Bespoke Furniture Trends 2018
It’s hard to think about those cold months drawing in, but what better way to embrace them than with a fresh new home-look you can’t wait to get back to! Here’s our top 3 bespoke furniture trends on their way for autumn.
Grey and white may still be the colours of choice but now we are seeing splashes of colour in both walls and furniture to off-set the neutral surrounding pigments. Take a look at a beautiful living room we completed recently which shows off how striking this mixed colour effect can be. If you’re struggling to decide on your unique colour, why not try the Pantone Colour of The Year: 18-3838 Ultra Violet, ‘a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level’.
There was a time when dark wood meant an uncomfortable throwback to 1960s aesthetics, but thankfully not anymore! More and more people are opting for dark reclaimed wood to make their home truly unique. Teaming dark surfaces and cupboards with splashes of mint green or even yellow can completely modernise any room. You could also add metallic handles and feet for that extra modern look. If you need a bit of bespoke furniture inspiration take a look at this amazing kitchen made completely with Iroko wood from the west coast of Africa, beautiful!
Whilst perhaps not strictly a design style, being ethical and a friend to the environment is always on trend! We are seeing a big rise in the request for bespoke furniture created with reclaimed wood, particularly in living rooms and bedrooms that are filled with conscientious purchases. With reclaimed wood, not only is it more environmentally friendly, the grain is also denser which makes it sturdier than new wood. If you are wanting to compliment your reclaimed wood product with a greener home take a look at www.ethicalsuperstore.com which is filled with eco-friendly products to enhance your home.
