Gold Rush

Metallic has been the focus for designers since several seasons. So far, the use of metal optics has been limited mainly to design accessories, but today, any kind of furniture could be enhanced with metal optics. Whether gold, rose gold, silver or bronze – metallic is in vogue. Completely new are now also matte metal looks. Chiyoda has developed a new innovative decor especially for this look: UNICO. Unique as its name suggests, UNICO combines matte metallic effects with a creative spatula structure! Spatula optics are well known when it comes to concrete looks, mostly these structures give a rather rough touch… read more

Concrete reloaded

Concrete has been for some seasons the material and surface for modern design interiors. Concrete gives a cool clear look, perfectly for all contemporary interior decoration. Concrete has become an almost “classic” material in the design world. Our Design Team at Chiyoda was searching for a way to make concrete look different. When our designers combined free artistic brushstrokes with an authentic concrete structure they created a new look for concrete surfaces – the décor “Brush”. “Brush” creates a stunning artistic effect for any kind of interior surface like furniture, kitchen, wall panels and flooring. “Brush” up your interior products!… read more

Opposites attract

Who said distressed optics are perfect for country interior? It was true for the past few years but now a brand-new trend is just entering the interior design world. “Opposites attract”- the combination of aged distressed surfaces with ultra-modern looks. Naama Agassi a designer from Tel Aviv is creating design objects which capture this trend. Our décor Aiko is perfect for “Opposites attract” – it looks like a wooden board which has been painted over and over again through many decades. You just have to place this décor on a furniture or any other surface and combine it with an… read more

Marble Mania

Marble optics are more in trend than ever! Several design fair events of 2017 like Milan Furniture Show, Maison&Objet in Paris and the world’s biggest tile fair Cersaie in Bologna focused on marble. Marble fits perfectly to that mid-century style which we all love so much. Design Classics from the 50ies and 60ies go along perfectly with any kind of marble. That’s why we developed “Brinjar” a beautiful marble décor which brings class, modernity and exclusiveness to any kind of surface in interior design. read more

LINK-UP

When it comes to today’s digital age, modern lifestyle trends really are speaking the right language. Even trends that might initially appear to be a deliberate shift away from the phenomena of this era would hardly be conceivable in their current form without the success of the Internet. With this in mind, “LINK-UP” is the all-encompassing motto that unites each and every one of these trends. As much of a paradox as it may sound, in fact, even those who want to live offline first have to get online to be able to then switch off. Thanks to the latest… read more

Automaton

“automaton” is the term for a machine that can move and do things without being controlled by somebody. “automaton” represents the furnishing style that tries to create a face for the digital world and its achievements. We live in an age in which ever more complex processes are being stripped right back down to 0 and 1 so that they can then be controlled by computers. Going forward, it would seem that people will no longer be the ones subject to moral and emotional judgements. This is down to the fact that computerised machines are becoming more human by the… read more

Bioplanet

“bioplanet” describes how – optimised with the possibilities of the digital age – today’s hot trend of sustainability is reflected in residential interior design. The subjects of sustainability and environmental protection are huge trends that have been affecting not only the food industry, but also the clothing and furnishing sectors for many years. Nevertheless, these trends have changed over time to the point where they have long since reached the mainstream in various different forms. Even the technological innovations of the digital era in particular have not left these trends unaffected. ”bioplanet” therefore refers to the most up-to-date manifestation of… read more

Instinct

For anyone feeling as though life in the digital age is just too safe, state-of-the-art software can allow them to reach the other side of the digital firewall. This means getting a taste of where life’s true challenges – i.e. in reality rather than on the screen – can be experienced and mastered, so that they can then share their own confident attitude and performance on the network. The ideal interior design trend for people like this is “instinct”, whose materials, surfaces and finishing touches offer a piece of the wild unknown within their own four walls. We live in… read more
