TREND PICKS FOR THE HOME 2021


As most of us are working, socialising, exercising from our homes, we are adjusting our homes for comfort, wellness & sustainability.

VISUAL ESCAPISM With the lack of travel, creating a space where one can escape from modern day life is getting high on demand for 2021. Green interiors, natural textures & colours, soft & cosy furnishings, oversized sofas & global accessories will be a must for interiors. Be on trend with ancient Grecian influences-stone organic shaped furniture & ceramics, inspired by the curves of the body.

CANE & RATTAN

Rattan & cane are natural materials and when woven create a light, soft feel.

No surprise they have been around in interiors for some time now. Carrying on the trend for 2021, cane & rattan will be seen in all types of furniture, chairs, and sideboards.

INDOOR PLANTS

Not only natural material furniture and decoration are a big trend in 2021 but also plants themselves. Indoor plants like Monstera and Aloe Vera will instantly bring nature in & improve the air quality. Pot stylishly with aged pottery or terracotta, to capture this seasons trend.



LUXURY VINTAGE & CURVED FURNITURE

The Vintage style has been popular for a couple of years already, however for 2021, the focus will be on high-end second hand furniture - luxe interior pieces. Adding luxurious vintage pieces to your home means adding something unexpected, that tells a story. Pick pieces that are soft, circular & organic shaped, emphasising our desire to live in harmony with nature.

Upholstery textures such as boucle, are the perfect warm choice to be on trend.


COLOUR ALERT

This year, Pantone took the unusual step of naming two colours as their shades of the year: Illuminating, a zingy yellow, and Ultimate Gray, a pale grey. The selection of two independent colours highlight how different elements come together to express a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting, conveying the idea that it’s not about one color or one person, it’s about more than one,' says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
