In response to a changing home environment, GlobeWest is introducing four new collections and more than 115 new products.
The Aussie designer furniture and homewares brand’s head of creative, Keti Lytras says the team is focused on the major lifestyle shifts brought on by the pandemic in 2020.
“This past year has exposed the flaws in our homes but has also heightened our need for them to make us feel good and emphasised our desire to share them with loved ones,” she says.
“Spaces that balance longevity, flexibility, comfort and self-expression are being sought and seen more than ever as an investment in happiness at home.”
Eye-catching silhouettes and grounding sculptural forms are prominent in the new capsule, says Lytras. A raw, fossil-like cement finish evokes the senses whilst organic materials and textures are celebrated in fresh takes on rattan and finely carved oak detailing.
“Cosy boucle and soft coloured velvets nourish, whilst expressive jacquards, corduroy and rich textured tweeds speak to nostalgic times.
“A sense of lightness emerges in sleek and airy silhouettes and creamy neutral hues including putty and oatmeal. Vibrant mustards and caramel juxtapose beautifully against moody midnight tones.”
The Aria collection is a modern take on classicism, with a curved black oak frame and grooved doors sitting on fine metal legs or inset base in a sleek buffet, entertainment unit and bedside table.
Beau’s solid cubic frame, minimalist details and block-like legs are a celebration of simplicity, explains Lytras. A natural oak option offers a sense of retreat whilst its matt black finish brings a modern aesthetic to a versatile buffet, entertainment unit and bedside table.
Add an element of gritty realism to a refined interior with Element’s solid block side tables. A raw cement finish and fossil colourway bring a contemporary twist to classic masonry.
Other new additions include the Linea Chubby coffee and side table featuring thick cylindrical legs and a round natural oak top, whilst the Kennedy Swivel occasional chair shines in golden mustard corduroy. The Humphrey Slope occasional chair brings distinct character in caramel leather and sand weave and includes a moveable head rest for comfort.
GlobeWest also recently added some international brands to its portfolio including Ethnicraft Outdoor collection, Scandinavian designed Sketch and Gus*Modern.
