Global influences interior trend, the Myakka way

Wednesday, 13 June 2018

It’s no surprise that the global influences interior trend is interwoven into every Myakka product. We’re very proud that all of our furniture, home accessories and lighting are sourced from fair trade suppliers in India, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. And this look is big for 2018. Both Good Homes Magazine and Ideal Home are tipping the global influences interior trend to make a comeback in a stylish way.

Bringing the global influences interior trend to your home

It’s so simple to introduce this trend into your home; just a hint of global inspiration can add lots of visual interest to a room. Equally, don’t be afraid to mix patterns, colours and cultural influences to create a layered, well-travelled look.

So here are our favourite ways to add some of the global influences interior trend to your home.

Fair Trade Furniture

Our range of fair trade furniture is handcrafted for us by artisan makers using sustainably sourced wood, including sheesham, mango, monkey pod and reclaimed pine.

We’ve had a long-running love affair with our Hathi Collection that just keeps getting stronger. Made from solid sheesham wood, we just can’t get enough of the hand carved elephants. This collection brings the perfect amount of global inspiration to your home and with pieces for the dining room, living room, bedroom and hallway, this truly unique furniture has something for every room.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something a little more colourful, how about our Neela Bone Inlay Collection? Combining hand carved bone (a by-product of the food industry) and azure blue resin in geometric patterns, these pieces are a real showcase of Indian artistry and craftsmanship. Moroccan-inspired, each piece will surely become the real ‘jewel’ of your home.

Our Mehindi Small Cabinet is a treasure chest of a different kind; handcrafted from mango wood and decorated by hand with exotic and colourful patterns borrowed from the magical art of Mehindi – the practice of henna body painting as used for centuries in India to heal, transform and bless. A beautiful fairly traded cabinet which combines useful storage with exotic individuality.

Timeless Textiles

Textiles are a simple yet effective way to introduce global-inspired patterns and colours into your home. Living up to its name, our Global Fusion range comprises colourful rugs, cushions and upholstery inspired by global style. One of our favourite pieces is the Global Fusion Round Pouffe. Upholstered in printed cotton and adorned with multi-coloured stitching and decorative tassels, it’s the ideal place to pop your feet up after a long day.

Show your floors a little exotic love with our Casablanca Berber Rug. This colourful interpretation of the original Moroccan Berber style rug proves that barefoot is best thanks to its snuggly mix of warm wool and cotton. Moreover, it’s a rug with the feel-good factor, thanks to it being GoodWeave certified. This pioneering charity works to stop child labour in the carpet and rug industry in countries such as India and Nepal, a cause which we are extremely proud to support.

Worldly Accessories

Global accessories can be a simple and inexpensive way to provide an adventurous, nomadic finishing touch to the room. We’re big fans of the animal kingdom at Myakka. So, of course, we had to add a little animalistic touch to the global influences interior trend! Our Savanna Animal Masks come in an array of designs and sizes. In fact, our customers love them so much that the Savanna family just keeps on growing! In addition, they make the most eye-catching and unusual wall décor and are sure to be a conversation starter for guests.

Lanterns add some exotic decoration and, when lit, a lovely warmth to any space. Named after the Hindi word for light, the handsome Roshani Lanterns honour India’s centuries-old tradition of metalwork. Made from metal with an aged brass finish, the hand-welded lanterns feature elaborate pierced patterns and have glazed sides.
