THE BEST INTERIOR TRENDS OF 2019 SET TO STAY
20 Nov 2019
Celebrate the end of the decade with Modish Living’s standout hits of the year. From spider leg dining room tables and party-friendly central pedestal tables to reclaimed wood furniture, bamboo lighting and all things natural, this collection brings together the most lusted-after items of the year that are going nowhere.
Sustainability, plastic-free, cruelty-free, climate change and recycling has been a topic of conversation at every dinner table this year and this majority view of the world has influenced the way we style our homes.
Light, natural and warming, Modish Living’s Natural Lighting collection brightens up any room, from dining rooms to bedrooms.
Bringing nature inside and using sustainable or recycled materials is a trend that will carry over into 2020. Natural materials, such as bamboo, rattan and sustainable wood was king when it came to furniture and homeware this year and the trend to connect with nature continues to capture our imagination. Modish Living’s new Bamboo Lighting collection was a huge hit that is predicted to stay throughout the year ahead.
INCEY WINCEY SPIDER
The desire to connect, whether that’s with nature or friends and family saw us entertaining more and opening-up our homes. Wholesome lunches and dinners called for large tables. As well as extending dining tables a trend for tables with a central pedestal or spider leg emerged. Stylish with a distinct design feature, the positioning of the leg gives plenty of scope for flexible seating options.
REUSED AND RECLAIMED
Nothing beats something new, but our current world of reducing waste and buying items that will last has influenced our purchasing decisions in the home. This is confirmed with the increasing popularity of reclaimed wood furniture. Reclaimed wood rescued from old buildings and warehouses and skillfully restored by master craftspeople retains a character and personality that new wood can’t compare with. From tables to sideboards, beds to chest of drawers, this perennial favourite at Modish Living is predicted to continue to be big in 2020.
PLUSH HOME COMFORTS
The fabric of the year had to be velvet. Sumptuously seductive, velvet armchairs, sofas and dining chairs in jewel tones smoothed, scalloped and pleated its way into homes, and the trend is here to stay.
