Top Trends in Decorating and Furniture Designs for 2017
The Hottest Design Trends in Furniture, Colours, and Fabrics Heading into 2017
For many people, the turn of a calendar page from December to January signifies a time for change; in many cases, any such changes are influenced by assessing the year just gone by then resolving to alter their personal lifestyles with respect to physical exercise, diet, and/or spending habits.
The dawn of a new year also brings about many media reviews of noteworthy news, sports, and entertainment stories from the past twelve months, along with expert prognostications of what to expect for the year ahead; some of these reports will even dig up the predictions from a year ago and assess how accurate they were in comparison to what really happened between then and now.
And then there are the trend reports; these are the summaries of what experts believe will be the hottest new developments in a particular field or market for the next year. Fashions, travel destinations, automobiles, and digital/wireless technology are all popular topics in this regard – as is home décor. Homeowners and interior designers alike are eager to hear what the experts have to say about the newest design trends in furniture and colour schemes, so they can then determine how to best incorporate these concepts into their home decorating or property staging efforts moving forward.
Thus, with 2016 now fully in the rear-view mirror, Carrocel fine furniture offers the following summary of the top furniture and design trends heading into 2017 (in no particular order):
- Furniture Design: the transformation of art deco, classic, and vintage period furniture through the application of contemporary materials and textures; repurposing pieces for modern-day use
- Colour Palettes: soft, spring colours with environmental or earth-tone influences such as various shades of kale (green), lavender, and hazelnut on the walls; furniture fabrics will include greens and blues with hints/traces of dark grey
- Use of Metals: a greater tendency to mix different metals in the same piece, including brass/chrome, brass/bronze, and silver/polished nickel; or the incorporation of the same metal in different finishes e.g.: metallic and matte gold
- Fabrics: a noteworthy move toward more durable and stain-resistant types of materials
- Textures: look for natural fibres/finishes, such as cane, rattan, abaca, terracotta, cork
- Functionality: multi-purpose furniture e.g.: traditional use, artistic appeal, and storage
- Bedrooms: significant shift to upholstered headboards from the traditional wood/timber
