In tune with the world around us, trends in upholstered furniture and interior design are constantly changing. In recent years, the customer's attention is no longer focused entirely on the appearance of the furniture, but increasingly on its comfort, functionality, materials and the overall feeling and inspiration it brings. Especially for you, we have selected the leading design trends in upholstered furniture - colors, features and styles.
Using different shades to create a certain atmosphere at home is one of the trends for 2023. The main colors in upholstered furniture are no longer just beige or gray – designers are increasingly choosing bright and bold color combinations. Oil green, blue, burgundy and old gold are used as accent colors for the upholstered furniture in the living room.
Dining chairs can be in fresh pastel tones - turquoise, yellow or blue-green. Preferred textiles are those with additional anti-stain and spill-repellent treatment.
In recent years, more and more people have started working from home so it is important for them to set aside a work area at home that is both functional and pleasant. The most desirable color combinations for the home office are pastel, more muted and calming earthy color - green, brown, beige.
The Scandinavian style in the interior is one of the most sought after recently - it creates a trend to use natural materials for bases and frames of sofas and chairs. It is inspired by nature – a harmonious combination of warm colors, wood and pastel tones, without neglecting comfort and functionality. Scandinavian sofas are minimalistic, comfortable and stylish. Armrests and legs made of natural wood bring warmth, coziness and sophistication to any room.
There is a growing popularity of eco-design, which involves the use of natural and recycled materials, ethical and sustainable production, local products with greater durability and a minimal carbon and transport footprint.
Sustainability in manufacturing is critical to the future of design. With the rise of market culture, there is a tendency to choose native production and products created with attention to detail and with a traceable origin of the materials used.
In recent years, in addition to the growing popularity of wood, industrial metals and natural stone have begun to replace materials such as polished brass in the furniture industry. The use of metal in the production of chairs and armchairs is increasing, which is a consequence of the lower cost of processing the metal.
Sofas with higher legs
A trend that has been gaining more and more fame is the sofa with high legs. Why? First of all: a modern look - a sofa with high legs looks lighter and more elegant than traditional furniture with low legs. This makes a great difference for small spaces - the sofa will not visually "take over" the entire room. This sofa creates a feeling of freedom and lightness.
Practical considerations are of no less importance – cleaning under the sofa is no longer a problem, as the high legs allow easy access for a cleaning robot.
No sofa beds
In smaller spaces, furniture and accessories that visually open and expand the interior are preferred. In the last year, however, customers are increasingly looking for alternatives to sofas with a sleep function, without compromising convenience and comfort. A solution to this is a deep sofa with the possibility of sleeping without a fold-out mechanism as it has sufficient width and length to allow it. In this case, the comfort of sitting does not change, as long as quality materials and polyurethane foam with sufficient density are used for maximum comfort.
