While it’s only natural that a design trend makes rotation and revisits us every couple of decades, such as the recent resurgence of retro, a surprising design trend of 2020 is uniqueness. Finally, being off-trend is trending, which means that if you’re going to dedicate a shelf to Star Wars memorabilia or bedecking your fridge in Frida Kahlo print, now is the time to do it. But you’ll still have the opportunity to repurpose, reclaim and reuse, which is the other side of 2020 trending. Seeing as wood for the construction industry is such a hot potato lately, it’s the ideal candidate to set your trend.
The Layering Of Old And New
You no longer have to pull out the chalk paint to hide the fact that you have three different types of wood in your lounge. Modern trends embrace the various rich tones that you get from your mahogany and oak without batting an eye. If you still happen to have some of those chalk or acrylic painted pieces lying around, add them to the mix as well. The layering of old and new also extends to knick-knacks and soft furnishings.
Be Bold With Textures
One of the most exciting design trends for 2020 is incorporating garlands and hanging ornaments into everyday interiors. Lightweight wood such as driftwood or wormwood offers interesting textures to garlands and is a little more durable than paper. Combine hanging garlands with fabrics and polished glass to create interesting design pieces. Forward-thinking design is at the heart of interiors and Made CNC note the role precision cutting plays in achieving that design. Those who require something with a little more structure can use modern woodworking tools to fabricate items that provide symmetrical balance.
More Japan, Less Scandinavia
Scandi design managed to dominate design trends for most of the last decade, and while there is still room for the minimalist approach to interiors, it leans more to Japanese influence. This means more wood and more opportunity to repurpose. From screens and bed bases to flooring and wall trims, wood plays an important role in Japanese design. To finish off the look, it’s important to include oriental fabrics to complete the design and give it character.
The earthy and peaceful quality of wood allows us to create interiors that we wish to mirror. By repurposing the old to express newfound design styles, it allows homeowners to stay on trend while remaining true to their role as stewards to Earth’s resources.
