More is More
Floral autumn trend
We slowly become hardened and immune to the endless stream of input bombarding our senses daily.
Worse still: a growing number of people are becoming completely hooked, dismissing any stimuli-free circumstances as just plain boring. Wall-to-wall visual stimulation injects a feeling of excitement, inciting creative and energetic acceleration. For interiors this is vented as manifold expressive shapes, colours and patterns. Carefully considered selection is cast by the wayside in favour of casually throwing things together. Inspiration is sourced from numerous themes, with clear roots in the nineteen-eighties Memphis style. This Memphis style is particularly manifest in the cheerful, if hectic, graphic patterns and playful forms with their echo of the children's building block set. Products are arranged in front of a busy backdrop pattern, which results in stirring picture puzzles. The use of flowers and plants go hand in hand with the visual belligerence. Flowers of all hues are combined and loosely arranged in vases. The plants in this theme have striking forms or flowers.
The forms are playful and striking, at times geometric. Even when quiet shapes are mixed in, the resulting patterns are often so loud they dominate the form.
The choice of material is usually secondary to the choice of colour, the pattern and the form. With these three having the upper hand, the material can be more or less anything. Exuding a natural feel is therefore irrelevant for the material.
The patterns play the lead role in this trend and are extremely diverse. Inspiration is often rooted in the nineteen-eighties, with strong nod in the direction of the Memphis style patterns. For outdoor, jungle designs are even more important. The various patterns are richly combined and contrasted.
The colour palette is outlandish if versatile. The key element is that the colours alternate in hue: from pastel to vivid. Black and white make their appearance, but are not the key colours; red, blue and green play a more significant role.
In a constantly moving and changing society people are looking for more info, more stimulation and more impact. This results in a combination of materials and patterns that translates this need for more of everything. Vase and flowers have become one in this composition due to the translation of the vase in to a botanic container.
A hand tide bouquet with a clear identity and enormous impact. The vivid colors, the dramatic shapes…. It is a lot of everything but eye catching for sure. It might look like chaos but it is organised in its own peculiar way.
The graphical lines of the chicken net will contrast with the lush an colourful forms and colors of the flowers that are used in combination with the net. These clashes of form and color are typical for this year’s autumn trend.
