Big, bold and brave, this week’s Get the Look feature is set to divide opinion with the tribal theme making its debut at The Inspiration Centre. A versatile choice that can be introduced in an array of forms, this is design like no other: are you prepared to take the plunge?
Many will bring tribal influences into the home in the form of fabrics; kilim rugs, zigzag patterns (check out UKFD’s Maestro Chevron rug) and most importantly of all, bags of colour. Cushions, curtains, throws… all can benefit from a touch of tribal influence, incorporating bold palettes to make you stand out from the rest.
This isn’t a trend for the light-hearted. Colour is to be brash and unflinching, and not necessarily restricted to the oranges, reds and browns we traditionally conjure thoughts of. If you want to include a touch of the tribal without a dramatic overhaul, why not search for accessories and fabrics that match existing fittings? As ever, Etsy is a great place to start your search for such items.
What can really underpin a tribal look is some hearty wood, and UK Flooring Direct is on hand to introduce this underfoot. Try darker shades to extenuate the authentic feel, available across the UK Flooring Direct stable in solid woods, engineered woods and laminates, so the look can be recreated in any room, or on any budget.
If going full tribal fills you with dread but you still want to embrace the trend, a subtle nod towards the theme could be the answer. We think this patterned vase and side table from Dwell introduce ‘tribal’ in its more delicate form, additions that allow the room to remain clean and modern in ambiance.
The tribal look is one that really excites us, as you can see from our mood board above! A pleasure to research and explore, ‘tribal’ brings a touch of culture to the home, this style representing a combination of vibrant hues and Aztec inspiration.
