But it won't be the only eco-aware show in town. Another material pressing all the right environmental buttons is the new terracotta. Created from baked clay, Thompson describes it as "modern, layful and hard-wearing". Also getting a modern makeover is terrazzo, traditionally composed of waste chips of marble in cement, which has been updated with additional aggregates such as granite, quartz and glass. Using up all those leftovers gives it strong eco credentials as well as visual interest. Embracing the burgeoning trend towards texture, timber is becoming a hero material again, and not just for floors and furniture. Wood is popping up on ceilings and as wall cladding, and re-emerging in kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. Wood tones are growing darker, towards a warmer palette that chimes with the fashion for all things mid- 20th-century. This works well with the new, deep wall colours to create a cosy effect.
