Outdoor Trends 2018: Mediterranean VS Nordic
The new outdoor trends are an invitation to bring a personal touch to spaces, taking inspiration from a contemporary approach to DIY.
The leitmotiv is a smooth flow of style from indoors to outdoors, with the accent on comfortable furnishings, versatile solutions and settings that are cosier and more inviting than ever. But let’s start from the basics.
More than anywhere else, material surfaces have an essential role to play outdoors, bringing shape and substance to projects and inspiring furnishing choices and colour combinations.
The only must for choosing outdoor paving is impressive technical performance: covering materials must be able to stand up to all kinds of weather, guarantee safety in all conditions and keep looking great over the years.
Add this performance to sophisticated Italian-crafted style and maximum versatility, and you’ve got Hi-Thick, Marca Corona’s project for outdoors.
If your mood is in keeping with Mediterranean atmospheres, you won’t be able to resist sophisticated furnishings, chaises longues, wooden furniture, wicker accessories, terracotta pots and artistic ceramics, with colours that recall Mediterranean vegetation and turn the outdoors into your favourite place to relax after a long, busy day.
This Mediterranean style and atmosphere can be found, for example, in the Springstone series, an authentic collection that comes in four earthy colours and two striking material finishes.
The discreet elegance of these thickened paving materials creates a calm, relaxing setting even on the hottest, sunniest days.
If your inspiration blows in with the North wind, the hallmark of your settings will be a no-frills elegance with a vaguely retro air, featuring simple wood and metal furnishings with a high-tech touch. And if it’s Nordic style you’re after, the Green element is a must!
A quintessentially Nordic-Scandinavian look for the outdoors can be obtained with Restyle, a wood-effect porcelain stoneware series that offers a variety of striking natural patterns: the colour contrasts of the stylish shaded surfaces bring a touch of contemporary character to outdoor spaces.
Mediterranean or Nordic? Which style is best suited to an on-trend outdoor look?
There’s no right answer. Whatever your choice, make sure you bring an irresistibly unique finish with Hi-Thick!
