What’s the most important step when decorating your house? Picking out the perfect pieces of furniture that are functional, stylish and represent your own personal flair for design. To help you get started, here are some furniture trends that you are bound to fall for! These ideas will inspire you regardless of whether you are furnishing a new house, re-doing your current interior design choices, or simply investing in a few additional pieces to your current set of furniture.
Turn Your Place Inside Out!
One trend on the horizon that has been increasingly popular over the last couple of years is putting outdoor furniture in indoor living spaces. An example would be sophisticated wicker chairs and tables, which are often reserved for classy patio areas, being used to furnish a living room instead!
Aside from the fact that they tend to be aesthetically pleasing, outdoor furniture also tends to be extremely durable (due to being made for weathering all different conditions), are often less expensive, and you can always shift it back outside if you change your mind or want to shift up your decor again at some point!
Pull Focus With Your Dining Table
Another growing trend is to make your dining table a statement piece of furniture, since it is one that is used often and is almost always involved when entertaining. This also gives you the freedom to work within your style, whether that be vintage, metallic or earthy. It may also result in the added bonus of your dining furniture choice sparking a dinner conversation topic.
Dining tables, which tend to be larger and more regularly used pieces of furniture, are often underestimated in terms of their powerful position within your interior decor. Therefore, this is one area you can go all out when its comes to glitz, glamour and the most extravagant aspects of your personal style.
Go Green In More Ways Than One
Being environmentally friendly in all ways, even your furniture choices, has become the latest craze. So why not catch on to a current trend and help the Earth simultaneously? This involves taking a closer look at bamboo, cork (which is very ‘in’ as of late!) and recycled materials when it comes to making purchasing choices.
In terms of colour, shades of dark green have become the new must-have, so you can kill two trends with one stone, and go green in more ways than one. Rather than sticking to conventional blacks, whites, and navy blues, experiment with colour choices. Darker greens are known to add a richness to your surrounding, and bring about an atmosphere that feels connected to nature. But if green isn’t your style, experiment with other colours you have never used much before, to add a ‘pop’ to your interior decor!
