We asked consultant Rikke Skytte from Scandinavian trend institute Pej Gruppen to highlight one of the strongest AW 18/19 interior trends. Thus, we guide you through the freedom to be curious trend and show you how it materialises in carpets.

The unknown has always been a great attraction to creative minds. The unknown has no limits and calls for a curious, open and explorative approach. Not to forget a desire to challenge conventional norms and standards. The freedom to be curious trend direction demands design to create new meaning and to solve and discover unknown needs. The keywords are transboundary, constructive and explorative.

Colours, colours, colours!

Contrasting colours ranging from cool and dark to light and bright make up the freedom to be curious colour palette. Some colours form a mysterious base with their rich deepness. Others are multifunctional when appearing both soft and bright. At the other end of spectrum, you find the hyper bright pastels.

Nature’s laboratory

One of the freedom to be curious sub themes is nature’s laboratory that reflects a techno-poetic kind of nature in which technology and nature coexist in perfect harmony. New hybrids are created when exploring possibilities of the unknown.

Nature's laboratory reflects in interior pieces with supernatural surfaces and very tactile structures originating from, for instance, beetles, plants and crystals. These materials fascinate and inspire with their extremely rich and complex structured textures. Their colours are bright and dark as well as mat and glossy with a natural touch. The shapes are both soft and sharp and reflect the magic of our fascinating nature.
