Matt Phillips, head of UK operations at Rotpunkt, has revealed he believes 2023 represents a significant moment for the market in terms of consumer needs. “As we continue to navigate the global economy, one thing remains clear: the home represents the ‘centre of life’ for many," he said.
He continued: "In fact, we are experiencing an exciting era of conscious interior design where ergonomic, sustainable product solutions are catering to the wellness lifestyle and providing the UK homeowner with a more positive, self-serving home environment. Now, the market is primed to deliver even more transparency on the benefits of quality raw materials, ethical production, and carbon off-setting, given our research continues to show that concerns about sustainability resonate at every price-point.”
While Rotpunkt's climate-friendly initiatives aim to meet consumer concerns about the environment, Phillips said the company's latest products are designed to cater for multipurpose spaces. Open-plan living may continue to dictate ground-floor layouts, he added, but there is now a new focus the level of integration that can be achieved in the kitchen, home office, laundry, and bedroom space.
"With hybrid work patterns, multigenerational households, and a focus on eco ergonomics, the latest furniture designs in 2023 are built for multi-purpose, presenting a cross-section of styles, shapes, and materials, which are serving more than one room in the home," he said.
