Trends, of course, come and go, but the Scandi trend that we saw arrive in 2016 has again manifested itself in so much furniture this year that it can still be considered a strong trend. The fact that the Pantone color of the year is a Scandi’ inspired green reinforces the prominence of this particular look. The key thing with trends in furniture is to make them work for you and not to let them overpower your existing belongings. It’s simply not feasible to redesign and redecorate your home or living space every time a new trend appears. Incorporating elements of your favorite segments in whatever amount is one way of keeping up with the times without breaking the bank or causing a colossal clash.
A simple injection of greenery color through textured and relevant shades in cushions and throws is a simple and inexpensive way to do this. Of course, the other thing to consider is that not all trends will be to your tastes. Listed below in the infographic of 2017’s furniture trends includes mirrored furniture, and this could likely be a divisive suggestion. Many would view mirrored furniture as indulgent and crass, but when done right, this is a furniture piece that can add real interest and style to a room. Like all trends, it’s important not to go overboard with any of them, or you will allow the pattern to swallow the rest of the room.
The texture is another strong trend featured this year, and adding something with a sturdy texture can change a room for the better. Elaborate and luxury fabrics such as velvet will bring a new angle to a place and create a unique and inviting focal point. The trend of velvet sofas brings a modern elegance to a room, but it needs to be met equally by complementary accessories like elegant coffee tables and lamps.
