The 2020’s have announced themselves in a very similar fashion to the twenties a century ago. In 1920 the world was recovering from the Spanish flu, a devastating pandemic that claimed millions of lives. As we’re starting 2021 with the increased availability of vaccines and worldwide covid cases dropping, we start to make prospects for the post COVID life. The surge in optimism will almost surely announce a new era, with clear similarities to the 1920s. The roaring 2020s will be a time of unbridled optimism, fueled by strong government spending boosting the economy.
The changed lifestyle and general sense of liberation are bound to have effects on the way we dress and how we decorate our interiors. We envision a clear trend for romanticized interiors, powerful color statements, and the revival of art deco patterns. Our capsule collection 20×20 is the translation of how we envision the resurgence of art deco, yet adapted to the aesthetic sense of a new century. As part of our custom concept you are able to adapt colors and scale to your project specifications. You can not only select your own colors. You are also able to customize the carpet construction. We offer cut pile and loop pile options, as well as a selection of nylon, Axminster type blends, and 100% recycled nylon.
For this roaring 2020s design, we take inspiration from architect Henry Lacoste. More specifically, his 20th-century Belgian Art Deco interior at the Brussels Brugmann Hospital. Henry Lacoste was a Belgian avant-garde architect. He was influenced by primitive and classical art. He reflected the art deco style through geometric forms in most of his creations.
Mugler stuns in the new SS21 ready-to-wear collection, premiered digitally. The show’s designers use cinematics to make models look like they are on top of The Paris Opera. New Hampshire born Casey Cadwallader imagines a post-pandemic world with his innovative apparel, where people can attend parties and workspaces in his beautiful suits. We envision a futuristic carpet for the runway, with a definite art deco touch.
Often the smallest details we observe in unexpected moments can become the largest sources of inspiration. This little blue door we discovered, triggered our creative mind to design a linear and geometric pattern. We love the playfulness of this carpet design and mix of curved lines with alternating stripe thicknesses. The colors are warm and rich, yet still offer a subdued aesthetic. This pattern is one of our roaring 2020s patterns, forecasted for a more playful and bright approach to interiors.
Bold patterns with contrasting colors evoke happy feelings, a celebration of vibrance that will emerge at the end of the COVID-pandemic and the start of the roaring 2020s.
We take inspiration from street art spotted in Valencia, Spain. The Ruzafa neighborhood is filled with really cool street art and definitely worth exploring.
