d*s mini trends! [modern floral]


flower power has graduated to the next level- today's designs embrace all things floral, but with a new, modern twist. whether it's an upholstered chair or a bold new wallpaper design, flowers are popping up all over- sometimes in the most unlikely of places. designers are putting their spin on the traditional floral motif- whether they use new materials like laser-cut steel or update a petal design to reflect contemporary interests, modern designers are leading the way for the contemporary flower power movement. so, check out these designs and get a little spring flower look going on in your apartment. enjoy!

This is great! i notice these kinds of trends around, but it's great to see such a cohesive compilation and formalisation.

i particularly like the texlile/oject marriage - something i'm into; and the multifacets - something i might experiment with.

cheers sarah

on the topic of multifaceted design you should look up Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia. It's pretty crazy and definitey fits the category in an asymmetrical way, kinda like the orrefors vase.

great site!
