The sustainability trend was highly popular in 2019 and is continuing to grow in 2020. The fashion for brown furniture has become part of the sustainability movement. Also painting, customising and more up-cycling will be part of the trend.
2020 is the year that people’s personal styles will be discovered. The sustainability trend will stop mass-consumption due to people being more experimental (such as painting a side board you already owned, or using leftover fabric to make a cushion), and this alone will encourage people to be unique and individual with their style.
Minimalist Scandi design interiors have been an on-going trend for what seems too long now, and we think it’s about time we saw some braver, bolder interiors. Interior designs are steering away from clean and simple, and leaning towards bold and flamboyant.
4) CONCEALED KITCHENS
Another huge design trend is minimalist kitchens with smarter storage and disguised handles. These are great for small kitchen designs, and creating a streamlined look in a modern kitchen space.
5) CURVED FURNITURE
We are seeing a major comeback of the 80’s with furniture with curves and rounded edges. This is being seen in upholstery, and velvet is very popular that this furniture is being made using.
6) CONTRAST – BOLD BLACK AND WHITE
High contrast design is making a comeback. Bold black and crisp white is such a dynamic duo and it would be a lie if we said it wasn’t missed! Such a classic.
Patterns, in particular layered patterns, are becoming more frequent within textiles designs. There will be both pattern mixing and pattern matching, and the exciting thing about this trend is that there are no rules!
8) TRANQUIL HUES
Dulux Colour of the Year 2020: Tranquil Dawn. To be described as a super soft and neutral tone of green. We can see this shade working well with creams, greys and maybe some brown, wooden furniture (touching upon the sustainability trend)!
Texture is increasingly being used to add interest to interiors. A particular trending look is the layering up of different textured products and materials, but of similar colours.
10) REAL PLANTS
A bit of greenery is always admired in an interior space. However this year faux plants are being pushed aside by real plants. They are known to add another dimension, simply giving the space a bit of real-life personality.
