Design Ideas that We Love
Spending more time at home makes one realize the importance of having furniture pieces that are not only stylish and of good quality, but suitable and comfortable for daily use as well. It also gives more time to think of new ways to create a more relaxing environment for work and play.
Whether you’re looking to refurbish your entire home or simply swap your leather sofa for a new accent chair, these design ideas will help guide you in choosing furniture and furnishings that are not only fun and fashionable but also timeless.
1. Love Your Elegant Curves
Consider moving away from sharp lines and straight edges, and diving into modern furniture with curves and asymmetrical touches. This year sees a newfound love and fame for curved-back sofas, armchairs, accent chairs, and dining chairs. Quoting award-winning designer Chad James, 2020 sees a shift from “more structured, rectilinear styles toward elegant curved and asymmetrical pieces that created softer environments”.
Aside from adding elegance to your home, these curvy sofas, accent chairs and beds will give your space a homier look and a lighter feel. Added bonus: For those with kids who love playing and running around inside the home, rounder edges will avoid scrapes and bruises and prevent accidents.
2. Worry Free Performance Fabrics
For sustainability, let’s puts the spotlight on performance fabrics, which are not only specifically designed to withstand wear-and-tear for a longer period, but are easy to clean as well. Such fabrics are suitable for any room in the home. They make furniture adaptable to any function, and at the same time add to space’s aesthetic appeal. As celebrity interior designer Lonni Paul says, “[Performance fabrics] could be used in the messiest of family rooms, but also in luxurious living and dining rooms while maintaining a fashionable aesthetic.”
