Earlier this year, we made our trend predictions for 2019 and now that spring has arrived, you’re likely ready to update your space for the season. If you’re looking for some inspiration to get started, the following trends are ones you’ll see throughout the spring and into summer.
We mentioned that Art Deco would make a modern resurgence this year, and one element that fits this trend in particular is the scallop shape, which originally adorned flappers’ dresses. From furniture backings to table legs to backsplashes, this trend can be summed up in two words: curves ahead.
Shibori Shibori is a Japanese fabric dyeing technique used to create patterns. If you’ve ever tie-dyed a shirt before, this follows the same process, however shibori typically uses indigo-colored dye. You can expect to see shibori used in pillows, upholstery and other accents. If you see this dyed effect in other inky colors, it’s likely due to the influence of this Japanese art.
70s Scandinavian/Midcentury Modern If you like the simplicity of Scandinavian style or the style of midcentury modern furniture, but prefer to use more color, your moment has arrived! Think about incorporating bright colors into your existing Scandi or MCM inspired space, and not just as accent colors.
Sustainability The concept of sustainably sourced pieces or ones made with recycled materials isn’t new in itself. However, an aspect of sustainability that is growing in popularity is purchasing pieces that have a long life cycle. If you have a lot of so-called “investment pieces” in your wardrobe, this follows that same idea.
One such “investment piece” for your home is flooring. If you want to find a sustainable floor, in terms of both composition and longevity, our LVT will meet those needs!
