2017 Furniture Trends: Vintage Appeal
Like 2016, pieces with vintage appeal remain popular in 2017. Look for furnishings with classic charm such as turned legs, planked tabletops, and antiqued hardware. Distressed and eased finishes make this one of our favorite furniture trends of 2017. With a “rescued” look, the Lynwood Sideboard is reminiscent of a thrift store find with its weathered, white-washed finish and traditional details. The Irwin Coffee Table is made from a genuine repurposed Indian ox cart wheel and is truly a work of art. Popular in farmhouse styled homes and cottage-inspired spaces alike, vintage appeal is here to stay!
2017 Furniture Trends: Green Accents
PANTONE announced the Color of the Year 2017, Greenery. Symbolic of new beginnings, this zesty lime shade is one of the hottest hues of the moment, however, muted versions of green are also fashionable. To add a bit of this stylish new trend to your space, consider adding pops of green with home accents. The Titi Vase is made of blown glass in greenery, and the Oliver Vases sport a softer olive finish. The Holmes TV Stand stands out in burnished jade and will lend your space the perfect amount of on-trend green. Read more about how to decorate with green here.
2017 Furniture Trends: Dark Finishes
For 2017, wooden furniture with dark finishes is going to be all the rage. Dark finishes add elegance to any space and add a modern contrast to the popular distressed pieces in many contemporary homes. The Cottage Counter Height Table is one of our top picks, with a warm cherry finish and convenient pedestal storage.
2017 Furniture Trends: Floral Patterns
Add a bit of wit and whimsy with furniture and home accents that boast floral patterns. Looking to the past, granny-inspired florals bring color and drama to any living space in 2017. Whether bright and bold or soft and sweet, floral prints are on point for the New Year. Look for rugs, sofas, accent chairs, and other accessories with blooming motifs. Some of our New Year picks are the Dahlia Chair, the Segovia Vase Group, or the Callie Vases.
2017 Furniture Trends: Luxurious Organics
Furniture designers are using organic materials that have a luxurious feel for 2017. Think uneven marble tops, weaved rattan baskets, petrified wood pieces, and exposed grain furnishings and accessories. The Teak Root Bowl or the Carolina Tray can be placed on a shelf or table to create a refined and natural look. For a true heirloom original, try the Java Barrel Bench, made of reclaimed timbers and zinc barrels.
2017 Furniture Trends: Velvet Upholstery
Get luxe in 2017 with velvet upholstery and textiles. Whether you choose to add soft throw pillows, a romantic comforter set, or go totally elegant with a tufted couch, make sure to do it with velvet. The Cricket Accent Chair looks regal in avocado green velvet upholstery and will bring a refined vibe to your living space.
2017 Furniture Trends: Mixed Metals
Metallics are making their rounds this New Year, and a fun way to incorporate them into your home is by mixing up the shine! Gold accents, silver hardware, brass nailheads, and iron details can harmoniously live together in a single room and add a hint of elegance to any space. The Aurora 10 Drawer Chest features a brushed metal finish, while the Campaign Accent Table shimmers, combining a silver leaf base with an antique mirrored top. Read more about mixing metals here.
2017 Furniture Trends: Upholstered Beds
Upholstered beds are a 2017 “do.” Effortlessly elevate your bedroom’s style by getting rid of a dated wooden headboard and replacing it with a piece donning stylish fabric. Many of the most popular styles of upholstered beds for 2017 feature button tufting, nailhead details, as well as elegant silhouettes. Our top pick is the Stockholm Upholstered Bed. This piece spotlights a sleigh bed design and many on-trend style elements.
2017 Furniture Trends: Blue and White
Reporting from the top home fashion markets in the country, Furniture Row buyers tell the Front Door that we will be seeing a lot of blue and white furnishings and accessories for 2017. Indigos, navies, and sky blues seamlessly blend with ivories, creams, and bright whites to create a look that redefines sophistication. Recently partnering with Joanna Gaines, Furniture Row now sells her new line of Magnolia Home rugs. The Emmie Kay Navy and Ivory Rug is spot on the blue and white home decorating trend.
