The hand­made and upcy­cling trend con­tin­ues with “reKraft” cush­ion­ing us from every­day strife. Over-sized knits and knot­ted details enjoy a resur­gence as we lean towards softer, hand-crafted inte­rior pieces.

With craft fast becom­ing a top trend, many of these items reflect age-old tra­di­tional crafts, adding an orig­i­nal hand­made feel to the sets. In recent years, we have seen the return of a ‘make do and mend’ men­tal­ity as con­sumers have once again resorted to mak­ing their own goods by hand. This men­tal­ity has fil­tered through to design­ers who have revis­ited old craft tech­niques and skills whilst at the same time rein­vent­ing them and giv­ing them a mod­ern twist. It is no longer old-fashioned but re-invented, refreshed and modernised.

Tex­tures that scream ‘win­ter’, include knit­ted, mohair, cro­cheted and felt decor items. From cush­ions, rugs, and fur­ni­ture, to light­ing, stor­age, clocks and wall cov­er­ings, it seems that noth­ing has escaped this years’ trend for craft in inte­rior design. In line with all those fuzzy win­ter feel­ings you get from curl­ing up on the couch, these pieces give that sense of warmth and lux­ury that we all looked for­ward to when the colder weather comes around. So whether you crack out your knit­ting nee­dles on these long win­ter evenings and get mak­ing your own home acces­sories or whether you buy some of the incred­i­ble prod­ucts already avail­able on the mar­ket, you’re in for a warmer win­ter this year.
