Best Indoor Furniture Trends to Look Out For in 2018
Posted on 02/26/2018
Although you want your sofa to be stylish, it should always be comfortable. You want to be able to chill out and relax in your own home.
This is why we're so pleased to see curved and puffy couches rising in popularity!
Especially, padded velvet sofas. This is the perfect way to add a little luxury to your front room.
These fabulously round couches are redefining living room style and comfort.
Although this style steps away from the geometric styled sofas that rocked 2017, we don't think this fashion will become irrelevant.
Rather, the two styles will probably go head to head with one another throughout 2018 because they're both gorgeous!
Metalic furniture is also set to be a massive trend for 2018.
We love how a hint of metal provides a modern twist to retro themed furniture.
Metal indoor furniture is an absolute must in city apartments. It adds the perfect urban edge to any living room.
If you're wondering what metallic furniture to add to your existing decor we recommend any of the following:
- Coffee tables
- Smaller tables.
Choosing a relatively small piece of furniture is a great way to sample this trend.
Velvet Furniture Makes a Come-Back
Let's circle back to the velvet couch we just spoke about.
We love this fabric, and it's set to storm back into the heart of 2018!
If velvet sounds like something you want to experiment with, then we recommend following this advice:
- Go for chairs in a weave or flat fabric in addition to your velvet statement piece. These should contrast but compliment your velvet furniture.
- Be bold and mix various velvet textures and styles in the same room.
- Try to opt for velvet in a modern color. For example chartreuse or turquoise. This is the perfect modern slant to a retro style.
Plus, velvet's super easy to clean, so it's a win-win!
If you're into DIY style interiors then you'll love this recycled furniture trend.
There are loads of refurbished materials lovingly transformed into new pieces of furniture, and we can't get enough of them!
Great examples of what we're talking about include old wine crates and vintage looking chests.
With expert craftsmanship, these lay the foundation for gorgeous living room accessories.
Sometimes, less is more, and that's never been truer when it comes to minimalism. This trend is here to stay in 2018.
To achieve this look you need to source furniture that exudes quality. You only want to acquire a few quality items so as to open up your living room.
Clutter is the opposite of minimalism so have a clear out and think about what you need.
This fashion is a great way to make space look bigger and more inviting.
Houseplants are a classic and they'll never go out of fashion.
However, in 2018 they're back, and they're bigger and better than ever before.
We're talking about collections of oversized plants with interesting leaf shapes and bold colors.
Plus, we predict we'll see a rise in patterned plants. By this, we mean plants that have awesome leaf designs and shapes.
This is by far the most cost-effective way of sprucing up your home. So if you're living room is in need of a new lease of life- buy a plant, it really is as simple as that!
In terms of colors, we predict that neutrals will remain the focus of 2018.
However, these will be contrasted against the occasional splash of bright statement colors.
2018 will be the year of bold pigments. Think burnt oranges, greens, peacock blues, and bright reds.
In 2017 we saw a move towards bleached woods and modest looking furniture.
However, in 2018 think bold and beautiful. We predict to see woods like dark oak, mahogany and textured walnut to storm the nation.
Furniture made from woods like these are fabulous if you're looking to add a bit of depth to the room.
The Rise of Gold and The Fall in Copper
Obviously, in 2017 we fell in love with copper. However, it's time for this love affair to end because copper is out and gold is in for 2018.
We love golds classic look, it's been in and out of fashion for decades but this time it's here to stay.
In 2018 we'll see more and more people opt for statement storage pieces.
Who says that practicality and style don't mix? We love these versatile pieces! They can be creatively placed throughout your home.
We feel better when things are organized and 'put together' which is why these pieces of furniture are such an asset. No wonder we love them so much!
Last but not least, we believe wabi-sabi will be a massive hit in 2018.
This is a traditional Japanese aesthetic, which hinges on accepting imperfection.
Sometimes, there's beauty in ordinary things- and this is what this fashion focuses on.
Classic wabi-sabi characteristics include:
- Rustic in nature
Wabi-sabi is probably the most radical out of all the indoor furniture trends discussed in this article, so have some fun with it!
