Inspirations 2017


Let us take you away from the uncomfortable zones of an unstable world, a place where you don’t feel safe. It is high time to take on board the new parameters of how to live ‘the good life’ at home. On the agenda: achieving physical calm and peace of mind. In response to our desire for rest and tranquillity, curves replace straight lines and shapes become more enveloping, becoming as protective as a snugly down jacket and as reassuring as a child’s favourite cuddly toy. Chairs that look just like funny cushions on legs are perfect for relaxing and ultra soft fabrics enhance the sensation of well-being. References to bubbles, balls, nests and clouds, not forgetting peas in a pod, have inspired the creative imagination of designers to create a new generation of connected-cocoon. Toned-down pastels and pale pink hues wash away tension in a new chic interior that highlights the refined décor. Both eco homes and passive houses dream of an Eden-like interior, but workspace architecture also endeavours to optimise serenity on a day-to-day basis and innovative new technologies serve the cause of well-being. Warm and convivial, the contemporary take on comfort is resolutely comforting: 100% feel good.
