FURNITURE OF DALTON HAS ALL YOUR FAVORITE TRENDS!
Every new calendar year provides a great opportunity to re-focus our goals and outline the months ahead. In addition to our personal and professional resolutions, we also think of ways to refresh our favorite rooms and give our homes new life! Did we mention that each year also brings incredible new furnishings, thriving trends, and exciting color choices? If you and your family stayed safe at home throughout 2020, maybe your wheels are already turning on how to spruce up the household with new pieces and incorporate new shades and tones into your interior. For added inspiration, here are a few of the 2021 New Year home trends that we can’t wait to see come to life:
Pantone Colors of 2021 – Sighting moods of contemplation, familiarity, and hope as a reflection of the state of real-world affairs, Pantone announced two 2021 colors of the year: Ultimate Gray (17-5104) and Illuminating (13-0647). These comforting shades in monochrome blankets, bed linens, pillows, drapes, and other furnishings help us maintain a measured optimism no matter what’s happening outside the home. Light gray tones help increase the visual space of smaller rooms and all grays are easy-to-match for frequent design refreshes. The Illuminating yellow tone reminds us of sunshine and gold, adding confidence, brightness and originality when used in appropriate amounts. You can try introducing this color in bold statement pieces like vases, ottomans, or another décor standout.
Layered Design - Whereas minimalistic design has thrived in the past, staying at home has put an emphasis on coziness and functionality over picture-perfect room scenes. Besides, shopping from home is safe, fun, and we want to showcase all our newest pieces! These useful layers mean more seating options for movies and relaxing, more rugs to handle foot traffic and rotate for visual interest, more blankets and pillows for snuggling, and more tables to showcase our newest purchases from Amazon. Furniture with built-in storage solutions will also be hot items in 2021 as a way to stylishly tidy up the household quickly. Overall, a mix of older pieces and new additions will provide chic comfort and visual appeal.
Mixing Metal & Wood – Following the rising trend of industrial styling, we will see more interiors use a sleek mix of wood and metal furnishings in 2021. Since industrial décor emphasizes on high ceilings, wood, metal, exposed stonework and beams, as well as neutral colors, it’s a great design style to embrace layers and incorporate Pantone’s 2021 choices. These interiors utilize a mix of modern and traditional design elements and visually represent a place to both work and live in. Along with the increase of working-at-home in 2020, this mix might be the perfect scheme to inspire productivity and contentment all year long!
Natural Fabrics & Furniture – If you love the look of wicker and rattan furniture, you will appreciate the return of woven, natural-looking furniture styles in 2021. The warmth of woven palm stems and willow twigs add warmth to indoors, outdoors, and any areas that receive ample sunlight. Whether full pieces or as details, rattan and wicker will see increased demand this year. For our fabrics, this means a shift from synthetic options like polyester, nylon, and rayon, in favor of natural, sustainable, and recycled choices like organic cotton, recycled polyester, and low-impact linen. In addition to acknowledging the growing awareness of environmental issues, these materials bring in an organic feel that’s reassuring and stylish.
Whatever home trends you’re leaning towards, let’s embrace the year ahead as a chance to enjoy our homes and craft our interiors with style, purpose, and rejuvenation. We’ve learned the importance of maximizing the space that we have and focusing on what matters the most to us. Let your home be an extension of your goals this year and we are excited to assist your design journey in any way we can: Take advantage of our Winter Refresh Sale through January 30th to jumpstart your inspired home in 2021!
