Furniture Trends for 2020
It’s the dawn of a new decade, and we expect to see plenty of innovation. You may be wondering which styles, fabrics, and designs will define this year, and there’s some trends coming up we think are going to be big. So let’s check them out!
In 2020, boxy designs will take a back seat as more rounded styles are gaining plenty of popularity. This trend is best expressed in pieces such as the Boheme low back chair as well as the curvaceous Berlin and Sara chairs. Rounded edges are excellent at making rooms seem more spacious, are a bit safer for children (or loose-fitting clothing) and are highly aesthetically pleasing!
We’re entering the second decade of the 21st century, so technology-infused home furnishings are a no-brainer, but we’re expecting less intrusive and more useful designs than internet-connected speakers.
Fjords makes motorized recliners that deliver cutting-edge, gorgeous design and classic comfort. The stately Madrid is a great example.
The Harlequin adjustable mattress uses technology to offer comfort, support, and improve your day-to-day, instead of providing yet another thing to get weather reports from! Unlike ordinary motion beds, the Harlequin does not sit on a separate platform, as the mechanism is inside the mattress and thus will fit on any existing bed you have. It truly is, one of a kind.
The Icon nightstand has an optional wireless charging station, perfect for when you want to keep your phone charged without the clutter of cords everywhere!
Upholstered beds are certainly making a splash in design circles, and we think they’re poised for serious popularity this year. Their design aids in heat retention and they look amazingly elegant, adding a touch of class to the bedroom. The Kenobi is a timeless example, the Boiserie is a focal point that makes a statement, and the Menlo Park is exquisitely designed and easy to fit into just about any bedroom.
Some trends never fade, and European design is one of them—from entry-level furniture to bespoke pieces and elite design, Europe always delivers with style and craftsmanship. The Segno Buffet designed by Pininfarina offers unexpected touches and novel design elements that embellish the dining area. The Segno Sofa is bold and makes a splash in any living room. The glamorous Il Loft Free Spirit sofa also demonstrates a commitment to form and craft that will never go out of style!
Performance fabrics are going to gain a lot of interest this decade, as they’re durable, beautiful, and flexible. One common example is microfiber, which is stain and dust resistant, very comfortable and durable, and easy to clean.
The Vondom Suave and Sunbrella Diva Daybed are great examples from brands that use impeccable design, resilient materials, and performance fabric to create pieces tough enough for outdoors and stylish enough for interior use.
Looking Ahead to 2020
In a field as creative as designer furnishings, trends can be wild and unpredictable. We always keep our eyes out for fresh ideas so we can continue to bring you the best. We’re looking forward to seeing how these trends develop, and the unexpected ones which will emerge!
