If you were to think about materials which seem to stay forever modern, then one of them should be, no doubt about it, denim. Quite versatile in both texture and color, denim can be an inspiring material for fashion design as well as for interior design.
Denim can complement perfectly both an open and luminous interior as well as a more narrow and rather dark space. Although its cold color seems to fit better a masculine “landscape”, dominated by raw balance and detachment, depending on how it is integrated within the given space it can also be the central point of a warm and hospitable environment.
This material stands as one of the most notorious symbols of youth, but not of a limited time confined youth but of the perpetual young spirit which might characterize some people throughout their entire life. This is why denim can be perceived as one of the classical symbols of modernity, thus displaying, if properly used, both a sense of classical balance and significance, as well as a sense of innovation and freshness.
Due to all its features, denim can become a reliable ally in building interior design concepts to suit a variety of tastes and preferences. It can be sober and subtle, welcoming and warm, playful and non-conventional or dramatic, controversial, elegant and even minimalist. The denim itself can inspire many possibilities and scenarios, but it is due to the context around it to highlight the particularly relevant characteristics necessary to create a coherent image.
Denim can successfully dress a playful reading or workstation, it can establish focus points within a living room, it can create a relaxing environment suited for rest in the bedroom and it can even set the tone for a modern kitchen.
Being easy to find and not very expensive, this material can be used as primary source for creative DIY projects. In this respect it can be used to cover furniture, to create storing space solutions, to design non-conventional quilts, pillow cases or rugs and even to put together small art projects.
