Old Meets New
The trend that once fell out of favour has now been resurrected into popularity. Some designers specialize in breathing life into old-fashioned furniture with carvings of a long-vanished era of trends. ‘Old meets New’ is a promising trend that combines rough, exposed aesthetic materials with cutting-edge technology. This trend includes combinations of these features:
- Weathered and antique textures

- Glass and metals instead of dead wall partitions
- Modern furniture with antique materials
Plain, old, single-solid colors are now long gone. Abstract geometric forms and evocative patterns have barged into workstation walls, lobbies, hallways, conference rooms, and even restrooms of offices globally. Abstract design patterns encroach design structures like the ceiling, flooring, beams, etc. created with materials like veneer, metal frames, marble, ceramic tiles, etc. Abstract patterns could form illustrated artworks as well.
