The Hottest Interiors Trend This Summer 2018

Say aloha! to smoking volcanoes and sunset hues with the season’s biggest and brashest totally tropical trend.

The hottest interiors trend this summer has been bubbling in the background for a while – we’ve seen a flurry of head-to-toe kaleidoscopic colours in all things  Frida Kahlo inspired and highlighter hues, the Hawaiian shirt has had a remix with House of Hackney’s tropical patterns printed onto &OtherStories clothing, meanwhile Emma J Shipley’s maximalist designs adorned Clarke & Clarke’s plump armchairs and we’ve seen a surge of new tropical prints and jungle-inspired homeware. So it should come as no surprise that one of the biggest trends taking the interiors world by storm this season are all things tropical.

Leading the tropical troupe, Seletti’s Volcano armchair is a four-legged vision of Polynesian perfection. Up for a holiday romance? Look no further than Jan Constantine’s appliquéd Love Birds cushion – the perfect match for Rosanna Lonsdale’s pineapple-stamped Aloha lamp. And with all that tropical goodness, you’ll be wearing your summer holiday on your sleeve (or sofa).

It’s going to be a long, hot summer…

LOVE BIRDS

Infuse your bed or sofa with a dash of the jungle with Jan Constantine’s Tropical Love Birds cushion with green and red tropical foliage hand embroidered onto felt.

PAJAKI

Although not technically tropical, Poland’s Pajaki paper chandeliers inject instant fun and colour. These ornate hanging decorations have been around for hundreds of years, originally crafted from humble and easily accessible materials including straw, paper, feathers, yarn, scraps of ribbon and string to brighten Polish homes during long, cold winters. We think they look just as fab (if not better) hung above the dining table or on the terrace during the summer.

Pajaki, £80, Raj Tent Club

VOLCANO ARMCHAIR

Part of the off-the-wall Seletti Wears Toiletpaper collection, the volcano armchair captures the brand’s signature playful style – inspired by everyday objects but always with an unexpected, witty twist.
