Recently the Danish paper Jyllandsposten did an interview with our Brand Manager Britt Bonnesen about the trends of 2015 for their Sunday supplement JP Living. To keep you on the cutting edge of this year’s trends we have summed up her predictions in this post.
Britt Bonnesen, Brand Manager at Normann Copenhagen
Britt believes the inspiration from the 1950’s which we have seen in 2014 will continue this year. Focus will be on craftsmanship and high quality. Overall we will pay greater attention to tactile qualities and materials will be mixed and used in new, surprising ways. Marble, which could be seen everywhere in 2014, will stay trendy, but colored versions will replace the white.
2015 will be a colorful year. All though the colors will be soft, we will see more of them and combine them more daringly. Besides plenty of white and gray hues, the color range for 2015 will include blush, rouge, navy blue and bottle green.
The colors bottle green and blush will be big in 2015
The Amp Lamps mix the high quality materials marble and glass in a nostalgic yet contemporary design. The colored marble and mix of materials make these lamps perfect for a 2015 interior update
Transparent glass, as seen in the Amp Lamps, will be one of 2015’s trends, Britt predicts. Transparent elements add lightness and glass is an easy way of bringing it in to the decor. In Normann Copenhagen’s new glass pieces the delicacy of the glass is balanced with chunky shapes.

Britt Bonnesen believes we will see a lot of textiles in 2015’s interiors. Upholstered furniture, curtains and maybe even tapestry or walls covered entirely with fabric. If you are not ready to jump into textile walls, then paint them instead. Soft exclusive nuances can create a feeling of matte texture similar to that of textiles.

Another trend, Britt believes in, is metallic materials and high gloss finishes. Metals like copper and brass have long been a big hit, but for 2015 several different types of shiny surfaces will find their way into our homes.
The Basic Series in titanium-coated stainless steel and soft silicone is a beautiful representation of the metallic trend. The coated steel material has a silky finish and the silicone is soft to the touch
Lacquered steel, for example, which has an almost glazed paper-like appearance that looks great in contrast with more matte materials.

While lighter types of wood like ash and oak have dominated our homes in recent years, Britt foresees that darker wood species like for example walnut will be back in 2015. At Normann Copenhagen we welcome the dark wood which we think gives a pleasant warmth and depth to light Scandinavian interiors.

Geometric shapes with subtle references to the 1950’s are another of 2015’s trends. The symmetry and simplicity go well with minimalistic interiors and create a stringent yet playful expression.
The quirky Cap Lamp has a geometric feel and comes in this intriguing midnight blue color which matches the color scale of 2015 perfectly
