  1. Various Shades of Pink
    1. We'll start to see more and more shades of soft and neutral pinks. These colors can be combined with bolder colors, like dark teal, rich green, or a bright yellow. With that being said, don't be surprised if you go to tour a house or look to make your space your own and you find more neutral pinks being present in your choices of home decor!
  2. Cozy Furniture - Specifically Cozy Beds
    1. Designers anticipate that the main trend we'll see in the bedroom is 'cocoon beds'. These are beds filled with cozy and soft fabrics from the upholstered headboard to the footboard. The idea behind this trend is that the bed should be a retreat to go and relax after a hard day at work. We can see more of this as jobs become more remote and people are spending less time at the office and more time at home.
  3. Geometry - Triangles, Hexagons, Circles - Oh, My!
    1. The importance of stylish textures, images, and drawing on various things throughout the house is on the rise. Many designers believe that fashion is striving hard to incorporate more modern and clean designs - and shapes capture that goal seamlessly. Asymmetric shapes, symmetric shapes, drawings, and MORE can be found on a lot of interior design items (furniture, especially).
  4. Natural Materials 
    1. We're not sure if you've noticed, but the demand for natural materials and textures has seen an exponential increase at the end of 2020 and is here to stay for the duration of 2021. Whether it be natural wood textures, smooth clay accents, or exposed rock or brick infused with modern designs, complex and sophisticated combinations of textures add a sense of elegance and depth to any space. Some common combinations of natural materials we are seeing more and more of include wood with quartz or marble, or clay and ceramics with concrete and metal.
  5. Rounded Shapes 
    1. Furniture pieces with soft, rounded shapes that are smooth and sleek seem to be making a return from the 1970s. However, these furniture pieces paired with the neutral or rich colors, a balance of textures, and updated spaces keep the room aesthetics much more comfortable and elegant.
  6. Metal
    1. In addition to the unexpected color schemes for furniture (soft pinks, dark and rich colors, etc.) for 2021, we see a lot of unusual metal applications. Gold, brass and blackened bronze has become popular in a lot of interior designs and layouts that we are seeing today, and this trend is here to stay for the duration of 2021.
  7. Individuality 
    1. The more time being spent at home has caused an increase in the demand for custom-made designer pieces. A lot of individuals have found immense value in pieces that are one-of-a-kind to their tastes while also providing functionality and an outlet for expressing themselves. Buyers are interested not only in the exterior of the furniture item, but the history behind the furniture piece and the meaning of it.
  8. It's the little things - seriously.
    1. Attention will be focused not only on the general style of the item, but also in the smallest of details - including the way the upholstery is stitched onto the item, the shade, and more. There might be a lot more to furniture you buy in 2021 than you think!
  9. Art Deco - Have you heard the latest?
    1. Art deco in trendy colors and designs are making their way through the 2021 year. This style embodies luxury, brightness, and brilliance through the design! Don't be surprised if you see a lot more of this in the future!
  10. Your Grandma's Armoire is in - seriously.
    1. 'Out with the old' is no longer applicable (to an extent). Antique furniture is popular not only among collectors, but now are making their way into rooms of homeowners alike - adding personality and history.
