The next big thing in furniture

 

Daily we wake up to a new trend, from fashion, music to design, furniture is no exception to this. So, what’s new on the furniture scene? If you're on the lookout for a home makeover or some home decor ideas, read on for some hot trends you might want to consider for an updated style.

Minimalist and modern decor styles have steadily been on the rise, as is painted furniture. Perhaps the most exciting trend in furniture has to be customized furniture. Being able to go to a store, pick the color, shape, and size of the piece of furniture you want adds an even more personal touch to your decor and home. We’ve all seen something that we like and thought, if only it was this way and not that way. Wouldn’t it be great to customize furniture this way? To have that corner suite have the longer side on the left side instead of the right as advertised, to get your headboard in black instead of grey? The list is endless. Furniture customization is the new thing when it comes to interior decorating and most brands are jumping on this wagon. Do you like your couches darker, your bed longer? With custom pieces, you are in control and get to determine so many crucial design aspects for each furniture piece.

With this in mind, we at Rochester understand that when it comes to furniture, one size certainly does not fit all. That’s why we have made it easier for you to get onto this trend, by adding a customization  tab on our website, which allows you to choose from a variety of colours, upholstery finishes, and even the facing configuration of your daybed or corner suites so you can design the furniture of your dreams at the click of a button

In addition to customized furniture, here are other trends to note:

  • While it's not necessarily new, minimal design has been doing the rounds. These furniture pieces are especially great if you have a smaller place as they create the illusion of a bigger space. The sleek and clean designs of the Jobi couch, for example, the loft dining chair, and the Lexus coffee table or Seattle side table add a sophisticated touch to your living room while saving you space.
  • Multifunctional pieces - furniture pieces that are not only functional but versatile as well. Here we are looking at couches that double up as beds - the sleeper couches, storage bases, storage pieces that can also be used for seating like Cotswold kist, and any other pieces that you can use for multiple things.
  • Provence headboards, with their plush design and freedom to customize to your liking. You can choose from a variety of styles including the popular Diamond headboard or opt for a more streamlined look with the Tuscany headboard.

Whatever your preference, we hope these pointers have been helpful in helping you determine your next home decor style.
