Trends | The Curator's Home + Discovery
Inspired by textural Ikat woven textiles, our first Ikat designs, created in-house, have the aesthetic of a rug alongside the practical features of a playmat.

Curiosity cabinets are ideal for displaying precious keepsakes, with wooden fronted or curtained cupboards to store away everyday essentials out of sight. Vintage sari fabric or hand blocked textiles can be framed as wall decor or used to upholster bespoke foot stools. Heirloom toys, such as rocking horses, are sourced from artisan markers.

The Kasuri design combines a gradient Ikat with deep indigo blue and almond tones to create a visually striking ombré effect. Inspired by traditional textiles practices, it's a beautiful baby mat to complement the Discovery trend, where a fresh fascination for ancient earth inspires home styling.
Elements for the trend include totem-esque decorative accessories, sculptural furniture and patterned wallpaper or textiles inspired by Hieroglyphic or ancient symbols. Toys include simple stacking pebbles in sensory stimulating metallics and statement lighting.
