The time has come for the fifth and final installment of our design trends series. We’ve loved seeing the interior design world through the eyes of our three experts, and for the final question it seemed only right to ask them about their predictions for the future.

Any up and coming interior designers to watch out for in 2016?

Sian Astley

Gosh, I have no idea, I’m far to busy concentrating on my own stuff to be checking what other Interior designers are doing!

We’re very excited about Susi Bellamy who makes fabulous homewares. We’ll be putting lots of her stuff into homes throughout the year. It’s very contemporary, instantly recognisable and wonderfully versitile.

I have to say myself! I have a few small projects planned so far and with such a fantastic year behind me, I am really hoping to achieve even more this year!

Two design studios that I have my eye on however, ones that will achieve even more success this year are Studio Mode in Bulgaria, incredible modern designs and 1508 in London with their incredible luxurious designs.
