5 Furniture Trends to Note

Redecorating your house this summer and looking for some design inspiration? Here are 5 furniture and interior design trends to watch.


1. Vintage



Curating and displaying vintage pieces in your home is a great way to show some personality. Touches can range from the statement-making (go luxe with a chandelier in the dining room) to the subtle (try a vintage gold-leafed frame for your wall-art or a quirky wooden cabinet). Check out your local thrift store or Etsy for one-of-a-kind items to breathe new life into your home.


2. Woods & Greens

Rustic looks are popular choices for homeowners looking to add an earthy, casual feel to their spaces. Light-toned woods like oak make great durable pieces; and don’t forget to decorate with planters and other greens.


3. Environmentally Friendly Furniture

“Eco-friendly” is the name of the game in the 21st century. Individuals can look to wooden furniture for a design that’s timeless and easy on the environment. For a home that’s truly sustainable, be sure to select furniture crafted from recycled timber or from a sustainable source.


4. Multi Functional Furniture

Multi-functional pieces are great space-savers, particularly for smaller homes. Turn your coffee table into a storage space, or an armchair into a work desk – these nifty transformers will make your home a practical, habitable place to live in.


5. Custom-Made Furniture

Homeowners looking to add a personal touch to their living spaces are increasingly turning to custom-made furniture. These don’t have to be pricey; there are plenty of options available for customers looking for affordable, custom-made furniture. In addition to owning a piece of furniture that’s uniquely yours, going bespoke also offers you the flexibility of creating a product that matches your needs precisely: that tight nook of yours can now be home to a shorter-than-usual bookshelf, for example. Be sure to have the right measurements and some pictures of your desired look on hand when approaching your local workshop.
