Innovative designs featuring luxurious natural materials took centre stage at Libra’s bi-annual open week this month, as the brand launched over 400 new pieces.

The trend for high-end natural materials played out across Libra’s latest collections, with marble, metals, stoneware and glass featuring prominently across larger pieces of furniture, as well as in accessories and lighting. 

Visitors were also introduced to two new themes, Elemental and Urbanite, both of which play into the demand for luxurious designs that take their cue from the natural world.  

MD Paul McLaughlin says: “Consumers are increasingly looking for homewares and accessories that connect us back to nature, and you can find this trend reflected in our latest collections. Not only do luxurious natural materials form the basis for many of our new designs, we’ve also drawn inspiration from a soft, earthy colour palette throughout. 

“Product personalisation is another key trend, and we’ve responded to this through collections such as Chancery. Part of our new Urbanite theme, these dining and occasional tables come with either a dark wood or polished natural marble top.

“Refreshingly, what these themes both tie into is a bigger consumer shift towards product longevity, championing considered, long-term purchases and the use of sustainable natural resources.”
