5 Design Trends That Make Your Living Room Look Stunning

The living room is one of the most important rooms in your home. This is where you welcome guests and spend quality time with family and friends. It’s an ideal place to relax, unwind and entertain.

Your living room should be a reflection of who you are as a person. It’s the first impression that people get when they enter your home, so it needs to be stylish and comfortable.

trend #1: popping colors

Color is important in interior design, and it's not just about choosing the right shade to match your sofa. It can also be used to create a mood or feeling in a room, which is why some designers use color schemes that are consistent throughout the home.

But there are also times when color is used to create contrast, with one room featuring bright reds and pinks while another has more subdued tones. This can be done to create an eye-catching focal point in your home, or simply to make a room feel more vibrant and inviting.

Master example: in our showroom, you will find a blue B&B Italia Camaleonda , an orange B&B Italia Tufty Time, and a green/blue Cassina Soriana armchair. Also take a look at the Acerbis range , including the striking Sheraton chest of drawers and Storet wardrobe .

trend #2: multifunctional furniture

Multifunctional furniture is a great way to save space in your small apartment or house. By having one piece of furniture that serves multiple purposes, you can get rid of other items that are taking up too much space in your room.

Multifunctional furniture is also an excellent way to save money when it comes to interior decorating because it allows you to buy fewer items for your home renovation project. If you want to make over an entire room with new furnishings, then choosing one piece of multifunctional furniture will be much cheaper than buying all new pieces individually.

Master example: the Knoll Grashopper can be used as a desk as well as a dining table.

trend #3: unique, artisanal products

The unique things that surround us are a reflection of our personality. These are mostly handmade objects, both old and new.

Made by real people, in an age where we have become aware of our vulnerability as real people. Once modest objects such as a wooden milking chair are more popular than ever.

Master example: the products of Brdr. Krüger in our showroom, such as the Arv chairs and the Jari coffee tables, exude traditional craftsmanship.

trend #4: recycling is the new craze

The world is changing and so is the way we live. Recycling is becoming a trend, which means that sustainable and environment-friendly designs are not only a choice but also a necessity. When it comes to your home, you want to make sure that it's as eco-friendly as possible.

Materials such as cork and linen have been 'in' for some time. More and more manufacturers are looking for materials to replace plastic and other harmful substances.

Master example: the Tip Ton RE by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby is the first Vitra chair made from recycled plastic, obtained from shampoo bottles or yoghurt pots from German households.

trend #5: the seventies are here to stay

The Seventies were a time of experimentation, rebellion and discovery. The pop culture of the decade was full of experimental ideas and new forms of expression. Not only did this translate into fashion but also into interior design.

Now the 1970s are back in full force. The wall-to-wall carpet has been out of the question for so long that it feels completely fresh again. Your own wallpaper with patterns from the Op Art is possible again.

Master example: Since 2018, Arflex has relaunched the opulent Marenco sofa, a design by Mario Marenco from 1970.
