Are you decorating or re-decorating your home? Then you need to get in touch with the latest furniture trends to make sure that your space is beautiful, up to date and functional.
Outdoor-type furniture for the indoors
Wickerwork, lattice work, aged metals and heavy wooden furniture are in this season. This doesn’t exclusively mean pieces of furniture that can pass up for garden furniture but also applies for items that appear to have been left outside. Faded wood and aged metals have a rustic appeal that will work great with other classic pieces to create a unique design. Look for pieces made with outdoorsy materials but are designed for indoor comfort for the best results.
High backed upholstered chairs, polished surfaces and shiny neutrals create a glamorous look. For 2014, pieces of furniture that spell glamour and lavishness will be ideal to make a bold design statement. While the trend is not exactly something completely new, the styles and the shapes of pieces along with the prints and colors have seen some considerable change.
Custom, recycled and up-cycled items are in
Adding pieces that are completely unique into your interiors will make the design stand out. While professional customized items may be exceptionally expensive, a special statement piece or a bold accent will be worth the price. If you don’t feel like splurging, you can always look at pieces that have been crafted from unconventional recycled items such as wooden pellets and wine barrels.
Ethnic pieces are a favorite for 2014
Ethnic prints, ethnic designs and ethnic shapes are all very popular this fall. If you are to walk into a furniture store, you are bound to find at least a few pieces that depict different cultures and ethnicities. These pieces will often work as style statements. The perfect chair, table or cupboard can be mixed and matched easily with the rest of your décor to create a unique look with a dash of ethnic elegance.
Metallic fabrics are perfect for a design statement
Metallic leather upholstery and metallic cushions are ideal to create an almost avant garde look in just about any room. The key is to not go overboard and to choose your pieces with care. A few metallic cushions or a single metallic leather ottoman would work great in a small space. For larger spaces, you can experiment with more pieces without the fear of overcrowding.
Eco–friendly furniture is great in many ways
Furniture made from recycled or up-cycled materials are affordable and beautiful while being friendly to the environment. Additionally, you can look for pieces made from industrial timber that have been made into everyday items.
Multi-functional pieces work in all types of rooms
Multi-functional pieces are ideal for small spaces. Coffee tables that double up as dinner tables, ottomans with hidden storage space and sofa beds are a great way to add a unique dash of elegance to your space while saving space at the same time. Getting several uses out of the price of one piece is only the cherry on top!
