Danish design company Ferm Living's latest homeware collection is part of a growing movement in favor of subtle and understated design, eschewing the gaudy and oversized homeware design schemes of prior decades.

Aptly dubbed 'Subtle Dwelling, this homeware collection shows a great sensitivity of the designers to the impact of texture and color contrasts on the look of a home. The collection includes tabletop and chair collections that feature simple lines and functional shapes, and stand out due to simplistic beauty rather than over-the-top design cues. Some of the highlights include the metal-textured Haze cabinet and the modular Collect lamp system.

Ultimately, the Subtle Dwelling homeware collection focuses on intelligent use of simple shapes and primary colors, and speaks to the power of understated design to lend character to any home.
