The new trends in furniture styles are in full swing, and if you are looking for something new, you will want to pay attention to what the high-end residential furniture market is saying. Overscaled and overstuffed pieces are becoming a thing of the past, but you won’t be sacrificing comfort with the new looks.
The use of traditional styles while adding a modern twist will instantly bring a room up to date. The wing chair is more popular than ever, but today’s style softens that wing into a slight curve that rounds into the back. Some wing chairs are designed more minimally with a shallow, straight line. Other traditional looks, such as a camelback, are being utilized more for their ability to add height to the seating area, but are subtly minimized to get away from the old Chippendale style.
The arms of sofas are getting smaller and more tailored, while not eating up so much seating space. You can still sink into the sofa without getting lost in the cushions, as styles are taking on a more tailored look while still using luxurious materials. Overall depths of upholstered pieces are becoming less ominous, helping you get the elephant out of the room. The old styles were so oversized that they took over the space.
Interior designers are empowering us to use more color, pattern, and texture in our upholstery selections. When you visit the showrooms at Hickory Furniture Mart, notice how a sofa may be a solid texture, juxtaposed by fabulously patterned chairs that anchor the color scheme. Don’t be afraid to draw attention with a patterned fabric or a pop of color. Traditional colors, like tan, beige, brown, and cream on your larger pieces set a perfect canvas to throw in a trend as an accent.
At Hickory Furniture Mart, our well-known North Carolina furniture retailers have their fingers on the pulse of the new upholstery trends. While shopping with us, you will be amazed by the mix of traditional with modern lines, and the attention to detail.
