OFF THE WALLS: What’s Next for the Color Block Trend

Furniture makers and artisans are embracing color in new ways by bringing pops of unexpected color onto furnishings.

We have seen color blocking used to define space for some time now (Architectural Digest- Color Blocking Ideas for a Bright and Cheery Home, 2016; DecorLove- Color Blocking At Home 2014) but it is having a profound resurgence that is more adventurous than its mid-century counterpart and more subdued than a trend adjacent to it by the name of maximalism.

In a world where life imitates art, Mondrian’s De Stijl style was seen on the runway via design maven Yves Saint Laurent’s eyes, who called it a “dialogue with art”.

This dialogue with art remains stronger than ever, gaining elevated status with designers and luxury furnishings manufacturers who are not only embracing color but reinventing interior spaces altogether

Gary Hutton: Chroma Table

Not surprising to anyone who follows color blocking and the inimitable Gary Hutton, the iconic Chroma Table is as perfectly geometrical as it is sophisticated fun.

Zinovatnaya Design: Utopia

Daria Zinovatnaya’s design philosophy is completely focused on the balance of geometry and color, which is evident in this project rightly named Utopia.

Ted Boerner’s playful Whisk Table adds a “whip of visual delight” to any social space. We love that this piece is completely customizable, so you can add a flair of color of your choice.

This Sphere8 stairway that spills into this industrial grey room adds a jarring contrast. We love the use of Benjamin Moore “Navajo Red” in these Ted Boerner Nesting Coffee Tables that would perfectly complement this room.
