5 New Trends in Wood Furniture for 2018
Recognising that it doesn’t just serve to transform your space into a dated country cottage, interior designers remain enchanted with the prospects of wood furniture in 2018. Wood furniture is both contemporary and versatile, able to complement a plethora of modern interior styles.
But how should you incorporate wood into your home décor? Here is our list of 5 new trends in wood furniture for 2018:
- Earthy Colour Tones
Taking inspiration from the outdoors, painted dark green wood furniture is creeping in to our homes, warming up our interiors in preparation for the coming winter months. Cosy dark green furniture can be effortlessly complemented with pale solid wood accents, or even contrasted with neighbouring natural dark wood units, creating a timeless aesthetic to stand out in the new year.
- Rich, Dark Wood
Inspired by Baroque-period sensationalism, rich, dark wood furniture careers back into fashion in 2018. A compelling addition to both contemporary and rustic interiors, dark wood furniture will command attention by oozing grandeur and magnificence. For a modern home, effortlessly offset your dark wood piece with pale beige accents or light grey stone features to craft a décor that’s cutting-edge. For a more traditional look, create a warm environment by surrounding your dark wood furniture with dim lights and deep red accents.
- Wooden Accents
Offsetting the overwhelmingly pale colours and shiny surfaces of contemporary décor, expect to find wooden furniture pieces as the centrepiece amongst minimally-designed interiors. Surrounded by technology, solid wood furniture such as stools, coffee tables, and cupboards can refreshingly welcome the outdoors into an otherwise unrelentingly metropolitan décor.
- Reclaimed Wood
Interior design trends have embraced frugality and recycling movements in the past year, and 2018 is set to expand these horizons into the realm of wood furniture. This comes as no surprise, seeing as reclaimed wood has an unparalleled aesthetic. Beautifully knotted and authentically textured, reclaimed wood will defiantly feature in the stylish homes of 2018, from feature walls to contemporary seating.
- Rustic Home Interiors
Forget wooden accents and feature pieces, rustic interiors rely on an array of wooden furniture to complete their authentic charm. Inspired by country farmhouses and mountainous log-cabins, rustic interiors are impressively elegant and versatile. Expect a range of different wood types and colours, accented with weathered metals, cowhide rugs, and antler wall-features, rustic interiors offer a step into nature and an escape from urbanity.
