To make yourself stand out from the crowd, it is crucial for you to choose a theme that works best for you while ensuring that your style does not seem outdated against time. Thankfully, with research and guides from designers around the world, we managed to sniff out the top furniture trends seen this year that might be here to stay. Check them out below!


Contemporary pink furniture and décor at MaMa Kelly restaurant, Amsterdam

While the thought of having pink furniture might sound appalling and risky to some, it pairs well with plenty of colours such as grey, baby blue, tones of browns and even gold. Shades of pink, if done tastefully, can accommodate and accentuate the space provided. Pink also goes well with plenty of themes such as modern, minimalist, or edgy. As a neutral colour, different shades of pink can lend a soft touch when combined with the right elements.


Furniture with soft curves chosen for Jigger & Pony, Singapore

Taking inspiration from the 70s, it seems like furniture pieces with soft, rounded shapes are here to stay. These pieces of furniture can look elegant both as a centrepiece or an accent piece. It takes away the sharp corners of a space and instantly makes the room look cosier. Rounded corners of a space or furniture are also a lot easier on the eyes making it more welcoming. Circles on their own carry plenty of meaning — they protect, confine, offer safety and are often seen as graceful shapes in graphic design. Perhaps, this is why, when taken apart and placed into various elements of a space or furniture, those meanings are brought over and translated in their own definition.

Neutral tones are actively used as a background to make a space look brighter and bigger while also complimenting contrasting shades of colours. Tones such as French Vanilla and Cream can bring light to any space with little work done while expanding and making the room seem bigger than it actually is. The best places to use these tones? Designers often use these soft natural-looking tones in nurseries, kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms or anywhere you might want to make the space feel a little less claustrophobic.

While colours, tones and rounded shapes can lead to a softer touch to your space, including furniture pieces with a little geometry can add some eccentricity and leave a lasting impression on your visitors. Geometric centre and accent pieces will easily make a statement by means of their shape, lines and graphic flat colours. One piece of advice designers give when working with geometric pieces? Have fun with it! After all, these pieces are brought in to break the monotony of a space and to give a unique perspective to the room.


However, at the end of the day, balance is key when adding geometry to your space. It is important not to include too many geometric pieces in your area or else everything will get drowned out. Whatever theme or style you might be after, remember that simply adding or removing a piece of furniture, could make or break your space. So, take your time to plan, take note of how each piece compliments each other, and think about the function of the space you are working on.
