H&D Hotlist #008: New design products, furniture and home accessories
Botanical- and nature-inspired prints are on-trend at the moment and here’s how you can make full use of them, with accessories like Larsen’s new fabric collection. Each piece embodies elements of the natural environment, like the lines of tree barks, the veins of leaves and the fossilised effect of stones. Use them on cushions, curtains or upholstery, for textural effect. The designs are captivating enough to keep your home looking stylishly timeless, long after the trend is over.
SEE LARSEN’S COMPLETE RANGE OF FABRICS AT TATUM’S SHOWROOM, 29B KEONG SAIK ROAD.
