The rapid onset of spring takes many of us to a place where we’re thinking about renewal, rebirth and an all-round fresh start. What better mindset is there when it comes to taking a new look at your home? Spring is a popular time for us, with many of our favourite customers returning to get our opinions on what the next steps could be in their own interior design journeys.
We love what we do, and being at the heart of the world of interior design gives us a fantastic insight into future trends and fashions to keep your home on the cutting edge of Italian design philosophy. We look to big events like April’s Salone del Mobile 2015 to keep our finger firmly on the pulse.
The latest Italian furniture fashion
Held annually in Milan, this fantastic event showcases the best design innovations for the modern home, with over 2,000 exhibitors strutting their stuff. With UNESCO proclaiming 2015 the International Year of Light, designers have been inspired to explore the essence of modern lighting for the home. We’re anticipating great things, whether similar to the understated, curved elegance of the Astra Arc floor lamp from Cattelan Italia, or bold, expressive statements like Foscarini’s Big Bang suspended light.
Special attention is also being devoted to design in the workplace this year. The Workplace3.0 exhibition is bringing together top contemporary furniture innovators to consider what the professional spaces of the future will look like. We’re looking forward to seeing how much of this filters down into design for modern home offices and studies.
What’s in this spring for your home?
A wealth of inspiration directly from top furniture designers is great, but it doesn’t mean we can’t also think outside the box for ideas. Last September’s Fashion Weeks gave us a hint about what to expect from the world of clothing, but there’s no reason we can’t adapt these principles to create gorgeous interior design.
Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2015 collection was all about a fusion of classic and modern styles, with loose geometric designs at the heart of the concept. This lends itself well to pieces like the Astro modern wrought iron bed from Ciacci, with the striking angular metalwork at either end breathing new life into a classic piece of Italian furniture.
The colour of this spring seems to be vibrant ochre yellow. Designers like Tory Burch are making great use of this season’s hottest shade to produce beautiful garments which anticipate a bright, lively season. With all of our contemporary Italian furniture made to order in a range of rich colours, you can dress your home up with the same sense of vitality. Picture something like the elegant Tonon Wave swivel chair brightening up your living room this spring.
The interplay between black and white is a timeless look, and it got its deserved share of catwalk space across the globe this year, with designers and fashionistas alike loving the idea of a strong black design on a pure white background. You can bring this strong look into your home with a well-chosen kitchen design, whether you prefer a more contemporary or classic feel. It’s a versatile motif that always works hard to bring style and class to this most beloved room. Rounding things off with a striking piece like the Kreaty dining table from Ciacci could be the final touch you’re looking for.
Whatever may be inspiring you to take a fresh look at your home this spring, you can be confident that Belvisi are here to give you world-class advice based on our passion for the latest great interior design ideas.
We’re also helping you tie it all together by offering two free matching chairs with every table and four chair combination sold, so you can invite even more guests to enjoy your new space.
