The New Year comes with all things new and refreshing! It’s the time to update and upgrade. While you’re busy making resolutions and bucket lists for yourself, don’t forget about your house! Let’s look at the top furniture trends for the year 2017 so your home can reflect the same energy as you in the New Year!
- Vintage Furniture
Vintage furniture will always be trendy. But the challenge is to incorporate vintage pieces to go with your existing décor correctly, or you can always choose to go for a full remodel, depending on your needs. If you’re looking for a whole new look, you can remodel your space to reflect any theme of your preference. It could be classic chic. Or weathered and rustic, the possibilities are endless. Just add vintage accents to your existing décor for a more personalized vibe if you don’t want to go for a full remodel.
Pro Tip – Keep it neutral to ensure it can blend with any style through the years!
This year Pantone announced ‘Greenery’ as the color of the year for its rejuvenating and revitalizing effect. And the beauty of this color is how natural it is, making it easily adaptable to any living space. You can add this shade to your room through furniture, upholstery and/or visual pieces. Or, go “au naturale” by adding more flora to your space and giving it a fresher feel.
- Dramatic Fabrics
Use materials that take inspiration from the 70s and the 80s like velvet and leather to add more drama to your interiors while staying in line with the vintage art-deco inspired trend. Velvet adds a whimsical aura to the room and is incredibly versatile if used correctly. You can fashion bedcovers, curtains out of it or simply use it as upholstery. And if you want to really experiment with textures, you can even combine velvet with faux leather for a more exquisite look.
- Mix it up with Metals
The home décor scene has been blowing up since the introduction of metallic inspired décor. Initially gold, rose gold and silver were the most commonly seen colors, but other colors like polished nickel, matte black as well as various oxidized and antique finishes are also finding their way back!
- Cérused Wood
Cérused wood is all the rage now! This style dates back to the 16th century and still continues to find its place as one of the leading trends for years now. It adds texture and depth to any space as it fits well in any type of interior setting irrespective of the theme. You can pick furniture accents made of cerused wood, or go with accented paneling as the focal point of a room.
- Minimalistic Living
This trend is rapidly gaining popularity not only for its style but also because it involves picking and choosing objects that you absolutely require. The idea is to choose furniture that is not only functional in the general aesthetic of the room but also selecting items that are naturally sustainable. Finally, a style that’s great for the environment and for your home!
Fads come and go but trends are here to stay, and these trends made it to the top in 2017. Whatever style you pick, make sure you incorporate them in a way that is both functional as well as aesthetically pleasing so that they can stand the test of time!
