Over the past few years, we have seen consumers reinvent their living spaces. From switching up interior design style to shifting away from open concept, and moving toward separated spaces. With this in mind, our goal was to design transitional pieces that can last for years in both durability and style, offering products that consumers can purchase with confidence. This idea was particularly important while designing our new kitchen line. We started with sustainable and durable materials like mango and acacia woods, mixing them with classic black and white colorations using solid marble stone or resin. By layering in organic shapes and environmentally friendly materials such as jute, we ended with combinations of clean lines and earthy shapes. We are excited to offer a selection of neutral kitchen items that are not only long lasting and functional, but also beautiful and unique additions to any entertaining assortment.
Noteworthy: “Time spent at home over the past year forced consumers to re-evaluate their spaces and decor, leading them to opt for objects with meaning, products that evoke an emotional response and handmade, crafted items.”

A great deal of research goes into every collection we launch, and a main resource for us is WGSN – one of the most well-known trend forecasting organizations is WGSN. According to their research the direction of textiles in 2022 will focus on well-made basics and patterns full of woven handmade details. This time around we dialed in on the thought of going back to basics. We focused on neutral colors and high-quality, well-made textile pieces that are unique and affordable.
Consumers are more aware now than ever of the health benefits of being outside and immersed in nature. Studies have shown that being outside can help reduce stress and increase levels of productivity. The minute we found this out we couldn’t stop thinking about our outdoor textiles, and how we wanted to help consumers create an outdoor oasis where they can relieve stress and find comfort outside. Exclusive designs that are both sustainable and durable enough to withstand the outdoor elements make a purchase anyone can feel good about.

Indoor plants have been trending for a few years, and it’s not going away anytime soon. Research shows the popularity of indoor plants are growing because they help promote a clean lifestyle. The surprising research found was that of terracotta. Earthy, warm terracotta tones are trending and forecasted to explode across all areas of home décor. Consumers gravitate towards this pigmentation because it gives a sense of warmth and comfort. We focused on developing more natural terracotta planters, vases, and pots. In addition, we’ve introduced textiles that feature a beautiful terracotta color. An expansion of terracotta colors into textiles is expected to come to the retail space soon!
