With interior trends constantly evolving alongside advances in technology and design it’s no surprise these vintage finishes are back better than ever!
It seems it’s not just runways trends that tend to come full circle, with vintage materials and finishes resurfacing in modern-day homes in a chic and innovative fashion. Materials and finishes that had lost their appeal along the way are being updated, reimagined and used in contemporary interior design.
Artificial grass is making a comeback in homes due a lack of outdoor space and the rise in apartment living. Balconies or small outdoor courtyards can be easily transformed with artificial grass to create a garden-like area, providing that fresh outdoor feeling without the maintenance or cost.
Laminate finishes are becoming increasingly popular due to improved design technology. Its versatility as a material is endless – used not just on benchtops but laundries, cupboard doors and more – it’s a modern material for the whole home.
Laminex has multiple finishes available in hundreds of design-led colours and patterns, allowing you to achieve an affordable bespoke finish in your home such as a stone-effect benchtop or solid wood-style cabinetry.
Along with Scandinavian style, plywood and cork are becoming increasingly popular in interiors; both affordable and adaptable options that can act as a neutral canvas or a standout feature. Incorporated into homes both decoratively and structurally, cork is also a fantastic flooring option due to its durability, sound-proofing and insulating properties.
Brass and gold accents seem to be popping up in every room in the home whether in the form of door hardware, kitchen and bathroom tapware, light fittings or décor items. When introduced into a contemporary interior this vintage metallic finish adds a touch of luxury with a warming sense of nostalgia.
