This season, timber has taken on a natural, smoky look. “The grey finish cools down the warmth of the wood grain making it ideal for all types of decor schemes,” says Justin Vickers of JVB Furniture Collection. Slender console table from JVB.

3. CLASSIC CHANDELIERS

“Crystal chandeliers like this one from Eurolux are back in a big way,” says Kelly Klopper, brand manager at Eurolux. Just like a little black dress, the new releases are classic, but as they’re far less ornate, they also complement contemporary furnishings.

4. SCALLOPS AND SCALES

Fish for compliments with design motifs inspired by the sea. From shells to fish tails, these curved, feminine patterns offer a softer alternative to geometrics. Scallop shapes and brass detailing up the luxe factor. Glazed tiles from Hadeda.

5. GOLD AND BRONZE

Moving away from the pink rose shade, the new golds are pale and classic, while brass takes on an antique finish. You’ll find metallic details on table legs and light fittings such as this velvet-look stool from Mr Price Home.
