Trend #1: Maximalism
The Scandinavian less-is-more trend, characterized by solid colors and low-slung seating, lost popularity this year. The Norwegian “Hygge” movement was another part of this style, popular in the past but less in favor this year.
2019 was all about Maximalism. This style includes bright colors and dramatic graphic patterns. The bigger, brighter, and busier—the better. You could achieve this look by adding a pop of color in your living room with a club chair or decorative throw pillows.
Trend #2: Natural Materials
Furniture and decor made from natural materials made a splash in 2019 and it is a trend we hope is here to stay. Natural materials such as rattan, bamboo, seagrass, jute, and cork have the ability to add a wild, lush accent to any living area. This trend is versatile and timeless, looking great with any style.
Trend #3: Spanish Styling
Spanish and Mediterranean influences have been hot in 2019, giving off a light and relaxing feel. White plaster walls, linen upholstery, and natural wood all contribute to this laid-back motif. A large fireplace, or one that is the focal point of the room, is also a key feature. Additionally, wrought iron pieces, like this Miami Bookcase, provides a nice Spanish-style contrast to any room’s lighter colors.
Trend #4: Moroccan Tile
Dramatic Moroccan patterns remain one of interior design’s reigning trends over the past few years. Moroccan patterns are versatile with any design, ranging from modern to rustic. They also act as great accent pieces.
Trend #5: Velvet Furnishings
This luxurious and comfortable fabric made a comeback this year. It can add charm and a touch of glamor to a living space or bedroom. Velvet sofas, ottomans, curtains, carpets, and even headboards can add a luxurious, elegant feeling to a room.
Trend #6: Color Saturation
Deep, rich tones (especially dark greens and reds), made their mark this year. These colors bring out more personality than some of the light gray color schemes popular in the past. Solid color accent walls and wallpaper that contrast with other furnishings can have a powerful effect on the look of a room.
