In April the Milan Furniture Fair celebrated its 56th year of setting new trends in home décor. As reported by The Wall Street Journal, there were 5 trends that stood out as Best-in-Show this year.
“Rust in the Wind” – Shades of rust, oxblood, and cinnabar. Shown with deep greens and mustard shades, the trio evokes a sophisticated earthiness.
“Lacquered Up” – Products finished in lacquer, or synthetic lacquer-look.
“Fashionable Furniture” – Furnishings with clothing fixtures such as straps, buckles, buttons and embroidery.
“Fun Home” – Home décor items with a genuine sense of playfulness such as lollipop pendant lights, or chairs with fanciful scalloped edging. Light and whimsical while maintaining elegance.
“Sexy Sofas” – Couches with interesting, often asymmetrical shapes that can be configured any way to suit the space.
