Home Offices

Home offices were, of course, a huge trend in 2020, & we expect to see it continue to grow as companies offer work from home as a permanent solution. As these become a more permanent fixture in our lives, they naturally will garner more attention to detail & a higher level of integration with the design language of the rest of the home.

Distant Shores

Most people don't have beach houses, but don't try & tell us you don't want one. That's what this trend is all about. Integrating the design cues from a warmer, more relaxed locale into your home to bring that laid back energy into your home on a daily basis. It serves as a great reminder that life is meant to be enjoyed.
