Modieus kicked off 2022 looking at the top three rug and interior design trends forecasted for 2022. It’s been an interesting journey to see these trends come to life in both residential and commercial interiors through its Allusion Collection, which developed a design journey through time, giving us two different perspectives. From 70’s retro fused with boho style, to the 90’s street art movement and awareness of biophilia, the design team at Modieus are driven by colour, and with over 1400 shades to select from, designers can be confident in finding the right combination for any project.
Launched in June, the new Boutique Collection by Modieus, is as luxurious as it is individual. True to its name, the collection drives forward the new expectations of ‘bespoke’; designs are flexible, adaptable and over time have the potential to become the new classics. Designs can be manufactured as broadloom, rugs or tiles. The Boutique Collection was the first to use enhanced customisation techniques, allowing Modieus to elevate the tactile nature of woven Axminster carpet with a 3D effect created through delicate hand carved details. This along with a specialist knowledge in combining mixed yarns took Modieus on a journey that would take Axminster carpets to a new level.
The launch of the Impressions Collection has pushed the boundaries of what can be achieved with Axminster carpet. Modius have taken a new approach to designing, weaving, and finishing Axminster carpets. This, combined with the curated inspiration of each capsule makes it a noteworthy addition to their portfolio.
Earlier this year Hotel Designs caught up with Xander Okhuizen, Founder of Modieus. Like the rest of the world, Australia had seen the impact of climate change through the devastating impact of bush fires and floods on their natural environment. Picking up the environmental baton, Okhuizen announced that Modieus had chosen to support the work of Trillion Trees Australia, by planting one tree for every 10 square metres sold. Trillion Trees is a Not-for-Profit tree planting organisation based in Western Australia. They have planted over 15 million trees, and Modieus are thrilled to support their mission to reach a trillion.
It’s not often we see a Prime Minister open a hospitality venue, but Australia’s Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese officially opened Petersham RSL’s new clubhouse in Sydney, delighting patrons and everyone who had worked on the project. From a new restaurant, day spa, indoor and outdoor gaming areas, a café, bistro, pub, tab, function centre, corporate offices, members car park arrival areas, and all new branding. The result is a customer experience akin to a luxury resort, the only difference being that it is in a suburban location, serving a local community.
Despite the year drawing in, the Modieus design team are already focussed on the 2023 Trends Collection to be released in the new year.
