Who doesn’t love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? There is so much to love, but for now, we’re paying tribute to the Emerald Isle by showcasing our love for all things green. While the hue in all its many shades symbolizes renewal, we find products, spaces, and materials outfitted in the vibrant color both festive and refreshing. See below for some of the designs that leave us feeling green with envy.
We can’t really share our love for all things green without first focusing on two of our favorite verdant finishes: Emerald and Sage. These two eye-catching shades of green are available on our large array of full-sized and indoor/outdoor undercounter units. While Emerald is said to promote wellbeing, balance, and harmony, Sage can add a bit of spice to any design scheme while also serving to infuse spaces with a refreshing, peaceful ambiance through its inherent connection to nature. In conclusion? They look great in a multitude of environments and on all our various units, including our Dual Zone Wine Column; Beverage Dispenser; Clear Ice Machine; Beverage Column.
Pittsburgh-based designer Meghan McDermott of Blue and Blanc Design, LLC. added warmth and sophistication to a client’s airy pool house kitchen by opting for our stylish yet functional 30” beverage center in Emerald. Gold hardware complements the unit and gold touches were incorporated throughout the space for added polish. “It was the perfect way to break up all the black and white,” the designer remarks. “Some clients want to stay on the safe side, but they were both like ‘YES’” when it came to the alluring shade.
Italian manufacturers continue to produce some of the most gorgeous tiles in shades of green. On one end of the spectrum, companies are producing show-stopping porcelain slabs featuring saturated colors, giant palms, and exotic stones like green onyx and Patagonia green marble. On the other end, brands are taking a more subtle approach, offering large- and small-format tiles in muted shades of green and subtle textures like Moroccan plaster. We love them all!
Moroso recently unveiled the first stage of Design by Nature—a research project by Swedish designers Anna Lindgren and Sofia Lagerkvist of Front that explores the therapeutic effect of spending time in nature. The project includes furniture, objects, and textiles informed by natural phenomena. To create the Wilderness sofa, the designers scanned areas of forest and other places in the wild and then implemented digital weaving techniques to create textiles that mimic the texture, details, and the colors, depth, and shadows of the scans. Oh my Guinness!
Room & Board Business Interior’s 132” Astaire Modular sofa in Banks Moss and Asher Ottoman’s in Declan Moss form an eye-catching combination in differing shades of green. Available in various sizes, the Astaire sofa’s sweeping curves include a plush velvet seat and can be configured in a multitude of ways. Meanwhile the boucle-covered ottoman serves triple duty as a coffee table, extra seating, or as a footrest.
Patrick Norguet’s Flar design for Lodes consists of a mouth-blown, billowing glass shade with an LED filament bulb that disperses a warm, vibrating glow. Its steel, laser-cut based blooms like a flower, leading to its striking glass form. The gorgeous design is available in turquoise or honey—which also features hints of green—and with a base in either champagne or terra. Fun fact? The name was inspired by the French word ‘flamboiement’, which signifies an intense blaze or burst of light.
