Having chosen to purchase your ideal home in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford the next thing you need to decide after it has been decorated is how to furnish it. If you have been enjoying living in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford for a while now this time of year is always good for a home refresh. Once the decorating is done buying furniture and furnishings can be fun.
Top designer Marco Ricca says - “When it comes to crafting the perfect home, every design enthusiast knows that furniture can make or break a space.” From blush-coloured upholstery to unique, handmade pieces, what are the top furniture trends to keep on your radar in 2019?
Vivian Johnson says "out with the old, in with the oxidized oak. 2019 will bring more furniture and cabinetry that is a blackened version of our tried and true white oak.” To offset those dark tones "imagine savouring sweet dreams at home nestled beneath sumptuous fabrics. Upholstering your headboard in jewel-toned velvet adds a touch of sophistication in the often subdued sanctuary of any bedroom.” Says interior designer Patrick Ediger.
"The pendulum is swinging from crisp white, softly textural Scandinavian-inspired Hygge back to vivid, high-contrast patterns and big statement mixing of materials and scale. As the volume continues to turn up in the world around us, people will continue to become more daring with their interior choices….." thinks Sya Emiline Munroe.
Nick Glimenakis also believes there will be “A return to handcrafted authenticity, especially when it comes to furniture and decorative arts versus buying mass-produced pieces.” And "Blush is the new neutral. It pairs with greys and naturals for a calming palette. It can be combined with bold colours” says CEO of Interior Define Rob Royer.
Have fun furnishing your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home this Spring 2019.
