Although it’s not the exact shade, we have picked out some of our best-selling wallpapers below, that show influences of this stunning shade. The shade has been complemented with a variety of different animals, birds and intricate florals. The colour of the year for 2020 will deffinately return due to the easy application of this popular colour that it has stemmed from.

The softer shades of colour leave a cooling and relaxing lasting impression on its guest. The range of colours seen within these pastel inspired wallpapers offer a fresh and uplifting atmosphere – perfect for the upcoming summer months ahead.

Terracottas

Who doesn’t love a sunny terracotta shade? Reminiscent of the traditional terracotta vases and terracotta architectural elements seen throughout the Mediterranean locations, this popular shade of orange is being recognised more and more throughout wallpaper design this year. These designs below, show huge terracotta influence as well as many elements of Spanish inspiration.

Bold & Beautiful

There is nothing wrong with plastering your walls in a beautifully bold pattern, styled with either blooming florals, jazzy geometrics, cheeky monkeys or flamboyant species of birds. There are no limits when it comes to bold patterns. They will continue to crop up in wallpaper archives and releases for many decades to come. However, this year we have noticed a larger want for extravagent and brightly coloured patterns and what we have seen so far is absolutely stunning. We believe that now this trend has found its place, it will never go out of fashion.

Chinoiserie

A mixture between bold patterns, pastel shades and bright colours, Chinoiserie influenced wallpaper is extremely popular within the interior design world. In fact, it has got to be one of our most best-selling trends within our wallpaper collection. In particular, Coordonne’s Edo Mural Wallpaper, featured below in our very own version that we collaborated with Coordonne for. Featuring etheral birds, flamboyant trees and elegant details, Chinoiserie wallpaper is one of our favourite ways to uplift a home and create a magical and exotic space for you to enjoy.

An Introduction to Fat Interiors

Fat Interiors, the brand-new trend that is taking the interiors world by storm. From top-selling brands such as Normann Copenhagen and Borastapeter, we have discovered many fat and fantastic products that will welcome this new trend into your home.

The trend was established when a Japanese furniture company called Kamarq had an innovative idea. The idea was to rent cheap Ikea-like furniture by the month. If you wished to keep it at the end of the year, each installment would have paid for the whole product. The furniture pieces costed around $100 or around $8 per month.

However, when this collection launched, design enthusiasts started to recognize the collection looked extremely similar to the work of furniture designer, Ana Kras. To be more specific they recognized the similarity from a show that she put on in 2015 called Slon, meaning elephant in Czech. It’s not every day, us interior enthusiasts would combine the thought of a fat elephant with our much-loved homeware statements. Although in this instance, they are strongly relatable. Her collection was inspired by drum shells and an earthy color palette. The chubby, simple shapes of Ana Kras’ designs started off this whirl wind of a trend.

Similar to Memphis, the Italian architecture group, the Fat Interiors new and upcoming trend shows comparable features such as the bold colors and playful shapes.

Read on further to discover some of the interesting ‘Fat Interior’ products we offer here at beut.

Normann Copenhagen Acrobat Table Lamp – £265.00

Not so ‘chubby’ as the rest, Normann Copenahgen’s Acrobat Table Lamp would be a perfect desk/task light. Designed by Marc Venot, Acrobat is inspired by acrobats and the things that they can do.

Acrobat isn’t what you might expect on this post, however here at beut we believe it has just as much right. More modest, than the rest, the designer, Marc Venot, has taken the shape of a slimline desk light that everyone is familiar with and has slightly stretched and softened the edges to ‘fatten’ it up.

Apart from the ‘chubby’ aspect of the ‘fat interiors’ trend, we also believe that the trend isn’t just about the unusual shape, it is also about the difference it has from everything else. Futuristic, playful and friendly, Acrobat is held together by a magnet ad can adopt many magical positions just like an acrobat.

Woud Dot Pendant Medium – £169.00

The chunky and contrasting design of Woud’s Dot Pendant is available In three size options: small, medium and large and two colour options: white or black. The monochromatic scheme ensures sophistication alongside the slightly unique design that could be styled within a more eccentric décor.

Designed by Rikke Frost, the Dot Pendant has been intelligently designed with perforated metal and smooth opal glass so that light can show through either area and create different ambiences of lighting. The light diffuses from the bottom and projects to the top, creating a cozy aura in the room.

Some people might say that this pendant formalizes within the chubby trend due to the curved edges and inflated shape. On the other hand, people might say that the pendant doesn’t obtain the bright colours that this trend upholds. Therefore, we think it is a subtle choice for your interior space with the trend still in mind and visible.

The Dot Pendant would look stunning above a dining table or desk. We think that this light would look great in a residential or commercial space.

Bold and beautiful is just what ‘fat interiors’ is all about. Use Woud’s Pidestall inside or outside.

This is the perfect example of a ‘fat interior’ piece. Woud’s Stone Pendant-Small, lovingly designed by Phillip Bro is inspired by the softness of beach stones stacked on top of one another off a gently, eroded beach having spent their life underwater, sand and wind.

The pendant characterizes a bubble- like, squashed and stretched shape that is reminiscent of the ‘fat interior’ trend. Despite, the very unusual shape, Woud’s stone pendant is a minimalistic, Scandinavian design that would suit most interiors. Simple design and simple colours make it a great fit for either a commercial or residential space. Choose between two matte colour finishes.

We suggest hanging this pendant alone or pairing it with its larger sibling to create more depth within your space.

Designed by the tremendous designer, Kasch Kasch, the Chunky ‘Cap’ Table Lamp is a true masterpiece.  Featuring a chunky cylinder base and a thick steel tub, Normann Copenhagen’s Cap Table Lamp stumbles right into the ‘Chubby’ trend.

Inspired by a cartoon character called Calimero, a charming chicken with an eggshell on its head, gives the table lamp more of a reason to be a bedside table lamp in a child’s bedroom.

The contrasting shapes of the Hello Floor Lamp make this product we offer here at beut a controversy topic with are fellow ‘fat interiors’ enthusiasts. The slim neck and the ‘chubby’ head aren’t what we would normally associate with this trend. However, we think the shade on its own should at least deserve a space.

Lovingly designed by Jonas Wagell, this contemporary floor lamp is made of high-quality materials including: steel, beech and acrylic which acts as a diffuser giving an even distribution of soft light.

Thankful of it’s fresh and minimal aesthetic the lamp would fit into almost any interior style and we suggest situating the ‘Hello Floor Lamp’ in a dark corner of your living space or even home study. Chose between two crisp colours: grey or white.

From one of the most Iconic British designers’,Tom Dixon’s Bump Collection consists of jugs, short glasses, tall glasses, teapots and tea cups. The rare but wonderful collection is the perfect example of a ‘fat interiors’ piece. Tubular, spherical and chubby, Tom Dixon’s Bump collection is inspired by laboratory equipment.

7. Foliage

Bringing the outside in is a style that continues into a more realistic sense with this next trend. Having foliage in one’s home has always been an on-going fashion; however, the interiors community are taking this to a new level by filling interior spaces with bushels and succulents galore. Not only does this look add mysterious jungle vibes but bringing more live plants into your home brings fresh oxygen with it, which is never a bad thing.

8. Embellishments

A touch of sparkle and pizazz is needed in every home all year round if you ask us, it seems the interiors community agree, for this year at least. Unlike the explosion of glamour often seen in the A/W months leading up to Christmas and New Year, S/S embellishment is played down and very much a finishing touch. From a lighting centre piece to small homeware items, embellishment is available in many forms to suit your personal style.

Zuiver Woollen Striped Norway Rug – £760

9. Gold

Copper has stood strong for a long time, but it looks like its rein is over and gold is set to take back the crown this season. Much like how copper was used, gold is appearing in minimal and subtle ways, for instance wallpapers featuring this eloquent colour use it as outlining and accents. Furniture and homeware are slightly more generous with the use of gold, this is however with the intention the pieces are used sporadically as accent pieces.

First a trend in hair styling, now its blended into interiors. Ombré is a French term meaning “shaded” which has been adopted by the English language to mean “tones of colour that shade into each other, graduating from light to dark”.
