The holidays will be here before you know it, so now is the time to get a head start on your shopping. We have complied our annual Gift Guide to take the guesswork out of giving really great and meaningful presents.
When it comes to finding that special something for the people you care about, we know that quality is an important consideration. We are proud to carry brands that deliver on both incredible style and innovative design. Avoid the hectic stores and shop from the comfort of home with Modern Karibou.
Keeping up with the latest trends can be incredibly time consuming. We've compiled our favourite picks to reflect this summer's fashions so you can just kick back and be stylish.
We love the restraint of furniture and accessories made out of metal, with simple legs and a cool, industrial feel. Versatile furniture pieces are popular at the moment, like benches that double as coffee tables and smaller scale lounges or daybeds that work in any sized space. Lighting follows organic influences and fits seamlessly into modern interiors. Patterns for wallpaper and textiles are rooted in nature and come in neutral colours.
The emphasis on calm, cool and natural is the perfect inspiration for your interior design. Create a look that is sure to soothe and help you beat the heat.

It is always fun to follow current styles, especially when they are colourful. Brightly painted walls are showing up more and more in modern interiors that would typically be white. This is a trend that we are totally on board with! Paint the entire room for maximum interest, or opt for a feature wall.
Still too much commitment? Have no fear. Some designers are creating a wainscotting effect by only painting the lower portion of walls, while others are painting colour blocks in the middle of white walls.

Using marble in interior design is incredibly on trend at the moment. The word marble is derived from Greek words meaning either 'crystalline rock, shining stone' or 'to flash, sparkle, gleam'. We believe that adding some marble details in your home will make your place stand out and shine.
Generally, marble makes its way into bathrooms and kitchens in the form of countertops and tiles. We love using marble in this fairly permanent way. It adds a glamourous natural detail that is absolutely gorgeous.
If you want to incorporate this trend without the commitment, we have a design solution just for you. Our marble inspired furniture, wallpaper and accessories will keep your place looking fresh. Check them out below.
Having the day off on the third Monday in February is a wonderful idea. Busy people can take time out of their schedules to be with those that are nearest and dearest. Perhaps the idea of having to set aside a day to spend with your family may seem unnecessary, but it is amazing how hard it can be to find time to just enjoy each other's company.
In honour of Family Day we have decided to showcase some rooms that are well-deisgned, yet allow the entire to family to congregate and relax together. These spaces prove that living with kids and having a refined space can coexist in harmony. After all, as much as our homes showcase our great taste, they are primarily a place for living.
This kitchen is completely on trend with a black faucet and lacquered surfaces, yet the area rug would be a wonderful place for a toddler to hang out while mom and dad are making dinner.
The modern sofa and coffee table in this living room are well-designed, but there is nothing too precious for kids. A mix of throw pillows makes the space seem more casual and fun.
One would hardly notice that this dining room is perfect for accommodating even the tiniest of family members. The adjustable highchair blends in seamlessly with the eclectic mix of modern dining chairs.
The open floor plan in this room offers something for everybody. People can cook and chat in the kitchen, while others work on homework at the table and lounge on the sofa.
Although this living room may not have been designed around family living, we think it is an ideal space for everyone. The super soft carpet, low profile table and cuddle-worthly seating make it a great room.
