2017’s Top Furniture Trends

2016 was the year we witnessed the arrival of the Scandinavian inspired look in the furniture and interiors space and it is one trend that has continued into this year’s offerings. As we’re at the halfway point of the year, here’s our take on what trends are driving furniture purchases for people; read on to discover all you need to know!  

Deep Jewelled Tones

With Pantone announcing that their colour for 2017 is a zesty shade of green, it’s no surprise that we are seeing the colour (and related shades) manifest itself in many pieces of inspiring interior designs and furniture. This once again harks back to a wintery Scandi’ influence and it’s a hue that is flattering, easy on the eye and simple to incorporate into homes. While the stronger emerald tones might not be for everyone, it’s important to note that just because it’s a trend it doesn’t mean that every room or every part of one room has to feature the colour. You can of course go as focused or expansive as your tastes desire. One way of incorporating this exciting trend in just one part of your home is with a sofa like this exquisite beauty pictured. This particular sofa will certainly be a talking point in your home but for all the good reasons. Not only does it catch the eye but the beautiful fabric means it’s the epitome of comfort, style and luxury all at once, plus it’s 100% on trend!  

Green Sofa

Texture

Rich Velvet Sofa

Texture has gained popularity in a big way in 2017 and nowhere more prevalent have we seen this than with the huge surge in demand for rich and opulent fabrics like velvet. An injection of texture such as velvet into a piece of furniture results in delivering a really elegant focal point. Bring this luxurious appeal into your home with the addition of a well designed and high quality velvet sofa or armchair and you have a fantastic design theme immediately. If your budget doesn’t rise to a new sofa, velvet is something that can be easily incorporated through use of throws, cushions, footstools and so on. Sometimes with velvet, less is more so if you do go for the sofa option, keep the rest of the accessories in the room to a minimum. Metallic accessories like silver picture frames, gold trays or candelabras would also be stunning with this particular colour of sofa. 

Upholstered Bed Frames

Upholstered bed frames

Elaborate upholstered bed frames might initially bring to mind the lavish interiors of soccer player mansions but they are very much to the forefront of many people’s wish lists for 2017. Buoyed by the emergence of metallic hues as a favourite of many well known interior and lifestyle bloggers, the upholstered bed head or frame also features the trend that we have already mentioned of textured and luxe fabric. Say hello to exquisite materials and sublime detailing in the form of a velvet finished bed frame which in itself could be the focal point of the bedroom. There’s definitely nothing muted about this style of bed frame but with a variety of colours to choose from, there is likely one to suit your bedroom theme; if it’s a new room and you have leeway to work with colours, you should begin by choosing your bed head fabric colour and go from there. To keep things from being too over the top, select more muted accessories with added pops of accent colours like dusty pinks, corals and so on. 

Navy

Navy fabric armchair

Rich tones of the colour navy are a trend that has very much found its way into 2017. Navy is a versatile colour and is less harsh than black; it can work well with traditional themes (think marine related colours) but it can also be highly modern depending on the tone of navy and of course the choice of accessories that you put with it. This particular navy fabric armchair is a superb choice and borders on a dark denim look which would add real interest and garner lots of compliments wherever you locate it.

Marble

Marble console table

Marble finishes and marble effect furniture are another exciting trend that has arrived this year. The marble effect trend has manifested itself not just into interiors but into other items like phone covers and notebooks such is its popularity. Instantly providing a touch of glamour, it’s also a fantastically practical material in the home. A marble topped dining table is an obvious option which will be visually impactful and you can be playful with your accessories with its colour tone being so neutral. This post from the Real Style Network highlights an interesting style contrast by adding in soft pinks as part of your accessory suggestions. 

Cerused Wood Finishes

The cerused wood finish trend is a welcome one as it adds instant interest to ubiquitous furniture pieces. The cerused finish harks towards a rustic and almost reclaimed look which is always interesting to look at and will last the test of time. We adore our Cairo range which encompasses that butcher block style of finish and is proving exceptionally popular with customers. A play on that which also combines the retro’ and Scandi’ style that is also hugely popular is perfectly defined in our Chelsea bar stool collection which are wonderfully playful with their colour pop but practical also.

Mirrored Furniture

Mirrored furniture is a trend that has really taken off this year and since we’ve added this collection, we’ve found it fast becoming a firm favourite with customers. Match this opulent and supremely stylish furniture with anything from upholstered beds to wooden bed frames in the bedroom or consider including a console table in your hallway to create a spectacular entrance setting. Accessories such as metallic candelabras, lamps, and frames will prove wonderfully complementary to this furniture.

That’s our take on furniture trends so far this year; we’ve still got a few months to play with so you too can still inject some of these ideas into your home!
