From living walls to concrete tables, natural materials are a trend that continues to grow in popularity. Interior designers and furniture makers alike have been getting creative with ways to incorporate these trends into your home. Visit our Natural Elements Pinterest board for more inspiration in addition to our top tips below:
A living wall is a fantastic way to brighten up your home, especially if you are limited on space, if you can’t grow out, grow up! Plants have been proven to support your health by improving air quality, capturing pollutants and improving your mental health; they also look great! We love this handy guide from Ideal Home on how to create your own living wall at home.
Marble Top Tables:
The use of marble interiors has evolved from avant-garde pillars to stylish kitchen counter tops and now to sophisticated coffee tables. This classic material has worn many faces over the years and landed on the current trend, marble top side tables with metal (copper or gold) supporting legs. From John Lewis to Baker, you’re bound to find a variation that is ideal for your new living room. We love this coffee table from Atkin & Thyme that even has a matching side table to complete your look, pairing perfectly with our Maple for a luxurious refined style.
At Collins & Hayes we only use the most luxurious natural fibre fabrics, expertly chosen by our in-house fabric designers from specialist mills across Europe. To maintain the high quality of your sofa, we suggest using throws and scatters in natural fibre fabrics too, so you aren’t compromising on comfort at any stage. This beautiful Miramar Wool Blanket from Urbanara is 100% lambs wool and comes in a range of colours to compliment your Collins & Hayes sofa.
Redesigning your whole living area from scratch can feel like a stressful task, but don’t worry as we’ve done the research for you! One of the most popular and stylish trends right now is concrete. This versatile material gives you plenty of room to personalise your home, working great with wooden furniture and a plush, comfortable sofa to offset the stark surroundings such as our deep-seated Radley sofa upholstered in Acre Spice leather. There is no end of stylish inspiration on our Pinterest board to achieve the back-to-basics meets industrial look.
Whichever way you choose to incorporate natural elements into your home, you don’t have to re-lay your whole living room floor with concrete. A few well placed, and well styled, accents can update your look.
