Milan 2014 – Trends

I had the great pleasure of watching @Yellowtrace – Dana Tomic Hughes’ talk and show us her take on the Milan Design Week with best in the world of interiors. This year there was an exceptional fusion of art and design coming together in a rethought of how homes will be looking and the latest trends coming through in the next few years. Some of the trends that we will see coming through are:-

1. Sculptured Carrera Marble

3. Island Kitchens and Baths

Raw Edges collaborates with Caesar stone on islands known for its manufacturing of quartz worktopsthat can be applied to a number of domestic and commercial applications. Wanting to push the boundaries of their product, they employed London-based studio raw edges to reconsider the ‘surface’ in the context of the home. The result is ‘islands’ a series of modular pieces that utilizes Caesar stone instead to create three-dimensional structures — a display of cabinetry, appliances or separate containers.
