Back in October, our team went to High Point Market — the industry’s annual home furnishings show — to see what our vendors had in store for 2019. Overall, we noticed the trends pointing towards clean, simple lines, a neutral palette, and texture.
A neutral palette offers a foundation for pops of color, like Pantone’s Living Coral, and texture. We’re seeing warmer tones of taupe and beige replacing the cooler grays that have been so popular for years.
Wallpaper and coordinating fabrics are back! Geometrics, florals, grasscloth, and faux wood are trending in both paper and vinyl. We’re also seeing large florals in fabrics and wallpapers. Either printed or embroidered, they add dimension and texture to draperies, valances, bedding and pillows.
We’re seeing sheer fabrics — but not your Grandma’s sheers! New weaves and embroidered patterns update this versatile fabric that works great for roman shades and panels. Sheers can complete a room, frame the view, provide some privacy, and control the light.
Natural textures add warmth to every room. For example, Hunter Douglas Woven Wood Shades offer texture and privacy, while natural fiber rugs ground a room. Grasscloth and faux wood wallpapers add subtle texture without committing to a pattern you may tire of.
In upholstered goods, performance fabrics are in high demand for their suitability to busy households. Crypton, solution-died acrylics, and olefin are simple to clean, have a soft hand, and come in a variety of patterns and colors. So, if you’ve been holding back from buying that white sofa for fear of spots and stains, you can put your fears to rest with today’s fabrics.
