From Cocooning to Hiving

The well-known Faith Popcorn invented the word ” cocooning ” to designate the trend from the 80 ‘s to isolate ourselves from the outside world and design the house as a refuge. This concept which represented a need for security and self-esteem in a changing society  is now being replaced since the years 2000’s by the “Hiving” trend .

Hiving still imply a life at home , but unlike pampering and isolate ourselves , this new motto implies opening up to the world and conviviality . This is an opportunity to share one’s home by inviting friends , cooking and even working there.

Our home decoration is progressively taking a shift with common rooms getting larger. The living room becomes a common lounge and dining room which then form a large & friendly room full of natural candle lights and welcoming home fragrances. The kitchen becomes a living place that opens up into the living room with attractive design and beautiful accessories.

Confident that our selection featured on will  make your home a ” hive.  It is a nice way  to approach the world and set foot in the stirrup of this fall!
