Furniture trends tend to shift more slowly than things like colors, decor, and more. But, they casually and effectively do change over the years. While some pieces will remain timeless, others will eventually fall out of fashion. Even still, some will fall away and come back. So, how can you stay on trend with your own home furniture? Know what to look for in upcoming trends, and think about how they’ll work for your home in the long run.
In the next year or so, there are several upcoming trends to look out for. One of the most prominent will be a sort of ‘glamourous’ feel to things. People want to feel as though they’re surrounded in luxury. Look for high-end design at affordable prices when furniture starts to follow this trend. Metallics, and sleek black modernism will also come into play. This tends to go hand in hand with the idea of luxury. Many people believe that things like clean lines and darker colors add a sense of minimalistic luxury to any home.
Also on trend in the next year is a style that has continued to grow in recent years, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon: Shabby chic. The rustic, distressed, farmhouse way of decorating your home has blossomed in popularity over the past few years, and furniture manufacturers are taking notice. Look for more and more brand new furniture to have a distressed or weathered look. It can provide a fine balance between something new having a more homey, comfortable touch. If you’re not ready to fully embrace the distressed trend, a few rustic accent pieces can work well in almost any room.
While these upcoming trends couldn’t be more opposite, they both are likely to show an increase in popularity over the upcoming year or two. Remember, your style and taste should reflect your personality, and the feeling you want people to have when they walk into your home.
