Guest Blog: 3 Emerging Styles In Contemporary Furniture
by Jenny Zhu on 1 comment
What’s exciting in the world of contemporary furniture? With so many new fads out there, it can seem overwhelming, so we’ve compiled a short guide to 2020’s top trends. Trends can move quickly in the design world, and while fads may be fleeting, there are key things to look for that identify a great style that will outlast a passing fad. Read on to discover three exciting and emerging styles in the contemporary furniture landscape.
1. Updated Leather
Leather chairs and couches are not new to the furniture scene by any means, but the element of grounding they bring to any room cannot be understated. Expect to see more leather accents making their way into design in unexpected ways, including chair accents, rugs, wall hangings, tables, and pieces of art. Pairing different types and colors of leather in a single piece is another trendy design feature that continues to grow in popularity. These two-toned elements bring with them a balance of both the masculine and the feminine, so don’t be afraid to combine these polarities to mix up and blend your space accordingly.
2. Modern Wood
Wood is a traditional material that will never go out of style. But lately, the use of wood has grown in popularity by leaps and bounds, with the trend expected to continue through 2020 and beyond. Whether you bring in wood flooring to your kitchen, add more wooden elements to your bathroom or living area, or even add in a home bar, adding wood to your home can bring in a new level of earthiness to your environment.
People inherently want to feel connected to their surroundings, and bringing in elements of nature to home design can help to do that. Whether it’s a contextually fitting element or the ideal counterpoint to modernize an existing area, wood is a timeless but chic material.
