In 2022, we launched our Sage finish. The restorative gray/green hue just happened to be simultaneously trending across the globe that year as well. Paint titans Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore each even had shades of sage as their Colors of the Year—Evergreen Fog for the former and October Mist 1494 for the latter—and the color continues to be extremely popular. We’ve seen splashes of sage in kitchens, appliances, bathrooms, and so much more. Its refreshing traits tend to inspire creativity and a connection to nature—two big pluses when it comes to design. Below, we’ve called out some of our favorite new products in the hue.
Ceramics of Italy, is a go-to for exceptional Italian tiles. The Macchia Mediterranea collection of handmade tiles were designed by Atelier Cerasarda—a brand known for carrying the “ceramics of the Emerald Coast,” in reference to Sardinia—and are showcased in a striking sage-like hue. Although a bit darker in color, Cerdomus’ Crete in Rame is equally as appealing—and it comes in nine sizes. Meanwhile, Appiani’s Pastelli collection offers the perfect shade of Sage—its the Ruscello colorway on porcelain stoneware—designed to look and function perfectly both indoors and out.
There are few things we love more than lighting designs to add a pop of color. The Scandinavian-inspired Grain Pendant Light by Jens Fager for Mutto keeps things minimal yet stylish. Its bell-shaped shade is made of texturized bamboo and other eco-friendly materials while the Type 80 Wall light by Sir Kenneth Grange for Anglepoise also features a striking minimalist profile. Its shade features a slight opening to let a little light escape for one cool design feature. Both fixtures are available through Lumens.
Rove Concepts’ plush velvet Noah Sofa exudes style and comfort. Its Moonstone colorway offers the perfect pop of color without being overpowering. While it also comes in a slightly darker version in Suede—with a colorway actually specified as Sage—there is something we love about the velvet adaptation.
