What 2020 furniture trends can we expect? I headed to Seigerman’s Furniture and Design Center in Farmingdale to find out! Seigerman’s is a fantastic furniture store that also has a design center for trade professionals. It has quickly become one of my favorite places to bring my clients. They hosted an event showcasing a few manufacturers and summarizing the trends they saw at the Highpoint Market. The presentations were informative and enjoyable. I was so happy that I was invited and able to be there.
Design Trends Have Shifted
This year we will see a significant shift in furniture design trends. 2020 will guide us away from the straight-line, minimalist trends that we have been seeing and reintroduce curves and embellishments.
One of the 2020 furniture trends you will see is curved furniture
Curvy is in! Curves can be found in crescent-shaped sofas, barrel-shaped chairs, rounded headboards. But not only upholstery is getting curvy. Case-goods trends show a shift from straight lines too. Bombay chests make a reappearance. Did you know Bombay means curved in French?
You will see metal details on furniture as another one of the 2020 furniture trends
Furniture trends follow fashion trends, and it is so evident in the addition of metal details. We have been seeing metal on heels of shoes for a while now. Metal details transferring over to furniture is AMAZING! Such a smart and classy look which dresses up everything from bed frames, upholstery to case goods. Most of the time, the metal shown is gold. You will see in occasional tables as well. Gold is classic and here to stay.
In 2020 you will see mottled furniture as a furniture trend
When I think of mottled, I always think of car interiors, and never in a pleasing way. However, after seeing it on occasional tables, dressers, and credenzas, I have a new appreciation. It adds texture, depth, and interest! I can’t believe I LOVE it!
In 2020 you will see marbleized furniture as a furniture trend
Marbleized furniture is a nod towards traditional and classic design. Expect to see it on dresser tops and occasional tables.
Another trend for furniture in 2020 is acrylic furniture
Acrylic furniture is chic and can work in virtually any room. Since it adds very little visual weight, it allows other design elements to be the star, while taking on a functional role.
In 2020 you will see swivel chairs
I have always been a fan of the swivel. Who doesn’t love its flexibility? Also, they are usually extremely comfortable chairs. Swivel chairs will be popular for dining and accent chairs.
In 2020 you will see shaped ottomans as a trend
Round, square, and hexagon-shaped ottomans are hot in 2020. Clustering a few together is also a trend to expect.
In 2020 you will see over-sized hardware trending
Much more attention has been given to cabinet knobs and drawer pulls. In fact, hardware has become a defining design element. In 2020 expect to see over-sized hardware with a significant impact on its furniture piece.
Seigermans did a great job presenting these design trends to the trade. If you have not been to their furniture and interior design center, treat yourself and stop in. Everything shown in these pictures is available there. Also, the showroom is full of breathtaking displays, and the customer service is unsurpassed.
