If you enjoy keeping your home stylish and up to date with the latest trends, then 2020 must be the year to watch out for. The trends are bound to elevate furniture designs to the next level while creating a home that exudes elegance and sophistication from the moment you walk into the door. Year after year, different styles in furniture are designed to fit the varied needs of different homeowners. The predominant feature of this year's trend is the uniting theme emitting from a shift in the way we live and work. There is a huge awakening for people to embark in a sustainable way of life from our lifestyles to how we furnish our homes. Gone are the days when purchase of furniture had to be done from a physical brick and mortar store. Nowadays, it's very easy to source trendy pieces from a modern furniture online store at the click of the finger. Below are 5 top furniture trends that you will definitely spot in this year;
1. BIOPHILIC DESIGNS
Sustainability has become an important agenda, especially to millennials. As society gravitates towards a more eco-friendly lifestyle, more and more people are more knowledgeable and intentional on how their purchases impact the environment. This concept has given birth to one of the top 2020 trends - Biophilic furniture designs. These designs seek to blur the line between indoor and outdoor spaces. They incorporate greenery that offers an environment where one can truly feel settled. The tranquillity goes on to inspire a relaxed and creative state of mind. Designers are now sourcing for sustainably grown wood and other recycled materials to make the top of the range furniture.
2. MULTI-FUNCTIONAL FURNITURE
Regardless of the size of your home, it's always difficult to include every decor element that you may need now or in the future. This has brought about the need to have multi-purpose furniture in our homes. Nowadays, plenty of furniture pieces are designed to incorporate hidden storage spaces, charging ports or furniture with adaptable pieces that can be moved about for different uses. This trend saves the homeowner the needed space and money while getting everything you need in a single piece of furniture.
3. MIXED METAL FURNITURE
This year’s furniture trend has a definite obsession with metals. Gold, silver, brass, aluminium and copper are the prominent metals that can be spotted in furniture finishings that make these pieces stand out remarkably. The basic guideline when it comes to working with different metals is choosing one dominant metal and the rest can accent. Neutral metals such as cast iron can, however, be easily combined for that impeccable finish.
4. PLAYFUL, POSTMODERN DESIGNS
Over the years, designers are increasingly incorporating playful and imaginative designs in furniture designs. This trend is a distinct throwback and a reemergence of curvy shaped furniture that has been inspired by the 60s and 70s. These designs are then infused with a modern twist to make furniture that is out of this world. These nostalgic, childlike features offer an escape route to a time before the anxieties of contemporary society. Homeowners will see the incorporation of both old and new pieces that are both conceptual yet quite functional.
5. EARTH TONED FURNITURE
For many, the term ‘neutral’ is often translated to ‘boring.’ This doesn't always have to be the case. Embracing earth tones is a top furniture trend for 2020. Earth tone colors range from deep reds and tans to cool greys and beiges. Whether you are leaning towards a modern home or more traditional one, earth tones work well with almost any design plan. Earth-toned colors are known to make a home feel inviting while bringing instant cosiness to a home.
