Top Interior Design Trends for 2019

In contrast to the stark-white minimalism of the Scandi movement, 2019 has witnessed a number of exciting new trends in homewares. Embracing vibrant colours, tropical prints and metallic accents, Australians are wanting more playful interiors that celebrate exotic places and different cultures, as well as an eco-friendly agenda. With this in mind, Early Settler has released the Treasures collection of on-trend homewares sourced from around the globe. Among the range are stylish and unique pieces carefully selected to embrace the top interior design trends for 2019.

With the shift into environmental consciousness and eco-friendly lifestyles, more and more people are seeking natural-looking materials and textures. Part of our Treasures collection, the Mantra range includes bathroom accessories with stone-like finishes. This terrazzo side table offers a little luxury in the bathroom, living room, on the deck or as a bedside table.

We’ve responded with a number of pieces, including the Cate chair in coral and Aruba coral cushion. The Constance Lady Bust and the Tate Collections French Lady with Flowers (top of page) emanate European chic.
