New trends at Indigo!
Indigo Living’s new showcase for Spring/Summer 2021 celebrates the “homecation”, with products across three key trends to elevate your at-home ambience.
#1 Sleek Curves:
Ideal for evoking a sense of calm and comfort, this trend appears at Indigo in sofas, benches and more. We’re loving the textured architectural curves of the Arched Console Table – ideal for Hong Kong spaces – and the striking artistic flair of the Sleek Curves Cabinet.
#2 Forever Blue:
Recreate an easy-breezy coastal beach escape and bring the outdoors in with this trend that features nautical, organic silhouettes. Start with a sandy white centrepiece such as the Eclipse Coffee Table, and add pops of colour like the ocean-blue hues of the Roxy Chair.
#3 Tokyo Moment:
Understated elegance comes to life in this fresh collection that focuses on bringing peace to a space while embracing the beauty of “perfectly imperfect”. Standout pieces include the Odi Chair, and the textured, tactile, woven rattan of the Tokyo Cabinet.

Spring has sprung
The arrival of spring heralds new beginnings and brighter days. So why not add a more colourful palette to the home, too?

Highlights include exuberant and striking prints for indoor and outdoor applications from Manuel Canovas (pictured), as well as charming Eastern-inspired fabrics from Colefax & Fowler. Meanwhile, the newest Oceania trimming collection from Samuel & Sons captures the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, in clear blues, vivid corals and warm whites.

It seems black is the new black when it comes to interior design. At TREE, the “Graphic” collection features pieces crafted from sustainably sourced solid European oak stained in black.

Our concrete jungle doesn’t conjure the greenest of thoughts. However, according to Colliers, the rising awareness of wellness, smart living and the environment have become key for developers and landlords in Hong Kong. In March last year, 31 leading property and construction firms signed the Hong Kong Business Environment Council’s Low Carbon Charter, agreeing to work towards decarbonisation. Colliers believes we should now start to see more residential projects featuring sustainability concepts – great news for all. Read more about these hopeful trends in the property market in their report, “Smart and Green Living in Action”.
