As odd as it might sound, mushrooms are all the rave right now, and have been for a short while, with no sign of slowing down. They have been sprouting up everywhere, from jewellery and trippy t-shirts in terms of fashion, but also inspiring our homes, with mushroom mugs, cremini-shaped desk lamps, stools and inspired wallcoverings.
In conjunction with the return of the 70’s, there’s an implied grooviness to the mushroom trend, and a nod to many of the psychedelic-esque trends from the 60’s and 70’s. But there is more to this than simply aesthetic. Sure, mushrooms are serving well in the world of design, but they’re also soaring into further popularity in not only the wellness world, with heaps of immunity-boosting properties, but also the world of sustainability and climate change with the likes of mushroom leather!
Mushroom powders and extracts have become increasingly popular amongst wellness enthusiasts, rightly so considering mushrooms have been used by almost every ancient civilization around the world. Different blends of mushroom powder carry a number of health benefits such as being anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and high in antioxidants and can be added to tea, coffee and smoothies for improved energy levels, sleep and digestion.
So keep an eye out for any funghi featuring in our designs, and here’s to mushrooms and all their goodness.
