2017 trend report

1 Don’t be dye hard For those who struggle to commit to a new hair colour, advancements in wash-out colours and one-day colour sprays by the likes of L’Oréal make total sense. If you’re particularly moody about hair care, a dye by The Unseen Alchemist changes hair colour from black to red, depending on your mood, as translates through body temperature. 2 Round furniture Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has always made a case for spots and there is a reason her dotty exhibitions are still popular after 65 years on show. Circular objects bring a sense of calm, and round furniture is the latest feng shui favourite. 3 TEA IS THE NEW WINE Tea menus are becoming just as long and detailed as a wine list.

FEATURE WALLPAPER As a traditional home staple, it was only a matter of time before patterned wallpaper was made new again. In the 1960s, wallpapers from Mason Handprints emerged from Plimmerton, just north of Wellington. William and Maureen Mason’s prints were renowned for their spirited and balanced motifs, epitomised by the Tosca pattern, pictured. They quickly reached iconic status in Australia and New Zealand and the company was sold to Resene Paints in 1974.

Resene’s paint and colour technology inject a modern dynamism into the designs. As well as being available in pre-selected colours the wallpaper can be…

A chair for the future It looks like a modern bistro chair from the cafés of Paris but this seat was designed in Wanaka. It has travelled far, however. It was taken to Paris Design Week and has won gold at the Melbourne Design Awards and Singaporean JEC Innovation Awards.

Eight years in the making, the seat weighs less than 3kg but is five times stronger than wood and is scratch resistant. Revology says the innovative chair marks the future of furniture, which relies on strong design and sustainability to be enjoyed by generations to come. revology.com TACTILE TREND As a supplier of…

The Body Laid Bare: Masterpieces from Tate is the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki’s major exhibition for the year. Rhana Devenport tells us what makes it so special. A study of the nude in all its forms, this collection of artworks is at times provocative. Why do you think the body has been so treasured by artists and depicted in so many works? This subject, the nude, connects with the core of our humanity – our vulnerability and strength. Art becomes a medium of truth and intimacy between the artist and the sitter and that moment of connection is further translated by and shared with audiences. Tell us about your favourite piece (or pieces) in the show. I am fascinated by the presence and power of women artists in every room of the…
