20 Jul Blue jeans, baby – an unexpected home trend for 2017

Jeans, denim, blues, whatever you call them– the denim trend in fashion is at an all-time high for 2017.

While every woman’s denim collection should consist of the classics like simple skinny jeans, a great pair of flares, and your go-to comfy jeans, it never hurts to add a trend-driven style to your rotation each season…think patched over, fringed hem or ripped. No other textile has the iconic status of denim, the most worn fabric of all times. Surprisingly, the sturdy material has also become one of the year’s biggest home and interior trends, so bust the blue jeans out of the closet and test the fit in your home! Inspired by the diversity of the authentic garment, Desso®, now stocked by FloorworX, has launched a new carpet tile called Jeans, which forms part of the Essentials collection.

DESSO Jeans

With Essentials, Desso® wants to pay a tribute to classic designs through temporary interpretations of iconic textiles. In such a collection, a product inspired by one of the most popular fabrics cannot be excluded. The creative and dynamic Jeans range enables designers and architects to create a characteristic look in an interior suited for a more informal look. The range features six stunning denim-inspired shades in three different structures to zone or create large spaces through different textures and subtle patterns. From a light stonewashed effect to a distinct denim woven look, designers can coordinate and contrast in three different pattern combinations to set a dynamic tone in the workplace. The Essentials collection’s timeless, minimalistic design comes standard with an EcoBase™ backing that contains upcycled re-engineered calcium carbonate (chalk) from local drinking water companies.

“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity.” Yves Saint-Laurent, and with him many others, knew how to appreciate the powerful and practical look of denim. Jeans have an unmistakable and unique identity. This season, denim’s casual, inviting warmth has translated equally from the wardrobe, to the floor; up against the wall; onto the dining table; into the living room, and even inside the bedroom. Heleen van Gent, creative director of Dulux’s Global Aesthetics Centre, said: “Our review of international architecture, fashion and design trends revealed that blue is the colour of the moment.

“To make it relevant for your home, the team chose a blue that works well in a kitchen as it does in a bedroom. Denim Drift is the must-have colour for 2017.”

According to Dulux, Denim Drift, is a beautiful, timeless and versatile grey-blue that takes on a different characteristic depending on how it’s used, perfectly capturing the mood of the moment and embodying our lives for 2017. The accompanying palette of tonal blue shades creates a truly accessible range that can be easily translated into architecture and interior decorating. Versatile, durable, comfortable, and stylish, this “almost-neutral” hue is not only the ultimate wardrobe chameleon, but plays well with other colours and gives even the most iconic designs a fresh spin.
