As we move into 2020, we are witnessing a new era of interior and furniture design. The resurgence of historic styles with modern styles is one of the biggest trends we will see this year. This trend is based on the idea of bringing more character to the home. In addition, we will also see a shift toward sustainable materials and eco-conscious options in furniture designs.
Blue is taking center stage this year with Pantone declaring “classic blue” as the color of the year and Sherwin Williams naming “naval blue” the paint color of the year. This vibrant hue is perfect for creating an eye-catching accent wall or incorporating into large pieces of furniture such as sofas and beds. In addition, you will also find these elegant hues in pillows, vases and area rugs to add a pop of color throughout the room.
Velvet is making a big impact in fashion this year and will continue to be popular as a furniture material in 2020. This luxurious fabric creates an elegant and sophisticated feel in any room. You will find velvet in a wide range of colors from pastels to deep rich shades. In addition, you will see a variety of tufted velvet styles and patterns.
We are also seeing a return to natural materials in furniture design with rattan, rope and caning making a comeback. These textures create a casual and relaxed atmosphere in the home and can be mixed with other furniture materials to create a unique look.
Lastly, you will see more styles of wooden furniture in the home this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and people seeking out ways to be healthy at home. This health and wellness trend has led to the creation of new furniture products that focus on exercise, stretching and balance. One of the best examples of this is Hannah Fink’s ‘The Groove’ workout bench which provides a way to get a full body workout at home.
Furniture with multiple uses is also becoming increasingly popular. Tables that double as storage, beds that serve as dressers and more are helping to reduce clutter and make the most of limited space. This trend will continue into 2021 with furniture designed to help you stay productive and organized at home.
Neutrals are always in style but this year they will have a more earthy tone. Warm neutrals like gray, sage and pastel pink are ideal for the walls of a tranquil living space but also work well on furniture pieces such as sofas and side tables. In addition, you will see more brown and tan tones that bring an organic feeling to the room.
This year you will also see a return to gold in home décor. This is a great way to bring in an updated traditional or modern look to your space. You will see this trend in light fixtures, coffee tables and even on the legs of a rattan sofa.
