Tips from Our Resident Designer… 2019 Furniture Trends

 2019 Furniture Trends

If you’re looking for an easy home makeover or a simple room refresh, we’re looking at the top furniture trends for 2019 so you can update any space in style. Take note of these furniture trends so you can realize your home in up to date style that’s on trend for the year ahead and beyond.

The thing to keep in mind when it comes to furniture trends is that they’re nowhere near as ephemeral and fleeting as fashion trends are, so when you do bring in on-trend décor, make sure it’s worth your time and investment so you can get the best use for the long run.


Jewel Tones

Lush jewel tones evoke elegance and opulence; if you want to add a regal feel to your room, then jewel tones are a requisite way to go. As furniture trends go, classic jewel tones are pretty safe as they can be styled up or down and have the feeling of longevity about them.

To make the furniture trend your own, look for brilliantly hued furnishings and extras even in the smallest of doses as jewel tones pair well with just about any design style and when mixed transitionally, can help to create a chicly layered, relaxed look.


Velvet Upholstery

There is no denying that velvet has made a huge comeback and for good reason thanks to its silky and sumptuous feel. It’s a plush fabric and it’s certainly dramatic – velvet upholstery will make an elevated impact in any room while making it feel all the more grown up. To take the trend up a notch, combine jewel tones and velvet to make for the perfect decadent seating arrangement for 2019.

The key here is to look for furnishings that boast modern silhouettes to keep the look fresh and not too vintage or retro-inspired.


Matte Finishes

When you think of matte furniture, you may immediately think of white or black – but the latest furniture trends 2019 are bucking that feel for the unexpected. Inky blue, forest green and deep grey are refreshing takes on matte finished furnishings at the moment thanks to their fresh feel. Ditch standard white and black and make an impact with a bold, however, muted color.

Nice to the touch, matte finishes can be more challenging to maintain and keep clean so make sure that you leave matte finishes and fabrications out of high-traffic areas to ensure a long lifespan.


High-Gloss Finishes

High-gloss finishes experienced a bit of a hiatus in 2018, but they are back in full force for 2019 furniture trends. The reflective nature of a high-gloss finish lightens and brightens a room by bouncing around light. High-gloss finishes lend your interior design an ultra-modern feel; whether that’s in your kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.

High-gloss finishes also pair well with matte surfaces for the ultimate mix. That said, you can also bring in high-shine items more affordably via metallic picture frames and crystal accents.


Built-In Banquettes

Built-in banquettes are luxurious and make your dining area design a little bit different. Why not use some of the colors and prints we have been seeing in 2019 furniture trends to make an impactful seating area around your table.

Plus, you can use the area underneath your built-in for storage while possibly adding value to your home’s resale potential.
