A celebration of cultural heritage, Kinship represents our spirituality and the comfort of tradition and folklore.

Building upon the Tribal Trend we’ve seen this year in both the fashion and textile industries, we see the Kinship colour palette making a big impact in our homewares and soft furnishings of 2018.


Natural and recycled materials are the inspiration behind the Essential colour trend. Our evolving respect and appreciation of all things natural, our efforts in conserving the environment and our increased awareness of social and environmental issues have driven a trend towards a more natural design style, embracing the world around us rather than pushing it out. You will find the Essential colour palette includes soft, earthy tones to create a sense of peace, tranquility and natural charm.

A playful clash of colour, Escapade draws upon 70’s and 80’s designs to create a bold, beautiful look in any interior. Shades of blue, mint, pink and orange make for a modern twist on these retro favourites, creating an exciting, exotic theme.
