Staying fashion-forward is our job. We have excellent resources within the design community. Sure, we have the latest designs, but it’s more than that. We also have the supplies and materials from leading companies who are working alongside all the trendsetters in fashion, interiors, and art. This all translates to our design abilities. We speak the language of the artist, the designer, and the buyer. We can help at almost every level, including working with interior design trends.
Just like any creative business, interior design will go through different trends over time. From the Charles Eames influence in the 1950s to the Rustic Modern style of the past few years, interior design trends are constantly evolving. There are four major trends that are coming onto the “interior design scene.” Lagom, Naturalist, Glam, and Maximalism. An easy way to create and execute a trend is through the framing of ones artwork in a space.
Here are the four latest trends we are seeing descending from the runway to the walls for 2019-2020.
Interior Design Trend: Lagom
Lagom is a Swedish word meaning “just the right amount” and is often used to mean “moderation.” The evolution of the mid-century modern migrating to Scandanavian and now softening up a bit is known as Lagom. In terms of design, it’s primarily defined as monochromatic, minimal, and soft. Lagom based on the idea of subtlety. That is to say, not too much, not too little, but “just right.” Some of the consistent qualities are linens and natural fibers, grays with industrial metal accents.
Interior Design Trend: Naturalist
This interior design idea uses naturally harvested textures and perfect imperfections to create a comfortable living space. It is considered to be therapeutic and create a cohesive sanctuary by fusing the outdoors with the indoor living area.
Interior Design Trend: Glam
This trend uses smart and flashy accents to create a unique and captivating space. Some associate this with “old Hollywood opulence” where accent pieces can be seen as “over the top,” yet balanced with traditional furniture. We are seeing dark retro jewel tones with suedes, velvet, and a dash of brass accents. This is definitely “fun, feminine, and functional.” This might be an excellent opportunity to introduce some pieces that remind you of that rustic glamour luxe look.
Interior Design Trend: Maximalism
This idea unleashes inner creativity, uses bold statement pieces, and values surrealism in decorating. This means more, more, more in terms of colors, patterns, and accent pieces. Maximalism has introduced a fun new term called “Psychotropical.” We look to combine bold geometric patterns and pop colors to make a bold statement (think…Gucci).
