Sony outlines new interior trends for 2018

Sony has highlighted some upcoming home styling trends for 2018, with the help of interior stylists Selina Lake and Cate St. Hill.

To coincide with Sony’s recently launched pop-up space in Shoreditch featuring its Life Space UX range, new themes that the firm has revealed include Lagom, Painterly, Wabi-Sabi, Botanicals and more.

Lagom is a Swedish word that translates to ‘not to little, not too much’ and follows the hygge trend from Denmark and embraces ideas for a scandi style interior which is cosy, cool and relaxing.

Wabi-Sabi is an ancient Japanese philosophy turned décor trend that is about embracing your own authentic, and the imperfections of your space, while Painterly is the trend that celebrates colour.

Lastly, Botanicals brings the outside in with houseplants and as the trend continues into 2018, designers are thinking up new ways to give outside spaces even more Botanical style.

Other new trends set to make an impact in 2018 include rich earthy colours, slender furniture legs and jewellery-inspired lighting.

Sony’s Life Space UX design-led pop-up space is open from 11am to 7pm until January 18, 2018 at 188 Shoreditch High Street, E1 6HU.
