Curves, texture, animal prints and bold statement pieces are all the rage as we embark on a new decade of interior design inspiration. We scoured the interior design world to curate a few of the newest trends for 2020.
Curved shapes in upholstered pieces like sofas, divans, and occasional chairs are being reimagined in undulating, and sometimes asymmetrical designs. In 2020, rounded is the new right angle, according to the Wall Street Journal. “Moving away from the geometric shapes of the recent past, there was a strong emergence of softened corners, round legs, curved backs,” said Denise Morrison, a designer in Newport Beach, CA. Many vendors such as Worlds Away have introduced tables (pictured to the left) integrating curves.
When it comes to making a visual statement, texture is the new pattern. According to Real Homes, texture is increasingly being used to add interest to rooms, beyond color. Layering up beautiful textures and weaves in the same, or very similar hues offers a different approach to decorate a room. Contrasting colors also work well like this ensemble from Pom Pom at Home. In living rooms, adding cushions and blankets are key, however in other rooms, plant prints and knick knacks offer perfect ways to accessorize.
Sustainability and environmentally-friendly designs are always trending. Paradoxically, so are animal prints. Use animal skins on chairs, tabletops and armoire fronts or on handsome decorator boxes. Faux is the way to go like this fur from DV Kap.
Bold Statement Pieces
Furniture with soul, craftsmanship, history as well as heirloom pieces can create bold room appeal. According to Elle Décor, curved sofas and upholstered furnishings can anchor an office or living room such as this Noir desk.
