This is really about the different levels of skin tone colours I’ve spotted from a pink through to softer brown tones; they’ve been used as an accent colour or as a block. Pink is usually associated with a girls bedroom but theses are rather more grown up sophisticated tones. It also reflects the popularity of these colour tones in a wider context – in fashion they’ve been very popular trend and as is so often the case colour trends are usually seen there before they make their way into the home. Suddenly all (well a good many!) samples have been given a pink make-over.
Inga Sempe’s Ruche bed for Ligne Roset was a last minute change. “I thought this was going to be blue!” she said as she bounced onto the bed shown at Maison et Objet. A quick change had been made to a softer feminine nude tone for the room set. As you can see from the image Inga left the bed unmade!
Also at Maison Object the Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec display had their Slow Chair for Magis in brighter ice cream pink.
The theme continued into Milan where any number of chairs appeared in fleshy tones through to deep raspberry.
Stefan Diez Houdini Chair mixed pink with dark leather.
Floris Schoonderbeek’s Axe chair also has a pink version.
Comet Chair Gunilla Allard for Lammhults comes in a range of pinks from soft light through to raspberry.
Maarten Baas used very fleshy tone of pink for his Clay range at Spazio Rosana Orlandi
Home accessories have also had the pink treatment Established & Son’s new Serve tray is edged in raspberry.
For textiles pink is an accent. Seen here Sebastain Wrong’s Zig Zag rug for Established & Sons, and finally Studio Makkink & Bey for Hay Studio who’s rug also appeared on the Vitra stand.
