NEW! Flexibility without complexity

Carcassing within furniture is often either matching, to tie in with doors and other elements of the design, or quite frequently, white, as seen particularly with large popular furniture manufacturers.

However, this has changed somewhat in recent years, with manufacturers wanting to offer the consumer choice, such as door styles and colours etc. whilst taking out the complexity of offering a large range of matching carcasses.

Something Different

Within the furniture industry, where many designs and styles can often look the same, manufacturers and designers are now looking for that ‘something different’ to set themselves apart.

Rather than just through colour, they are looking to differentiate using finishes with deep textures and highly realistic prints, which look and feel like the real thing.

Dark Woods

In the past dark, rich woodgrains have been associated with high end furniture design. Recently we’ve noticed a change in their application as a number of new dark woodgrain alternatives have been introduced to create a modern yet luxurious finish.

These new decors feature a colour variation in the grain, this helps to combine them with popular solid colours for a contemporary look and feel. As these darker shades have evolved they are now being used to break down large interiors and lighten-up spaces.

Style Revival

Over recent years we have seen the revival of popular designs and styles from the past reappearing in natural and modern ways.

This is partly down to texture and print development, making these designs more realistic. But also due to their variety of colour, making them ideally suited to the current trend of mixing popular trend orientated whites and greys with woodgrain designs.
