DO IT NATURALLY

Following spring's obsession with rose gold,
the trend or eta ics is de nite y on the
up. For the summer months, look to brass
and bron e too or a grown-u nish to
your living areas.
Renowned for his innovative approach to
design, former kitchen designer of the year
Martin o iday o ne urniture akers
Chiselwood, reveals what's cooking.
'The key trends in kitchen design this
year focus on stone and metal, with a rise
in demand for ceramic, copper and bronze.
I've designed a new display in our showroom,
Victoria, to incorporate some eye-catching
and innovative contemporary on-trend
features, such as the striking lighting from

simple yet striking contemporary pieces.
No matter what your style, be it shabby chic,
retro, minimalist or something altogether
more glamorous, choosing furniture that
showcases the best of Mother Nature is a
must this summer. The focus has shifted from
the traditional use of wood and fabrics to
more unusual applications of natural materials.
Sofas wrapped in wood, cabinets inlaid
ith fabric and tables that redefine the
use of wood are all being championed by
designers to give greater choice when it
comes to creating a unique home.
The Living by Christiane Lemieux Cleo

this trend (£345, House of Fraser).
The Cavo Stool (£134, distinctify.com),

A UNIQUE TALKING
Given that fabric is such a key ingredient when it comes to creating
the perfect sofa or suite, this one pictured above (£2,005, wesleybarrell.co.uk) is just the ticket for summer. Part of the Mulberry Stripes
collection, its blue, white and red stripes are evocative of university
rowing clubs and old-fashioned beach deckchairs.
It works perfectly with both classic and modern styles of furniture.
Combine these time-honoured stripes with splashes of colour and
vibrant Aztec-inspired prints for a contemporary British festival look.
When it was founded in 2005, furniture company
Naughtone vowed to keep things easy, designing pieces that
were both useful and beautiful. Twelve years later and the
British manufacturer's credo remains - just take a look
