Pantone colour for 2017 is Greenery

Finally- a colour that’s not a variant on grey. Whether it’s Rose Quartz or Marsala, let’s be honest there were some pretty tame, hygge-inducing (or sleep-inducing) colours on trend the last few years. 2016 as years go, was a little bit of a mess, so it’s good to see Greenery, sweeping in and encouraging a fresh start. We need it.

Kitchen Aid heaven

We at Despoke often think that the mark of a truly grown up kitchen, someone who seriously has their life together, is the presence of a KitchenAid mixer.  There’s something about their 1950’s fluid design, their chrome bowl and their rather large price tag, that screams- “don’t worry! I know what I am doing! of course I can make my own family recipe Yorkshire puddings whilst being calmly in charge of two under 5 year olds.”  We have no KitchenAid mixer….and feel this says a lot. Ahem.

Well, stand aside those who laugh at our lack of culinary appliances, for the makers of the iconic Artisan Stand Mixer open their first Experience Store in the world to customers in the heart of London’s West End on Wigmore Street and we are on our way down. Stylishly arranged over two floors, the store is the perfect environment to inspire kitchen designers, budding bakers and serious chefs alike. As well as helping you imagine you are living in a World of Interiors spread.

kitchen aid

Not only does it display KitchenAid’s famous small domestic appliances including the new Artisan Mini Stand Mixer, but also the recently launched range of major domestic appliances such as the revolutionary Chef Touch Sous Vide system and Chef Sign Deep Induction Trays, which offer a perfectly balanced mix of iconic design and professional performance. We have zero idea of what these products do but we know we want them, for to say you possess a Sous Vide system, is to say you are in charge of your own destiny.

Perhaps most excitingly, the space has a fully functioning demonstration kitchen as well as a cookery school which entertains a rolling schedule of events, offering customers the opportunity to experience the professional results KitchenAid appliances can produce. So, you can try the covetable products in the safe haven of the shop, before buying one and fully growing up.

Cloth & Clay’s Nordic

So, people seem to be throwing this term Hygge around willy nilly at the moment. It’s one of those words that we reckon is a bit of a fancy fad, but we do love the images it conjures up. Hygge (pronounced “hue-gah”) is a Danish word with no literal English translation that roughly encompasses a cosy feeling or atmosphere and the pleasure in making ordinary, every day actions feel special and meaningful.

We Love Lane!

We always keep an eye on Lane as they constantly have brilliant presents and gifts- to ourselves and other people- especially around the festive season. They’ve just launched the Sand Cast Brick Tea Light Holder. A striking triangle, the corners rise inwards to hold a copper tea light cup and are designed to tessellate to create stylish patterns and arrangements. It is handmade by Bulmer Brick and Tile Company in Suffolk using ancient British brick making traditions.

100% Workplace

With more and more people working from home as well as companies investing in their workspace to allow their workforce to enjoy coming into the offie, we take a look at some of the best workplace exhibitors at this years 100% Design.

Haworth Openest feather

We really like the Openest6 range by Studio Urquiola for Haworth. The range comprises of a curved sofa, stool and table set. All with a distinctive flowing shape and a neutral palette.

Mark product

Mark Product have always been a firm favourite of ours with their stackable, brightly coloured stools and 3 legged chairs. The wide range of standard options coupled with the company’s willingness to work on bespoke solutions has made them a popular choice amongst architects and designers.

sagal group

We are big fans of the Sagal Groups gorgeous and simple furniture range- we would have this in our house let alone our office.  The cylindrical base that has been copied across the Pod range is a particular design favourite with us and marks the range out as a one that will become iconic.

triumph

The Dove and Renown range from Triumph is simple and timeless- with an obvious Scandi influence that we really like.

steelcase

A collaboration between Coalesse and Michael Young, the LessThanFive Chair supports a variety of users while weighing less than 5 pounds, thanks to its carbon fibre design.
