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.
