5 Design Trends That Will Dominate in 2018Wednesday 7 February 2018
5 Design Trends That Will Dominate in 2018 – For the year 2018, the Interior Design Industry has established five outstanding design trends that will dominate this year’s décor. Join CovetED and let’s explore what are this 5 Trends.
Terracotta – The first Design Trend we have to explore is Terracotta. We’re not talking about the famous and iconic Terracotta Armies, although if you have the chance, you should buy an authentic Terracotta Soldier for your house because it’s an amazing work of ancient art! The Terracotta we are talking about is the colour Terracotta! Many designers believe that Terracotta and Ultra Violet will be the colours of 2018 and many manufacturers are already presenting products that highlight the terracotta colour!
Maximalism – The reign of Minimalism will be threatened in 2018. Even though Minimalism has been dominating the Design Trends in recent years, namely within the Nordic Design, Maximalism is rapidly gaining some ground! The new trend among popular interior designers is to bet on Maximalism pieces, like big rugs or powerful tables and consoles. The idea behind this resurgence of Maximalism is to give back some areas of the house, like dining or living rooms, a new sense of power.
Renewable Materials – The Interior Design Industry, like all the major industries in the world, is starting to understand the importance of Eco-Friendly products! For that reason, Eco-Friendly Furniture is one of the most important Design Trends of 2018! That’s right, furniture made entirely from sophisticated recycled materials like recycled plastics, cans, smartphone screens, pineapple leaves and corn husks are going to dominate the Design Trends in 2018, But we will continue to see this Trend in the years ahead because Eco-Friendly Furniture is here to stay!
Monochrome – It may seem a contradictory statement to bet on Monochrome when Maximalism is also a 2018 Trend, but the truth is that, like we said earlier, Minimalism has still a strong presence within the Interior Design Trends. In a Minimalistic Perspective, Monochrome is going to be a strong bet for 2018, with a clear bet in monotone furniture and textiles in various shades of white and beige, and materials such as bleached maple and Carrara marble.
Comfort – It’s not a major trend, but it’s an important one. Comfort is important and it’s what Clients more often ask Interior Designers to include in their projects! In 2018, Comfort will headline the Design Trends, because Comfort and Style can go hand to hand. In Private and Hospitality projects, Confort is always a priority and that’s why is so important within the Design Industry!
This article only focuses on 5 of the most important Design Trends of 2018. There are many more, but this 5 will dominate the Interior Design Industry in 2018!
