5 Furniture Trends to Try in this Year
Forget the same old resolutions; we’re already looking forward to the design trends coming in 2022. Here, we’ve compiled some of the most eye-catching design and decor trends from around the world. Keep reading to see what silhouettes and styles we’ll be seeing this year:
Curves in upholstered furniture silhouettes and case goods are making a comeback in furniture design. Whether it’s a convex curve on your sofa back or rounded legs on your sideboard, clean, smooth lines, and curvy shapes add a warm touch to any room they are in. From ultra-high-end down to more wallet-friendly vendors, almost every manufacturer incorporates arcs, curves, and soft lines in their furniture. Don’t be surprised if you see fluted or ribbed detail on artwork, boudoir pillows, and upholstery over the next year.
You’ll see more textured textiles such as tweeds, boucle, and crushed velvets in furniture pieces this year. Comfort is key, since we are spending most of our time at home. This doesn’t imply that you have to compromise on style, but furniture must be comfortable. Boucle wool, for instance, is an incredible design element that adds great texture, warmth, and coziness to any room.
In baths and kitchens, a rise in matte finishes is predicted for finish and furnishing trends. For the next few years, the most popular designs for fixtures will be less shine and more matte finishes in nickel, stainless, and pewter. The preferred finishes for touchless or motion control faucets will be brushed or matte black or stainless.
Shopping vintage isn’t only for the elderly anymore. Younger clients are looking for an alternative to catalog-purchased or mass-produced items and prefer to own pieces that represent their character. Designs these days are trending toward timeless pieces as opposed to those that go out of style quickly. Rather than buying fast furniture, clients are choosing to invest in genuine quality items that will last longer.
Escapist Artwork and Decorative Details
People will invest in more art that virtually transports them to certain destinations (escapist quality). We will see people strive to make their homes feel like a vacation destination by using decorative elements and artwork.
