Inside Design: Simple Stripes

One of the 2015 design trends is simple stripes. It's splashed all over products!

Stripes are everywhere! For decades this simple pattern has been a hit. Today, we’re spotting this 2015 design trend on decor and accessories. Stripes can be subtle, playful, or sophisticated. “There’s something so classic yet so versatile about stripes. Whether you’re going for a modern or more classic style, stripes are timeless,” says Angela, our director of product development. This is one of the most simplistic 2015 design trends, and we’ve spotted this pattern sprinkled across everyday products you’ll love.

Our first find is this Ralph Lauren bowl that has blue hues organically painted in a striped pattern. This bowl is calming, with the hand painted technique softening the striped pattern.

This Ralph Lauren Bowl has a beautiful striped hand-painted look. The perfect accent for your dinner table.

Inside Design: Kissed with Copper

Who would have thought a material made in pre-historic times would become one of our favorite 2015 design trends? But to our surprise, we’ve seen copper pop-up in many homes and products. The best part about copper is that it can add that perfect accent to any style of room – from rustic to modern. “It’s modern and warm yet has more of a casual feel than gold,” says Angela, our director of product development.

One product we’ve spotted and just can’t get enough of is this Penelope Accent Table from Crate & Barrel. We love the simple design, and its warm copper glow adds an interesting contrast to any room.
