As the world's design capital, Milan Design Week 2024 was a hub of inspiration and innovation. Our team, including Creative Director Catharina Idema and Textile Product Manager Esterel Roetgering, immersed themselves in the vibrant world of textile trends, uncovering the latest developments that are poised to transform the industry. Let's dive into these trends and discover how they shape the future of interior aesthetics.

Indoor Melts with Outdoor

This trend beautifully bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor spaces. Imagine the seamless transition—materials, textures, and colors flowing effortlessly from your interior sanctuary to your outdoor haven. Natural hues dominate, with soft beiges, greys, and greens taking center stage. Brands like Poliform and Dedar showcased exquisite colors, textures and designs that blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. The result? A harmonious blend of comfort and nature.

Pristine Pureness

In a world that often feels chaotic, the Pure Simplicity trend offers solace. It celebrates simplicity, purity, and stillness. Picture pristine whites with subtle variations in texture—a canvas of calm. But there's more: these whites come with a luxurious twist, incorporating recycled materials and beautiful textures and shapes. It's a serene palette that whispers elegance. View trend.

Earth Color Terra

Earthy tones—reminiscent of sun-kissed terracotta—dominated Milan Design Week. Rounded shapes, inspired by Japanese and Korean design, evoke a sense of groundedness. At Coulisse, we've woven these warm terra hues into our texture-rich palette. Think cozy, inviting, and deeply connected to the earth. View trend.

Allure of Wood

Wood stole the show in Milan. Crafted by skilled artisans, it appeared in organic, unconventional shapes. Oak and American walnut exuded warmth and character. Whether it's a sculptural lamp or a sleek sideboard, wood remains timeless. View trend.

Textural Weavings and Organic Designs

Milan emphasized textures over grandeur. Natural, organic patterns seamlessly blended with textural weavings. Brands like Arte showcased captivating wallpapers, while Moooi hosted an exhibition titled ‘A Life Extraordinary’, which reflected a living, breathing room while presenting new designs by Cristián Mohaded and BCXSY, as well as a series of carpet and wall coverings. The designs were in new materials, such as fabrics and wood and all about tactile comfort and understated beauty. View trend.
