Home furnishing trends, can we talk?

After visiting the International Furniture Fair at the Jacob K. Javits Center a few weeks ago, I have come to some conclusions regarding the latest, greatest themes in Home Furnishings.

Faux Wood Lamp Shade

Wood, wood and more wood.  Unfinished wood of every dimension was a hit at the show.  Utilized in innovative ways to make this old standard look updated and interesting.

Wood Cutting Board by Canoe

Cardboard and paper products.  Making furniture and lighting out of paper is a way to embrace the “recycle-reuse theme” in a fresh way.  Hassocks made of corrugated cardboard were front and center in this trend.

Wall Shelves by Stephen Hugo

Brights in a variety of materials including plastic, wood and resin.  This trend is refreshing to say the least. Tying in culture with current design is a nice twist, making the usual “unusual.

Bedding by West Elm

Bold floral patterns in stencil-like form.  Prints are still kicking and look revived once more.  Two and three color cutouts make this category a trend to be reckoned with.

Pillows by Thomas Paul

Nature themes abound.  Birds, bees, butterflies and all living creatures in between.  Paired with new green, these subjects look alive in home furnishings.
