Finally! The best four weeks of the year are here. It’s January.

INSPIRED DESIGN NEW WAVES With soft rolling waves in mind, architect Daniel Boddam has designed his striking new Coast furniture collection. Shown here are the Wave bed, Malibu side table and Celeste wall sconce – all clean, calm pieces with clear beachside references. The curved bedhead is a soft-structured marvel inspired by waves, and the sconces suggest pearls in an oyster – just the ticket for a bedroom with a beach view.

art smarts

Natalie Rosin SCULPTOR, SYDNEY Working with a temperamental material like clay might seem counterintuitive for the exacting mind of an architecture student, but for Natalie Rosin, who undertook a ceramics subject in the last two years of her study and never looked back, the unpredictability was strangely attractive. “I don’t know why I chose clay, but it’s like family; you can’t choose them yet you unconditionally love them.” Although she put aside a career in architecture to pursue art full-time in 2017, her background still has a strong influence on her practice, with Modernist architects such as Le Corbusier, Harry Seidler and Robin Boyd informing her design aesthetic. What Natalie loves most about creating art is the process. “The constraints of clay really interest me,” she says. “I love how the material…

I really got into it about six years ago, and I’ve owned Poho now for about five years. Poho has a signature aesthetic — how would you describe it?

The signature is evolving and it has a more contemporary feel now. Which flowers are having a moment? More traditional flowers that have been around for a long time, like chrysanthemums and orchids, are coming back into vogue. Baby’s…

For me, 2020 will be about layering, texture and rich tones” GEORGIA EZRA, INTERIOR DESIGNER Turn the texture up to 10: irresistibly tactile materials are the foundation on which a beautiful living room is formed. Extending from super-soft rugs to touch-me wall-coverings, the effect is beautifully soothing. Upholstery fabrics play to this trend, with velvet, bouclé and linen all leading the pack this year. “It makes me happy to see fabrics coming to the fore again,” says Melbourne-based interior designer Camilla Molders. “There are so many incredible fabric choices on the market right now.” Bespoke furniture will be big news in 2020, driven by the urge designers have to utilise those gorgeous fabrics (paired…
