Furniture trends 2024: the main interior design trends
In the interior design sector, the keyword for 2024 is eco-sustainability. In addition to a careful choice of materials, it will also be essential to make the best use of the available spaces, make targeted purchases and convey a sense of nature also on the aesthetic side. Let’s discover together what will be the main furniture trends for 2024, on a journey through colors, shapes, materials and styles!
We are sure of one thing: in 2024 there will be no fear of daring! In a mix of colors, patterns, materials and decorative styles, each home will become even more unique and special. Nature will have a special place, which will find the right place in every room: from the bedroom textiles, in colors that recall the earth, to the green plants in the living room, capable of instilling serenity and peace. But let’s get to the heart of the question: what are the trendiest furniture styles this year?
- Minimalism. If 2023 has taught us anything, it is certainly to eliminate the superfluous and transform our homes into small oases of peace. It is therefore not surprising if minimalism in a Zen key stands out among the furnishing trends of 2024, characterized by light woods, oriental prints, neutral colors and green plants.
- Marine style. Declined in its most current variant, also known as global coastal, this style immediately brings a holiday air to any environment. It recalls the atmosphere of slow summer days and the simplicity of fishing villages: white reigns undisputed, in various shades, embellished with rattan details and decorations in various shades of blue.
- Mix & match. In 2024, the idea of combining even apparently opposite and incompatible styles will be completely cleared through customs. We thus see the blossoming of looks such as the rustic vogue, in which family furniture is combined with modern furnishings, and the glamorous vintage, where period elements are combined with ultra-modern and extravagant materials.
- Boho chic. Now a great trend for several years, the boho style is dressed in new bright and bright colors. On a neutral base, red and yellow textiles, wall prints in pastel colors and creative patterns of ethnic influence stand out. The result is a mixture of elements typical of the bohemian style.
Interior design enthusiasts will have noticed it: in recent years, furnishings with rounded, soft and sinuous shapes are back in fashion. Typical of slightly retro styles, they also find the right space in modern and contemporary environments. For 2024, the rounded design will influence everything: from sofas to carpets, from coffee tables to wall mirrors.
But it doesn’t stop there! After 2023, many have had to reinvent the spaces at home, creating corners dedicated to work from home, the gym and relaxation. Hence, space-saving furniture flourishes, ready to transform when needed: a coffee table opens and becomes a desk, a sofa becomes a comfortable bed to watch a movie, and so on.
Not only the shapes, but also the textiles soften. In 2024 velvet is back in fashion, capable of making any environment elegant: it will find its perfect location in the living room, combined with leather, cotton and silk. Although it may seem like a material with an old-fashioned look, it adapts very well to minimal or Scandinavian-style environments, especially declined in lighter colors. For an eccentric touch, we recommend decorative cushions in fuchsia velvet, perhaps to be placed on a dark blue sofa.
But it won’t be all about velvet! As we said at the beginning of our article, sustainability will play a very important role throughout 2024. Most of the materials with which we will dress our homes will be eco-compatible, such as wood, glass, jute and rattan. Green light also to recycled raw materials, ecological paints, recycled furniture.
The color palette of 2024 will feature shades reminiscent of nature. At the base of everything there are neutral colors, which never go out of fashion: ivory, beige, gray… these shades can be combined with each other to create a monochromatic look, or combined with different shades capable of lighting and emphasizing them. Particular attention is paid to carpets, which with their nuances become innovators of the mood of an entire room.
With red, electric blue, fuchsia or yellow details, a super colorful pop environment can be recreated in an instant. Green light also for different shades of green, which evoke the calm of country meadows or the mystery of woods and forests: in this case, we recommend combining them with different shades of beige and brown. If you prefer a minimal look, however, the ideal is to insert black details with clean and essential lines. Any examples? Metal bookcases, mirrors and small decorations with a modern design.
Always with a view to sustainability, the trendy decorations for the home in 2024 are in the name of recycling and handmade. Small handmade objects by local artisans find space on shelves, consoles and bookcases; vintage dinner sets bring a touch of originality to the kitchen; pieces of modern art, such as retro-style telephones, create a unique atmosphere at the entrance or in the living room. The secret? Don’t be afraid to dare, even when mixing styles that are apparently too different from each other!
