You can choose from a wide variety of furniture styles and themes when decorating residential interiors this year, but there are 8 furniture trends that stand out as being particularly exciting. Let’s discuss 8 of 2017’s most inspiring furniture trends.
1. Paul Evans Disco Era Furniture
As far as collectible vintage furniture goes, the American furniture scene has a new darling: It’s Paul Evans, a departed designer whose more remarkable pieces have been selling for hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction in the recent past. Interesting textural patterns distinguish Evans’ pieces from those of other furniture designers. The New York Times reports that noteworthy personalities such as Tommy Hilfiger, Lenny Kravitz, Gwen Stefani and Oribe all own pieces designed by Evans.
2. Velvet Furniture
Velvet furniture was the top item on the list in a recent 2017 furniture trend report that Zillow Digs and the New York Times made available. Velvet sofas, throw pillows and curtains are expected to be popular furnishings this year.
3. Vibrant Jewel-Toned Accent Pieces
According to the trend report posted at the New York Times, jewel tones such as sapphire blue and emerald green are an emerging trend, and gray is on its way out. However, if you already have new-ish gray furnishings at home, you can pair them with new jewel toned pieces instead of replacing your gray items. In any case, we do expect to be seeing plenty of bright-colored furnishings around this year.
4. Plush Steampunk-Inspired Furniture
The trend report posted at the New York Times website also gives us the news that elegant Victorian-inspired furniture is trending up. It’s taking the place of industrial style furniture, which they say is trending down. Look for steampunk inspired pieces made of leather or other sumptuously plush materials.
5. Marble Décor Items
Marble isn’t just for kitchen countertops. You might see it pop up in a variety of other surfaces including tabletops, vases and serving dishes.
6. Patterned Tufting on Bed Headboards
In general, headboards are trendy right now. The most popular style of headboard is covered with fabric and features interesting tufted patterns.
7. Tall Kitchen Tables
The kitchen table has evolved to new heights, literally. If you want to have a trend-conscious kitchen table, make it one of the new gathering tables rather than a standard height kitchen table.
8. Luxury Patio Furniture
The outdoor living craze is still going strong as of early 2017. Luxury patio furniture is in strong demand for cozying up backyard living spaces like decks, patios and picnic areas.
These are 8 of the most inspiring current furniture trends for 2017. Whether you’re furnishing a new space or redesigning your current abode, any of these 8 niches would be a great place to start looking for ideas and inspiration.
