Trends in Living Room Furniture for 2018 and Beyond
Keeping Pace with the Latest Trends in Living Room Furniture and Accessories
When construction crews are framing the infrastructure of new houses and living room furniture, they typically follow blueprints that outline the number and types of rooms to include, as well as the dimensions of those rooms and their locations in relation to each other. Once this phase of the work is completed, the services of various contractors and tradespeople are required to carry the construction process forward; plumbers, electricians, carpenters, HVAC specialists and many others will all play integral roles before these houses are declared ready for occupancy.
Yet despite the end results of using all this professional knowledge and skill, one may argue that the final product is just a house like any other house – until the eventual owners make it a home. Even if the house has been custom-built, with its owners choosing the flooring, cabinetry, bathroom fixtures, and so on, those definitive elements of home décor, i.e.: the furnishings, are not included in the blueprints nor are they the responsibilities of the builder and the subcontractors; this onus lies solely with the homeowners.
Choosing the right furniture and accessories is indeed important for converting a house into a home; home décor can influence, to one extreme or the other, such essentials as comfort, relaxation, aesthetic appeal, and pride of ownership. And nowhere in the home is this more important than the living room, the space displaying the homeowner’s best-quality furniture and often used for relieving the tension of daily life and for socializing with family or friends.
However, trends in home decorating styles can change over time, as can homeowner tastes and personal preferences; consequently, what once seemed appropriate for a living room in terms of its décor and furniture may now have grown tired and/or is no longer fashionable.
In fact, for homeowners who might find themselves in this precise situation with their living room furniture, there are several new, stylish trends that have gained prominent footholds heading into 2018 and appear to be here-to-stay for quite some time. To that end, the fine furniture experts at the Carrocel furniture store, located near the Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, offer the following synopsis of ‘what’s hot’ in terms of living room furniture and accessories:
- Style – a combination of comfort, functionality, and luxury
- Design – geometric or linear patterns and rounded corners
- Metals – gold and brass have supplanted bronze and copper
- Textures – smooth velvet, brushed metals, and smoked glass
- Colours – bold and rich tones of yellow, red, orange, and green
- Accents – trendy materials i.e.: steel, marble, wood, brass, gold
Of course, words on a page are often insufficient when describing the latest trends in luxury living room furniture and accents; it is the type of information that might best be absorbed and appreciated through sight and touch. This in turn is achievable by visiting the Carrocel showroom, at 245 Bridgeland Avenue in Toronto, which will also provide the opportunity to consult with a member of Carrocel’s knowledgeable and experienced staff.
