
Integrating sculptures into your outdoor environment is an interesting way to elevate the aesthetics of your space. Beyond mere decorative elements, they transform gardens, patios, and terraces into artistic sanctuaries.
Echoing the trend from Milan in 2023, woven textures are gaining prominence. Luxurious cord designs offer a refined alternative to traditional wicker, harmoniously complementing the natural surroundings.
