Read on to view a collection of new products from beloved retailers and brands, organized by trend. Let the new designs of 2017 breathe some life into your home. Happy New Year!

Scandinavian Influence

Scandinavian style is hardly a new concept. But it’s definitely interesting how Scandinavian-inspired pieces are making their way into the offerings of mainstream retailers. Clean lines and sleek silhouettes reign this season, with a hint of earthy flair. This Taper 5-Piece Place Setting from CB2 features stoneware in dipped in warm grey glaze:

When it comes to the very latest in Scandinavian design trends, look to the experts. Like Danish design house ferm LIVING, whose Scented Candles showcase the glazed look in a range of rich hues. Glazed pieces are definitely in the spotlight this season:

A Burst of Beige

Move over, grey. Beige has arrived! While we must admit that grey will never go out of style, it’s interesting how designers are starting to leave room for a beige comeback. This Lotus Natural Corner Chair from CB2 can be combined with the armless chair and the ottoman for the perfect sectional seating solution. And if you’re already missing cooler neutrals, don’t fret. You can order the piece in grey!

A very new addition to ferm LIVING’s catalogue of treasures (so new it won’t be in stock until June), this Herman Magazine Stand is made from canvas and features a powder coated metal base. Brass details and leather string are eye-catching accents:

A Dash of Cork

Cork is the new “it” material, and it’s only getting more popular. Cork floors have been going strong for years, but think about the possibilities that come with cork walls! Start small if you feel so inclined. Crate & Barrel’s Corked Pitcher features a durable glass container topped with a cork round:

This Stripe Cork Placemat Set from Love Milo is a great way to introduce cork into the dining room. Crafted from recycled wine corks and embellished with eco-friendly ink, these water-resistant placemats are also responsibly made!
