Wonderland is an evolution of wanting to embrace nature in all its senses.
There is a longing towards the Nordic Shores with a strong feel of escapism. Colder climates and rougher landscapes are the new destinations where the human being has a much more difficult access to. This limitation makes it much more appreciated. Snow and ice stand for the ethereal, whereas floating icebergs are the new symbol to watch.
Inspired by this atmosphere, the winter interior trend Wonderland was born – it nourishes itself from creative vibes in arts, fashion, design.
Wonderland /Draws major inspiration from the Nordic nature and brings the feeling of nature into our lives and homes | Evokes escapism and the desire to discover the inaccessible, the undiscovered | Ethereal, sometimes intangible | Desire to liberate from the conventions and limits, it refers to our inner urge to cut off the strings that make us function in our mundane life | Elusive, frosty colors, cold whites, icy blues, dark greens -but also opposing lava reds and other volcanic hues, soft sunset colors.
To be inspired, see the Green Design Gallery’s Wonderland Collection.

The DecksTop™ Collection is the brainchild of leading-edge brand Focused Skateboard Woodworks.
The ethos behind Netherlands based Focused Skateboard Woodworks is their love of wood, especially seven-ply maple. The designers at Focused Skateboard Woodworks love the way it rides and they love the way it looks. Saying goodbye to an old skateboard is never easy. Most of us never say goodbye, just keep our old rides stocked aside. Some are broken. Some are just worn out. Others simply leave their old decks behind after collecting their new wood at skate stores. In the end, they all end-up in a dark corner of a basement, attic or warehouse.
Handcrafted from reclaimed plastics by award-winning designer Kimberly Markel, the fun and whimsical Glow Collection has been described as looking like candy, ice pops, gummy bears, and ice!
Markel's work comes from the need to create, with a desire to do it in a responsible way. Reclaimed plastics come from various sources: soda bottles, styrofoam, lunch trays, and eye glasses - all at the end of their usable lives. Unbelievable but true.
The unique makeup of the pellet/resin mixture gives the finished pieces a perfectly imperfect, organic form. These unusual, original and colorful series are often enough to elicit this sense of magic and to celebrate the experience of feeling magic in ordinary objects.

Wood Casting is a fine art furniture collection by internationally acclaimed Israely industrial designer Hilla Shamia.
The collection exhibits a unique combination between two materials, using a completely new technology to create a perfect balance between a natural resource and an industrial matter. This one-of-a-kind collection features gorgeously unique ash lines and imperfections in the wood. The incompleteness and randomness give the products their aesthetic value. Like nature, each final product is unique.
Molten aluminum is poured directly onto the wooden the surface which burns the exterior, the plank is then cut lengthwise and inserted with frame to define its final structure. The casting process is accompanied with high heat, flames and smoke. When the metal is cooled down and the mold breaks apart, the furniture piece reveals the dark border between the hot metal and wood, enabling us to observe the leakage of aluminum and the carbonized wood which is frozen in time.
The combination of cast aluminum and locally sourced natural wood preserves the natural form of a burnt tree trunk, creating an emotionally charged renewal that gives life back to its piece. Juxtaposed beautifully against the metal, these are cohesive pieces that can only be defined as fine art furniture.
