Muuto from David Village Lighting
Muuto are striving to expand the Scandinavian design tradition with new and original perspectives. Muuto, inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective.
To them good design starts with the person. By handpicking the brightest design talent in Scandinavia and giving them the freedom to express their individual story through everyday objects. Some want to alter the world, others find passion in colour and shape or draw deeply from personal experience. How do they see a chair, vase, lamp or any other everyday product? You will know their design because it has muutos. Objects made sublime through new perspectives, enjoyed across the world, representing the best of Scandinavian design today.

How to: Scandinavian Chic with Muuto
A trend that has taken the interior design scene by storm: Scandinavian living. Minimal designs, uncomplicated aesthetics and completely functional, there is no wonder why the world has fallen in love with the ways of the far north.
One brand offering the complete Nordic lifestyle is Muuto, comprising of lighting, furniture and accessories. Here is how to incorporate Scandinavian chic into your own home:
Create a cosy corner.
Soft fabrics, comfy pillows, side tables and functional lighting. These components make up the ideal space to recharge your batteries and indulge in a moment to one’s self.
A large part of the Scandinavian lifestyle is to live socially, whether that is sharing a meal or memories over drinks. Open spaces for kitchen and dining areas are popular to allow everyone to partake in the experience. Generous tables, plentiful chairs and dining accessories all help to make each gathering a social event to remember.
Unique storage systems designed by you, to fit your own requirements and tailored to your needs. Personalised storage helps tidy your space stylishly, displaying items that express your personality and add interest to your home. Muuto provide alternatives to standard storage solutions, giving homeowners and interior designers the chance to create a display worthy of being the main feature.

New - Muuto Framed
Here at David Village we don’t only specialise in lighting, we love furniture and accessorise too! So we introduce to you the new Muuto Framed Mirror collection designed by Anderssen & Voll.
The Framed collection is a series of mirrors with coloured glass in two sizes and three colour options; Taupe, Rose and Grey. The coloured glass challenges the way a classic mirror is placed within an interior and adds dimension to the room. The mirrors can be hung on their own or in group, creating an art-like installation on a wall.
The mirror’s formation begins when a steel plate is worked through three rounds to create the desired shape, the surface is then powder lacquered using a highly durable lacquer. Lastly the mirror glass is gently placed creating the little gap between the mirror’s frame and the glass.
The designers of the Framed Mirror series, Anderssen & Voll expressed “We wanted to create a mirror that was more than merely a reflective surface. FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It adds not only the functionality of a mirror to your home, but with its depth, organic shape and tone-in-tone colour, it is almost perceived as an art object on the wall. The FRAMED mirror can hang beautifully on your walls alone or combined with other sizes and colours.”

Maison and Objet Key Trends for 2015
The Maison and Objet event in Paris is a forecast for interior trends for the year ahead, comparable to Fashion week in Spring/Summer. This year the event has predicted four key trends based upon the popular themes and attention created by the exhibitors and exhibition visitors. The first unsurprising trend is Metallics. Particularly warm toned hues. This choice of metallic finishes has progressively become more popular for a few years now and has gradually filtered even down onto the high street! Here are our picks for the Metallic trend:
1 - Kartell Fly Precious Pendants 2 - Tom Dixon Copper Mirror Ball shade 3 - Anglepoise Original 1227 in Chrome 4 - Tom Dixon Base Copper Floor Lamp 5 - &Tradition Utzon in Copper 6 - Terzani Orten’zia Table Lamp in Gold 7 - Foscarini Birdie Table Lamp in Chrome 8 - &Tradition Flowerpot in Copper 9 - Tom Dixon Base Table Lamp in Polish Brass 10 - Kartell Bourgie Copper Table Lamp
Our second trend From Maison and Objet is Hints of Neon, maybe not to everyone’s liking but a just a hint of a bright colour can add a bright cheerful pop of colour into our homes, especially appropriate for the Spring/Summer time. It is a nod to the 90’s as Fashion has also done. Neon has been seen on textiles, furniture, home accessories and also lighting. Be brave and give it a try! Here are our Picks for Neon Trend:
1 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in orange 2 – Artemide Tolomeo Tavolo Micro in yellow 3 – Vibia Wind Suspension in green or orange 4 – Oluce Canopy 422 in Pink 5 – Kartell Ghost Chairs in assorted colours 6 – Kartell Cindy Table Lamp in orange 7 – Kartell Bourgie Table Lamp in Blue
The third trend on the 2015 forecast is the colour Santorini Blue a shade to provoke a Mediterranean but modern vibe, a shade of blue to create tranquillity and timeless look within a space. These are our Santorini Blue Trend options:
Our final trend noted from Maison and Objet is the Natural Minerals, the style has come from the increasing need for eco friendly home fashions and is becoming increasing popular. Aesthetics showcasing a rustic, hand crafted and natural look, often paired with pastel and neutral colours to complete the highly stylish design. Here are our picks from this theme:
