5 furniture trends for 2016

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are in the midst of an exciting and creative period in interior design and furniture making and it will be an interesting year for furniture trends. Natural wood was a key trend in 2015 and is likely to continue to feature in many furniture and home designs in the year ahead. It is ideally suited to minimalist styling, the current 70s style trend and the move towards more tailor-made fitted furnishings.

Here are our 5 top furniture trends for 2016


Formica and walnut desk

A pop of colour can transform a room and lift a neutral decorating scheme to a dramatic new level. If you have muted shades for your walls and fabrics why not add some depth and interest with a colourful piece of Formica furniture? Formica UK has an extensive colour range and we can make our Formica and walnut desk in any one of them.

Fitted Furniture

There’s no better way to maximise space than with fitted storage and shelving, especially in small or awkwardly shaped rooms. A bespoke fitted bedroom is the ultimate luxury and the perfect way to create a calm, tidy space to unwind at the end of a busy day.

Bespoke Furniture

Tailor-made furniture is designed to match your living space, both aesthetically and practically. Bespoke furniture is a huge trend, particularly for kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms but it is also becoming increasingly popular for home offices and playrooms.

Retro Styling

Art Deco Kithcen

Flashback furniture is a huge trend and one that will really come into its own in 2016 as the Seventies revival continues. Mid century styling is minimalist and adaptable, making it ideally suited to the modern home. Art Deco style, which inspired our Art Deco kitchen design (pictured), is another retro trend that never seems to go out of fashion.

Dual purpose

Hall Mirror and Tray

Loft living demands careful and stylish use of space. For a clutter free environment, dual purpose home accessories and furniture are well worth the investment. Our Cavetto hall mirror and tray is a great example of style and space-saving practicality in action.
