Spring/Summer 2021 homewares collections are here! I had a look at the releases from some of the brands I regularly check out and made a roundup of my favorite releases for you.
I paid special attention to sustainable releases with a Mediterranean flair.
If you have been following me for a while, you might already know that I’m bringing some Mediterranean vibes to my Swiss rental. I’m introducing materials such as terracotta, clay, and marble to bring that sense of craftedness that reminds me of my country of origin, Italy.
But let’s get back to the main point and have a first look at the new collections of homeware products for Spring/Summer 2021. These are all trendy pieces that can update your home in a flash without breaking the bank. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
The Travertine table is a beautiful object that you can use as a nightstand, coffee table, or mini storage unit. The minimalistic look makes it easily suitable for different interior styles.
SUSTAINABILITY – Travertine is a natural stone so it doesn’t require other materials or resources to produce it. It’s a very durable material and it’s completely recyclable.
The Peka Bench is suitable for both interiors and outdoors. It has a raw appearance that will change a bit over time. Something I really like about this piece of furniture is the narrow shelf behind the backrest.
SUSTAINABILITY: made from sustainable, FSC-certified Accoya-treated pine wood that means that the wood used for the product comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits.
Recycled wood made beautiful. The wooden console table by Madame Stoltz is a nice addition to a hallway: it brings pattern and texture while remaining natural.
SUSTAINABILITY: reclaimed wood is an eco-friendly choice because firstly it prevents the need for further trees to be cut down. Its aesthetic is quite peculiar since no two pieces of old wood are alike and it gives charme to modern interiors.
The Baz lounge chair is foldable and its seat and back are made of rattan in natural color. Rattan furniture dates back thousands of years and it’s perfect to outfit a Mediterranean home. This armchair complements well with earthy and organic textures and materials.
SUSTAINABILITY: rattan is a long-lasting material, which means that is not something you buy for one season and then throw away. Moreover, Rattan furniture manufacturing is low tech and doesn’t require production facilities that pollute the environment.
A decorative herringbone pattern gives Tegan rug a graphic expression that is appealing and calming at the same time.
SUSTAINABILITY – The rug is hand-woven and the warp is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton while the weft thread is made of STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®-certified natural wool.
This beautiful jar has been decorating my dining room table for a couple of weeks now and I love its dusty, textured surface. Each piece is made by hand so you cannot have two pieces alike. I love that Tine K Home is using the oldest known ceramic material giving it a timeless look. Just remember that clay is not waterproof so it’s better to use this vase with dried flowers or branches.
SUSTAINABILITY – Clay is a natural material that has been used for centuries and centuries. Pottery made of clay doesn’t need chemicals, is completely recyclable and actually can be returned to earth.
The Liba watering can is a modern take on the traditional pitchers with a generous capacity (up to 5 liters). This piece from Ferm Living SS21 pre-collection is the demonstration that you can have a good, functional design that is at the same time beautiful and decorative.
SUSTAINABILITY – it’s made from 100% recycled HDPE made from recycled post-consumer plastic. It’s a step towards a circular economy for plastics.
The Paper Collective sells limited edition prints and graphic design products created by a selection of designers and artists from all over the world. It’s one of my favorite platforms for affordable and beautiful art that suits a number of artistic styles, not only the Mediterranean one.
SUSTAINABILITY – they only use 200g uncoated, FSC certified, acid-free paper. Produced in Denmark under the Swan certification system.
The Vårfint tray is made of hand-woven bamboo and rattan and it can be used both as a serving and decorative tray.
SUSTAINABILITY – Renewable materials that age well. To produce the tray no fossil or finite materials are used.
