THE TREND

Native is a trend that evolves to be very modern & futuristic but also very natural and it’s this combination that defines its unique look. It is an amalgamation of craft, eco design and technology, with suprising interactions between synthetic and natural materials to create a neo-craft aesthetic. Unexpected colour combinations, minimalistic styling and nomadic design qualities influence it’s overall style.

This trend expresses a lot of optimism about the future…

Synthetic colours are combined with warm neutral tones which sparks fascinating colour clashes across product.

INTERIOR DESIGN

It is a unique and perfect mix between futuristic tech styling and the rusticity of traditional craft combined with contemporary global folk influences. It offers a new take on the eco sustainability trend.

KITCHEN & DINING

It is clean and simple in its aesthetic, handcrafted elements come through in the use of natural materials such as wood and bamboo as well as eco-friendly textiles. Geometric, native global patterns often mimic shapes found in natural landscapes.

STATIONERY INSPIRATION

Stationery mixes pattern influences from around the world. Wolves, bears and owls come into play for pattern and decorative product with illustrative native american spirit guides. Arrow shapes, teepee constructions and contemporary aztecs can be seen in both neutral and synthetic colours.

CHRISTMAS

Explore a contemporary christmas this year; feathers and dream catchers make great tree decorations and gift wrap ideas, incorporate this with arrows and rustic textile weaves. Clean lines and simple constructions create delicate geometrics for a modern style.

Why not pick out the contemporary brights in the palette and combine the geometric shapes with global folk aztec patterns for a fresh craft aesthetic.
