The most obvious situations for seeing new trends are by way of design shows and collection drops. Intentionally or not, there always comes a time when you see a certain shape or color at every turn. But what about looking to the food and beverages that are showing up all over menu? Look to avocado toast for a solid neutral palette with texture. The turmeric latte is hot in more way than one. How about unicorn food with all the sparkles and shades of purple? They say you are what you eat, but now we’re saying your design choices are what you eat too. Here are some of the fads in food we can’t help but notice in interiors and furnishings.
Whether you’re familiar with the tuberous root or not, it has been making its way everywhere lately, especially in the form of warm foamy beverages. The rich yellow-orange color in these seating elements serve as a bold jewel tone without being overwhelming. Turmeric works for accents pieces or a whole room scheme—paired with white, it really pops.
Sure, these pieces have “kiwi” and “olive” in the names, but they look like an all-day-café breakfast staple to us. The velvet and tweed upholsteries of these Article chairs have varying shades depending on which level of ripeness you prefer.
Orange wine: It’s robust and bold, sour and nutty; it’s popular in the natural wine scene and has a lovely color. We’re spotting a lot of beautiful glass pieces that make us think of the beverage.
In the full-on whimsy category, we’ve got unicorn food. You know, magical doughnuts and purple-pink blended drinks. Sparkle and shimmer are typically involved. Ideal for a bold personality, this look is a lot, but it’s definitely fun.
