2021 New season design styles

Updated: Feb 6, 2021

It has been nearly two years since we pounded the streets of Milan in April to see new & old designers alike release a plethora of shows, parties and exhibits showcasing " what's hot in design". If you're currently working on your home, Are you missing that IRL experience of getting tactile with products? For me nothing beats seeing the statement chair from across the street glistening on a plinth in the Italian sunlight, you can't replicate that feeling on zoom!

But in a COVID world, we are being pulled towards online sourcing, and I for one have an issue with solely sourcing online. Initially, you can get an idea of the furniture's basic elements, eg: materials, colours, function, but how can you see if it's genuine? you can't touch it, or feel its weight or check the craftmanship. So roll on to a time when IRL events are GO! we can't wait.

In the meantime, I've noticed a few emerging design styles so thought I would bring these to you, as I truly believe the coming months these will be reflected in the high street more and more. Ideally, it would be great to incorporate these into your home.BUT only if they genuinely sit with your personal style


No its not a board game, it's a style that emulates the sleek lines of Japanese furniture with the minimal appearance of Scandinavian style. Think simple, organic materials in light, neutral colour tones. A real mix of east meets west, Japandi rooms are a mix of minimal but remain warm by using a selection of tactile woods and ceramics. Light wood furniture compliments creamy whites and cool greys.


Mixing eras of design styles, Statement colour is the underlying factor, a palette of jewel tones, inspired by our rich heritage. With all the beauty of Georgian and Victorian decorative influence, as the starting point. Mixing stripes with florals all with an undertone of high volume colour.

Minimalism meets industrial

Clues in the name, if you imagine a paired back industrial vibe cleaner lines, materials in their rawest and most natural state. Metal, concrete, distressed wood, paired with butter-soft furniture, linen and luxe velvet. Especially in the bathroom, these vibes translate perfectly to polished concrete walls and raw brass fittings.

As always renovations can seem rather daunting and If you've read this far you're probably feeling overwhelmed by which style suits you and I don't blame you as a studio we create on average 24 room designs every year and we learn something new every day.

Which is why we are so proud to launch our new service "Help I'm stuck" consultancy.
