Sustainable Interior Trends

Interiors Lifestyle

According to the Evening Standard one of the biggest Scandinavian interior trends for 2019 is sustainability. They describe it as being 'the untrendy' trend - by which they mean avoiding fashions that change each season and instead buying into pieces that do not fall into these categories; therefore making them more long-lasting. 

    "One of the biggest interior trends in Scandinavia for 2019 is - believe it or not - the untrendy trend. In other words this year it is all about sustainability and staying away from fad trends that only last one season. Instead we are focusing on creating a personal home with investment pieces you'll keep forever, buying second hand and using natural long-lasting materials such as rattan, leather, linen and wood. This is a step in the right direction and a trend we can really get on board with!" You can read their full article here.

    This is a great news for us, because it is the exact ethos behind White Space Home. We want our customers to make considered choices that are long lasting, well designed and compliment their own personal style not someone else's. Add this combination to our carefully sourced selection of vintage and pre-loved items as well as keeping well away from plastic and we are on our way to a more sustainable home and lifestyle.

    We have listed our favourite products that fall into this ‘Scandinavian Sustainability’ trend below:
