Roundtable report: What is driving current trends in colour and texture?


We brought together some of the industry’s leading interior design professionals this month at the Material Lab in London for our round table event in partnership with AJ Specification magazine.

Tasked with putting current trends in colour and texture in the spotlight, our lively debate highlighted many key factors including the trend for aged and distressed looks, demand for flexibility and the desire to tell a story using key materials.

Chaired by our very own Paul Barratt (pictured top), managing director of Karndean Designflooring, our guests included Ian Cowell, head of design at Tetris Projects, Diana Celella, chairman of regional directors at the Society of British and International Design (SBID), Gwenda Jones, director of Gwenda Jones Interiors and Rory Macpherson, founder of Play Associates.
