You want to furnish your home with unique and beautiful pieces, yet you don’t want to break the bank. Where can you find pieces that are well-made but still on-trend?
If you’re shopping for your new home or are just looking to upgrade your current decor, you’ve got plenty of options. Our guide to trending furniture for 2021 will inspire you and show you what styles are going to be big for years to come.
A desk that folds up into a cabinet. A table that has storage on the ends.
Pieces that have more than one use are big for 2021 and beyond. Besides, who doesn’t like furniture that can save space by doing more than one thing?
Welcome to the Jungle
It’s a jungle in here — inside your home, that is. Wild patterns have come home and are taking over rugs, throw pillows, curtains, prints, wallpaper, and more.
Think monstera leaf prints or fun animal fur patterns as accent pieces. You don’t have to cover your entire home in palm tree prints; try it out on a pillow or side table before you commit.
Minimalist vs. Maximalist
Jungle patterns are part of the maximalist decor style. However, that doesn’t mean that minimalism is dead.
The sleek, color-neutral look of minimalism is still trending yet maximalists are becoming more and more trendy.
Play with Paint
Before you figure out what to put within your four walls, you need to consider what color their painted. Interior paint color trends for 2021 are increasingly bold which can affect your furniture decisions.
Dark colors, like navy, sage, or charcoal, are emerging as a new neutral. If you choose a strong color for your walls, your furniture should act as a complimentary accent and not overwhelm the senses.
Mid-century style is still going strong. Don’t throw out any atomic-age pieces just yet and instead look for ways to update existing furniture.
Hairpin legs, starburst designs, and sleek lines are all hallmarks of this intriguing style. If you’re bored with your mid-century furniture, try sprucing it up with a touch of bright paint or even add some peel and stick wallpaper to it.
Weathered wood, burnished metals, concrete accents, and heavy textures are key to creating an industrial-inspired look in your home. That doesn’t mean that it’s a cold look; there are ways to warm it up.
Metal furniture can be eye-catching and topped with something soft, like a velvet cushion, to add more warmth. Industrial accents can seem harsh if you group them together, so keep it to a few statement pieces to work with this look.
