It’s no secret that the right piece of furniture design can transform a room. Whether you opt for a unique custom creation or keep it simple with a stylish option it’s all about finding furniture that speaks to your interior design aesthetic.
We searched far and wide for the top furniture design trends for 2020. From sculptural furniture to European-inspired details, each design trend is more than enough inspiration to outfit your home with the furniture of your dreams.
Everything is cyclical in design, and right now we’re seeing the resurgence of ’80s furniture trends, like curved sofas and other upholstered furnishings. We’re also seeing a focus on statement pieces and furnishings that play with scale, such as oversized lamps and mirrors.
Lighting is so important in any design. For 2020, you can expect to see an increase in French modern and Art Deco modern lighting designs.
Instead of art, large mirrors are statement pieces that can be a focal point in an interior, like a dressing room or bathroom. They are functional pieces that act as both art and decor.
European Inspired Details
Furniture design with European-inspired detailing is trending. German and Italian influences can be found in the sloping arms of couches, knife-edge welts, metal legs, and more. Portuguese influences such as painted tiles are also making a statement. We’re seeing traditional furniture brands embracing the trend, offering European silhouettes and features for the first time.
Texture is here in a big way and showing no signs of losing popularity. From the increase in caning accents, metal grills, shattered glass, brass sabot detailing on tables, and the rough-hewn woodwork seen on today’s new furniture design, texture is the new pattern when it comes to making a visual statement.
There is a growing trend towards the use of unusual, unique pieces of furniture that we think will continue to grow in 2020. There will be pieces that create a sculptural moment, made from textural, organic fabrics such as boucle, boiled wool, canvas, sisals, and natural wood.
