The Purge

As we head into the second full week of the year, we find everything is getting back into the swing of things. You go back to work, you hit up the gym and yet you still find yourself irritated by the mess the holidays has left you. Too many presents, not so much room.

Some have been carried over from the past year and tweaked to bring a fresh look to it, while others have always been there but not really showcased to show their true potential. 2015 delivered natural elements and a unique look on details. Sustainability was the main focus and will continue to be for 2016, it will be seen through materials, textiles and electronics.
