Inspired Trends

Slow life

A call to slow down, focus on what matters…and ditch your smartphone!

Industrial designer Gregory explains

The Slow Life is more than a trend. It’s an art, a way of life that cultivates tranquillity, simplicity and conviviality. Without screens, the senses reawaken: we notice the intermingling flavours in a dish, we let the soothing sounds of our loved ones’ speech wash over us, we let our gaze linger on a bouquet of wild flowers. The break does a body good, so why not extend it?

Unplug

Even better than a digital detox, the Slow Life takes you back to a time before the Internet, social media or smartphones existed.

Time

Prepare a meal, go for a walk, play cards… Indulge in these simple pleasures to your heart’s content, without keeping one eye glued to the clock. It’s the ultimate luxury.

Share

Need a recipe for a favourite dish? With Google out of the picture, turn to your friends or family members for help. And afterwards, you might even remember the recipe!

Green

Like the many shades of the natural world. By turns bright as a green shoot, light as a flowing creek and deep as an ancient forest.

White

A sharp, bright white all over, to create spaciousness and soothe the soul.

Pink

A dusty rose that gives way to deep plum. It shows up as subtle accents in the pattern of a shabby rug or in a glass or hibiscus juice.

Wild flowers

Without technology to occupy our time, we can give wild flowers and weeds the attention they deserve. In bouquets, in pots, even on plates—they’re everywhere you turn!

Wool, cotton, linen

Wrap yourself in simple yet elegant softness with these noble fabrics.

Wood

This is THE predominant material in Slow Life design. Opt for very rustic or worn. It brings in a natural element, of course, but also a feeling of family.
