High-shine and lacquered surfaces are an emerging trend in the home to add a statement look to interiors. This trend is quite the contrast to matte surfaces generally associated with minimalism. One of the drivers of this trend is nostalgia, as designers bring it back to life with bold colours. Gloss is no longer just for furniture and décor; it’s being used on walls and ceilings to change the perception of the room by reflecting light in different ways while adding dimension to the space.

This glossy look fits in a wide range of styles depending on how it is implemented and can be softened with matte and natural fibers to create a balanced look.
