2021 Home Furniture Trends
When it comes to home furnishings, our choices are generally guided by what we find attractive. But, we should never underestimate the influence of fashion. While we may choose our home décor according to preference, most of us also have an eye on current trends.
Here at Clarkes Carpets, we’ve been a family-run business since 1968. Over that time we’ve seen fashions in home furnishings come and go. That’s why we keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to interior design. So, read on to discover the latest home furniture trends for 2021.
Colours that are current
When it comes to home furniture we all have our favourite colours, of course. But if you’re a fan of pink, you could be on trend for 2021. Soft and neutral tones are looking popular, which will blend nicely with pastel shades of pink. If you want to make more of an impact, why not combine with pale yellow or contrasting dark blue. Yellow and grey are looking good, too, and could bring a little sunshine to your home.
One of the buzzwords of 2021 is ‘eclectic’. In short, this style is defined as taking ideas from a wide range of styles. When it comes to choosing colour, that’s as good as a blank canvas. We’re all hoping for a brighter future, so don’t be afraid to be bold with your home furnishings. Vivid shades such as orange and azure can look fantastic. It’s just a case of choosing the right combinations, and harmonising with existing décor.
Metal is in
When we think of furniture, we tend to think of wood. Recently, metal has become more of a feature of modern furniture. This could be partly due to the increasing popularity of recycled and repurposed furniture; and also the sought-after industrial furniture trend. Even office furniture featuring metal elements is turning up in other rooms around the home, including living and dining rooms. Geometric shapes also seem to be making a comeback, and we could be heading for another brief Art Deco era. So, don’t put the metal polish away just yet!
Styling it out
When it comes to home furnishings, style is a moveable feast. Styles come in and go out, and then come back into fashion again. One recent style that was expected to fade is mid-century modern, reflecting design in the 1950s and 60s. It hasn’t faded yet, and still looks as stylish as ever. The shabby chic look has been around for a while, too. But with the trend for up-cycled furniture still going strong, we doubt that it’s going anywhere anytime soon.
Traditional and classic styles have always been a feature of interior design, and their popularity seems to be growing again. Storage furniture and seating sold well in 2020. That trend may continue for a little while.
