What is the Next Furniture Trend?
We often think about kitchen trends, paint colors, and garden designs when it comes to our home’s decor, but furniture isn’t always a top consideration. Yet, a well-chosen new piece can refresh your space and serve as a statement-making focal point for your home’s design aesthetic. And whether you’re in need of a full overhaul or just looking for fresh ideas, we’ve gathered some of the top furniture trends to watch this year.
The era of straight lines and clinical decor is coming to an end. In 2023, look for softer silhouettes with more fluid lines that create an inviting, relaxing feel. Whether full-on voluptuous or gently rounded, curved furnishings offer a fresh alternative to the stark styles that were popular in previous years. And, because homeowners are looking for ways to maximize their space, multifunctional pieces will be in high demand. For instance, a sofa that extends into a bed or a TV panel that doubles as a desk are just a few of the furniture designs to expect to see in stores and online this year.
As an added bonus, curved pieces can also provide a subtle textural contrast. Another big trend that’s sure to impact furniture this year is the return of natural materials. Interior designers tell us that sustainable woods and other renewable materials are on the rise. They say that rattan, jute, and bamboo have an organic, textured quality that can be used to add warmth to a room and make it feel closer to nature. Plus, they’re durable enough to withstand everyday wear and tear.
Another natural material to keep an eye out for is stoneware. This earthy material can be used to create bold tabletop pieces or smaller decorative accessories like trays, candlesticks, and bowls. Brown tones are particularly on trend, creating a warm, earthy feel that anchors a room.
We’re also seeing more homes embrace biophilic trends, meaning that they are inspired by nature and the outdoors. This trend can be seen in the use of materials such as reeded woodwork, plant-based finishes, and natural linens.
If you’re interested in incorporating any of these furniture trends into your home, shop around to find the best prices and styles. And don’t be afraid to explore secondhand options at local flea markets or on sites like Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. These days, it’s easier than ever to find unique pieces that will stand the test of time.
