1. Décor x National Trust Collection
The British flooring manufacturer has expanded the artisan-style Décor LVT collection with its first collaboration with the National Trust. The range is inspired by historic designs and patterns found at the charity’s properties. The three new designs feature ten colourways, all selected from the premium Signature collection with a 1mm wear layer.
2. Modern Flock
by Erica Wakerly
This newly launched flocked wallpaper collection combines traditional processes with a modern aesthetic. The four designs have been created with homes, hotels, restaurants and retail spaces in mind, each showcasing a lightness that contrasts the rich, abundant feel of traditionally flocked damask designs that date back to the 17th-Century.

Incredibly thin and light, this table draws inspiration from origami, made from a single 1mm metal sheet that is folded to create a tabletop that is rigid and strong. Finished in black, white or red VOC-free painted steel, the top pairs with metal or wooden leg options. The table was presented along other collections as part of Arper’s newly restyled showroom during LDF.
4. Grade Collection
by Jonas Wagell for L. Ercolani
This soft seating collection brings warmth and comfort into its surrounding environment thanks to its understated design elegance. The range comprises a three-seater sofa, a two-seater sofa and a chair. The solid ash underframe is available in eight distinct finishes and the upholstery is offered in a variety of harmonious textiles, leathers and colour palettes.
5. SpektroLED Tilt
Knightsbridge’s SpektroLED lighting range offers wattage, colour temperature and bezel choices, and now the system comes in both fixed and tilt versions. The new tilt option allows for customisation and personalisation of lighting design without resorting to multiple lamp types. Tilt also offers a choice of two wattages – 5W and 8W – five colour temperatures (CCTs), and five bezel finishes.
6. Surestep Fast Fit
In response to growing demand for flooring solutions that can be installed quickly with minimal disruption, Forbo has launched a brand new adhesive free, HSE compliant safety flooring range. Designed for demanding commercial environments, where a quick turnaround and minimal disruption is required, but where slip resistance is also a priority.
7. Dimensional Connections
by Woven Image
Pico is the new finish for the Dimensional Connection range, a collection inspired by Modern Japonisme. Moving towards more tactile surfaces and textures, the panels meld cutting edge design with sustainability and performance. Pico features a growing trend for vertical linework to sit along Zen, Ion and Gem which are also in the collection.
by RAK Ceramics
In collaboration with Patrick Norguet this new range of washbasins, bathtubs and toilet bowls offers a stylish solution for everyday bathroom use. Available in matt and glossy finishes, the collection works with RAK Ceramics’ bathroom fittings and RAK-Joy Uno mirrors.

This accessory system features a horizontal upholstered bar inspired by the Shaker peg rail, used to hang a range of lifestyle accessories. Available in four Kvadrat Vidar colours – off-white, pink, green and black – the system has 26 matching colour accessories, including a key chain, cap, shopping bags, soft woollen throws and cushions.
10. Doric Coffee Tables
This stone table collection’s name is taken from the Doric order of ancient Greek – and later Roman – architecture. It is available in two types of natural stone, each with its own distinctive colour scheme: The travertine version is a nuanced Neutral White; whereas the limestone is a very striking Electric Gray, which has a more dramatic pattern. Each table pattern is unique.
