Today we talk to Kylie and Simone, the inspiration behind the very best of European design, urbaani homewares.
Can you tell us what urbaani homewares is all about?
urbaani brings together a range of specialty homewares from the best that Europe has to offer. We have everything you need to create your dream home and live in it. From kitchen to bathroom, living, dining and outdoors. We want to create a lifestyle that reflects who you are and tells your layered story.
What was your inspiration?
We love travelling and love finding unique pieces that speak about the places we have been. We are also self-confessed home accessories addicts, so we decided to combine our two passions. Our goal was to offer up a range of unique products that were functional yet stylish and inspire people to create spaces that were warm and inviting.
What are the key design trends for 2016?
Geometric compositions are still quite trendy. We will see a lot of use in both traditional and contemporary designs in rugs, art and soft furnishings. Getting back to nature will also feature with more accessories and furniture being shared between indoor and outdoor use.
So what is your favourite piece at the moment?
Our favourite piece are our gorgeous new Swedish rugs. Made from PVC, they are perfect for both indoor and outdoor use and are available in a range of traditional Scandinavian designs. Whether it’s out by the pool, the outdoor dining area or as a runner in the laundry these stylish rugs are so versatile yet offer a touch of glam to a space.
And the special room in your home?
It would have to be our living room space. It is filled with family holiday photos and treasures we find on our travels. Each picture and object tells a story and is filled with memories.
Any plans for your home this year?
I always look forward to the winter months and changing up our living room and cosy nook with any new blankets, pillows and throws that we have. We are super excited about our new Norway range, so I will be raiding the boxes when they arrive…..ssshhhh don’t tell Kylie (business partner!)
