Continuing our examination of the latest and most important trends in furniture for 2019, we’re back with two trends that will definitely shape most living spaces around the country. There are a lot of trends that we can identify and make use of in 2019, but we have reduced that number to four, as we explained on part one, so you can have a better understanding of what to get. Here are the last two:
Return of The Curves
Something that most interior design blogs concur on is that sleek lines are becoming a little bit old. That’s not because they’re unappealing, but rather because they have been prominently featured in almost every furniture piece that aims to be contemporary, modern, and approachable. It is no longer a design breakthrough, and in order for interior design to keep moving forward, we have to ditch them. At least temporarily.
This doesn’t mean that you should get rid of your sleek, straight-lined furniture. We love that kind of furniture, here at Manhattan Home Design. It is one of the tenets of mid-century modernism. If your living space is looking a bit too straight, consider adding balance by purchasing some curved pieces. Their curves don’t have to be prominent, just focus on furniture that isn’t too rough around the edges (literally speaking).
Art Deco & Geometric Patterns
Another prominent trend will be the return of some Art Deco furniture (which we also love here at Manhattan Home Design). Art Deco is the gateway through which living spaces will have access to aesthetically pleasing accents and decoration. After all, that same sleekness that we just mentioned favors clean spaces, free from ornamental clutter. The idea of a ‘calm’ space, serious, mature and without ornaments, is also becoming a little outdated. Long gone are the years of minimalism and the Bauhaus, and even though we have tried to keep that trend alive, we’ve seem to have admitted that we need a little more pizzazz in our home design.
Along with Art Deco come geometric patterns, which will become very important and ubiquitous in the next few years (according to most interior design outlets). You are now free to implement geometric patterns whenever you feel like you should, but not everywhere. Manhattan Home Design has a wide selection of geometric furniture, inspired by basic shapes like a circle, a triangle, a square, etc. Some of your old modern-and-sleek furniture can be repurposed as geometric pieces, provided there’s a theme to go with your intentions.
Other items with futuristic touches, such as the Ball chair, can be considered geometric and would probably do well in newer living rooms. Manhattan Home Design’s Hanging chairs, along with their stands, would probably make for a very compelling living room option. You can think of them as Art Deco pieces as well, as long as you manage to make everything come together.
Furniture trends are ever changing, and this is just the beginning. After all, new trends will arise on old ones will die out before 2019 is over. We might even do some pieces to correct ourselves from time to time but always with you, our customer, in mind.
