Current Trends

At Shelf Direct we like to foresee new trends and must-have pieces that we can’t wait to get our hands on! From colours to prints and technology, stay ahead of the trends with these insights from the experts.

Natural stone and earthy interiors

Natural stone colours, from bronzy browns, dove greys, pines and oaks are some of the hottest trending colours and looks for 2018. Check out our pine grey and natural oak floating shelving, available in a variety of sizes.

Geometrics & hexagons with be everywhere

Minimalist yet timelessly chic, the hexagon is a shape commonly used for a modern edge in interiors. If you love wall art, consider choosing pieces that feature a geometric look.

Or you could look at making a more powerful statement, by putting the print on one of the larger design elements of your space. Consider a sprawling area rug to warm up your floors or a geometric accent chair to offset a mostly neutral seating area.

Fabulous foliage

Houseplants have taken over our interiors at a rampant pace over the past few seasons, so the natural progression was bound to be foliage-inspired accessories of oak bark shelves and trending décor shelves to place your favourite artificial hydrangea. The bark edge of these oak shelves makes every one unique. The contrast of the heartwood and sapwood gives a lovely subtle edge to the shelf.

Brass will be the new copper

Metallic finishes on light fittings, tech gadgets and other home accessories will continue to shine in 2018 but, the metal of choice will be brass, replacing 2017’s preference for rose-tinted copper.

Go bold

Go bold this year with our extremely popular shiny metallic wired shelving brackets, available in a variety of sizes. Mix and Match with some quirky bright accessories or to match your flawless suede sofas.

Reclaimed woods & dark rustics
