Certain kinds of furniture pieces are always in style, but with every new year there are fun new furniture trends that you can incorporate into your home. This year bold looks, as well as some understated, elegant styles, will be making their way into showrooms (and homes) everywhere.
Material mixing is one of the biggest trends you’ll be able to take advantage of this year. Whether you’re looking to mix leather and fabric, metal and wood, metal and glass, or something else altogether, this trend is going to be hard to miss. Pairing different materials together like this brings dimension to a piece and allows you to decorate around it in a completely different way. Want to have some wood in your room but don’t want to go natural when it comes to décor? Pick and wood and glass option instead and move towards a more modern feel, or go with something unique like a wood front couch. With more materials to choose from, more doors open up when it comes to designing the remainder of the room.
Texture is another big thing that you’ll see in the furniture industry throughout 2014. Gone are the days of simply choosing between microfiber and leather furniture – now, upholstered items are coming in beautiful chenille’s, velvets, and textured microfibers that bring a whole new look to a set. The furniture not only becomes more inviting, but it also more plush and comfortable to lounge on.
Last year, brass and gold accents were the popular choice. Now, silver is making waves by creating a sleek, modern look on all kinds of furniture. Look for silver nailheads accenting the frame and arms of sofas and loveseats, or silver drawer pulls of all shapes and sizes on dressers, chests, and nightstands. Silver can also be found in a variety of dinettes. You’ll find options for shiny, polished silver hardware, as well as more a more muted finish.
If you want to make a statement with your furniture, 2014 is the year to do so because bold patterns are making their presence known. Traditional stripes and paisleys can still be found, but you’ll also have a variety of more modern options to choose from, including chevron, ikat, script, butterflies, and even camouflage! The great thing about patterns like these is that they are a perfect way to bring character to your home without going overboard – a few throw pillows can do just the trick.
Finally, furniture inspired by decades gone by is a popular trend. Retro furniture, such as our Red Sofa and Loveseat set, is designed to resemble the items found in homes during the Mad Men days, can be a great way to accentuate your living room or bedroom. Clean lines, sharp angles, tufting details, and simplicity define this type of look.
The furniture trends for 2014 are stunning and varied – you’re sure to find something that will match your particular style.
