If you’re in the midst of making your house a home, it’s time to introduce yourself to today’s most trending furniture.
Let’s face it, we’re spending more time at home than we ever have. In April of 2020, nearly 47% of people in the UK reported working from home as a result of the Coronavirus. As the outbreak has continued to climb, the number of professionals working from home has only increased.
We’re cooking at home, we’re relaxing at home and we’re working our 9-5 job from the kitchen table. With so much time stuck inside, what better time to redecorate our homes and curate a happy space?
This is why a growing number of homeowners are choosing now to focus on replenishing their homes. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your entire home or a single room, there’s no time like the present.
So, what’s hot and in-demand in the year 2021? Keep reading to find out! We’re sharing our guide to the most trending furniture of the year and providing a much-needed dose of design inspiration!
1. Floor Lamps
Perhaps one of the most significant furniture trends in 2021 belongs to the lighting department.
In 2020, homeowners turned much of their attention to pendant lighting. Nowadays, floor lamps have overtaken the lighting world and are becoming the go-to source of lighting for today’s homeowners. Not only is this a simple way to illuminate a room, but a floor lamp can also act as an attractive furniture piece or even artwork.
In terms of design, we’re seeing anything from modern and Scandanavian to industrial and loft-friendly. In place of a traditional lampshade, bulbs are often exposed or cylindrical.
2. Multi-Functional Furniture
In today’s day and age, our most trending furniture is all about serving a dual purpose.
In outfitting our homes, we’re looking for furniture that doesn’t only look great but also functions well. This is where multi-function furniture comes into play. After all, 2021 is all about designing a home environment that is both comfortable and practical to our daily lives.
For this, we’re looking at simple pieces of furniture that have the ability to transform into something else entirely. This could be, for example, a dining table that transforms into a shelving unit. With this, the goal is to create the most usable space possible.
3. The Minimal Desk
In addition to spending our leisure time at home, we’re also learning the art of how to work effectively from home. As a result, many home dwellers have taken to set up a home desk.
To save space, the desk’s of today are significantly more compact and minimal than a traditional desk. We’re seeing desks omit extras features such as drawers and compartments in order to take up less room. Instead, we’re sticking to quality materials such as wood and focusing on a setup that is clutter-free and minimal.
4. A Serving Trolley
In the past, serving trolleys were typically an outdoor fixture used predominantly in cocktail parties.
Nowadays, we’re all about bringing the great outdoors in. These serving trolleys are often placed in the dining room and are the perfect host to a liquor collection or a natural habitat for houseplants. This is also a great space for coffee table books, flowers and family photos.
Drawing on some mid-century modern inspiration, today’s most trending serving trolleys are outfitted in natural wood, black metal and a timeless bronze. We’re also seeing a growing number of serving trolleys embracing soft curves and resisting the angular design patterns of 2020.
5. Chic Rattan Furnishings
Of course, we were introduced to all things rattan last year.
As we inch into 2021, it’s clear that rattan furnishings aren’t going anywhere. While the specifics may change, it’s clear this is one trend that’s here to stay for the long-run. Here in 2021, the rattan that we so enjoyed in 2020 is embracing an ever-so-slight change.
Rather than emitting a bohemian vibe, the rattan of 2021 is seemingly more chic and elegant. We’re seeing rattan present itself in high-end hotels, contemporary design and sophisticated restaurants.
Rattan is a simple way to add texture to your space whilst also adding an element of warmth. At the same time, rattan has the unique ability to add a taste of chicness to any room without feeling overbearing. We’re predicting rattan to present itself in anything from light fixtures and headboards to dining chairs and planters.
6. A Bold Sofa
In 2021, it’s all about playing with colour in your living room.
When it comes to choosing your sofa, don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors and playful patterns. Here in 2021, we’re all about outfitting your living room with a sofa that’s going to pop and draw in some eyes.
So far, we’re seeing plenty of bold colours such as mustard yellow, olive green and vivid red. In terms of texture, homeowners are turning their eye to bold materials like velvet, vintage corduroy and natural wool.
7. Natural Bedroom Linens
When it comes to the bedroom, homeowners are growing to be more serious about their linens.
Progressing into 2021, we’re seeing a shift to the natural world in terms of our bedsheets. Homeowners are now more interested in investing in high-quality threads that are suited to enhance their nightly sleep rituals. To achieve the desired 7-9 hours of sleep each night for adults, homeowners are getting serious about their beds.
In terms of coloring, we’re seeing an upturn in neutrals such as beige, ivory, taupe and grey. As per materials, bamboo, organic cotton and linen are topping the charts. At the end of the day, the goal in 2021 is to create a bedroom that feels natural and warm with a touch of luxury.
