Jungle Motifs, Uber Glam, Cushions, Cane and Cork, Animal Prints plus Metallics
At the beginning of the year, we followed one of the interior designers major trends for 2020 – Jungle motifs. From “wild beasts to lush green palm prints” to “a dash of glam” and “soothing natural cane and luxe velvet”.
In no time at all, this opulent, tropical look was spreading to sofas, plates and lampshades as well as our pots at PPP. The decorators stated that “Big beasts are on the prowl” calling the jungle look “rich, exotic, fanciful and fun”.
“Uber Glam” became a regular statement as the painterly patterns of the tropical jungle were matched with warm finishes such as shades of gold, copper and brass metals. One trendy interior decorating magazine said, “Velvet reigns supreme for 2020 together with deep-pile rugs and “glam sculptural lighting”.
Following these styles as well, museums started licensing their images to use as cushions, wall panels and even lamp shades. Also, it's cane furniture and decor indoors this year with mainly chairs and lampshades. Cork is also on the up with new “sophisticated looks”, as they say.
Animal Prints plus Metallics
Brass, Bronze and Silver Gilt plus “lashings of very shiny lacquer” together with inexpensive metallic wallpapers and stained wood and metal furniture have appeared online. These have been teamed with animal prints such as leopard and zebra with cushions in plump velvety fabrics. Also, the interior decorators state, “watch out for chic shell shapes, palms, fans and exotic hints of Ancient Egypt and Aztec Mexico”.
