Fitted furniture designer and manufacturer Daval Furniture has revealed that it is anticipating a surge in indoor-outdoor living spaces, as homeowners seek new design solutions, which expand the main residence and make allowances for both home and garden living.
Simon Bodsworth, MD at Daval, said: “There is steady growth in relation to well-considered property investments, which are sensitive to the needs of the 21st homeowner and contemporary lifestyle. The ‘race for green space’ during the pandemic has brought a newfound appreciation to the home and garden, with several trends now coming together like sustainable living and holistic design, which are helping to shape custom design schemes. We are seeing a growing number of alternatives to the traditional conservatory or orangery, welcoming stylistically pure indoor-outdoor spaces that can function as a home office, gym, alfresco kitchen or garden retreat to entertain guests separate from the main house.”
The company believes that the past two years have raised important considerations about sustainability, and that home interiors are now reflecting the need for individual schemes, which are designed for extra comfort and convenience. With this in mind, storage has become increasingly important, enabling homeowners to take full advantage of outside buildings, which are designed to benefit from year-round garden views and natural daylight.
James Bodsworth, design director at Daval, added: “With an emphasis on picture windows and integrated landscapes, we are seeing the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright’s organic architecture come to the fore, along with a subtle Scandinavian aesthetic that is both natural and light. Fitted furniture is a well-established and effective way to optimise space in the home, and as outside living spaces are becoming an increasingly high-value addition in the UK property market, we are primed and ready with our range of British made to order furniture.”
