As the weather heats up for Summer, Crate & Barrel – owned and operated by Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE – is setting the tone for a happy home with its latest collection, “A New Warmth.” It boasts peaceful, purposeful designs that come together in harmony as the world of interiors follows the latest style obsession: warm minimalism.

Crate & Barrel’s Spring-Summer collection comes as a breath of fresh air for the region with something new for every room. Genius, space-saving designs open up the workspace; chunky console tables make a statement in the living room; sculptural serve-wear inspires in the kitchen; and woven rugs feel great underfoot.

Shoppers looking to incorporate warm minimalism into their homes need only pick out a few key pieces as the trend focuses on choosing items to love, not to fill the space. Exclusive to Crate & Barrel, the 70’s-inspired Merrick swivel chair is perfect for this, as it adds a pop of colour and attitude without all the clutter.

Furniture is transformed into art with details that combine function and beauty. For a space that feels well-loved and well lived in, natural fibres, grass-cloth coverings and super soft accent chairs add texture and depth for enhanced breathability. The colour palette, too, proves that neutrals go well beyond white with sun-washed shades and modern pastels.
