Apartment furniture trends – August 2022

Make sure you love the space you’re in is all that really counts! Here are some insights from Kiana Furniture on the new furnishing trends which might help you to create some drama without making your rooms feel busy and cluttered.

Colors:  Whites will take a back seat in the upcoming months, it’s all about natural colours this coming season. Browns, caramel, earthy tones, and colour palette close to the hues you’d find in nature will be seen more. Colour brown is seeing a major resurgence thanks to its calming and warm qualities creating a sense of peace, connection, and organization. This colour represents simplicity, comfort, and a sense of true belonging, so guests will always feel welcome in your homes. Browns easily compliment many other colours, some of the best combinations you can create are chocolate brown with green, blue, gold, copper, brass, white and even other shades of brown.

Textures: Texture is the thing that makes a room pop.  The organic quality of stone, wood and fabric bring in the warmth and calmness as they are close to nature. Different textures can hugely affect the overall feel of a space, in the same way warm and cool colours do. Rough textures can make a space feel intimate, rustic, and grounded, while smoother surfaces tend to add a modern, sleek and contemporary tone to a space. Try not to go too texture crazy. Stick to two or three distinct textures in any single space.

Functional spaces:  Then, there’s the pandemic reality that our homes have become the main settings of our lives: where we work, sleep, and socialize. Every corner, and every object we’re surrounded by, must serve some sort of purpose. Every single piece of furniture has a practical use, every colour tone is from a particular palette and every nook and cranny is carefully thought of. Dual purpose rooms are picking up more trend than ever, kitchen island serves as a meeting table, dressing table could serve the purpose of a working desk, conversion of storerooms into small office spaces, in short, our living spaces continue to double as our work rooms, which is the new normal.
