One of the hot trends these days is a “modern organic” look in the interior of the home. This style not only seeks to create a strong contemporary aesthetic, but also conveys respect for the environment and an astute sense of design.
"A huge trend in the interior design world right now is to incorporate accessories and sustainable furnishings that are made of natural materials or reclaimed elements,” said Robin Bond of Robin Bond Interiors, located at 9600 Escarpment Blvd., #745, in Austin. “You can spot this trend across design styles including traditional, transitional, contemporary and modern.
“When I think ‘organic modern,’ I think of products with clean lines, steel or alloy metals combined with reclaimed wood or stained concrete,” Bond said. “Clients seeking ‘organic’ design also crave sustainable decor that comes from companies that operate honestly and responsibly in accordance with environment.”
Bond not only takes into account the look of the materials she chooses in her design, but also looks for longevity and impact on the environment over the long haul.
“Over the past decade, I have witnessed a transition toward organic and responsible design in all aspects of our industry, from manufacturers to logistics to the products themselves,” Bond said. “We are all headed in a more eco-friendly and sustainable direction. Natural beauty in design is the added benefit!"
