We hope you are digging these 2015 trends as much as we are! Having the ability to identify key design elements in a trend means you’re one step closer to achieving the look in your own space. This week we are checking out various furniture pieces and how they can help contribute to specific styles. First stop–chairs!
Clean + Uncluttered | I love chairs. Like love them. When searching for seating for your home, keep in mind a chair can be many things–armless, backless, a place to perch or a place to lounge. The pieces below have a variety of functions but speak the same language when it comes to style. They are clean lined, using classic forms and refined elements. Oh, and remember, clean + uncluttered doesn’t have to mean white! I love how this turquoise seat (okay, maybe it’s an ottoman) might add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral palette.
Tailored + Traditional | Traditional upholstered seating doesn’t have to pay homage to your grandma’s floral wingback. Think rich, textured fabrics complemented by special details like nail heads or cording. Avoid chair legs, arms, or fabrics that are too elaborate. Keep the forms simple to achieve a more tailored look.
Modern Farmhouse | This trend is essentially the juxtaposition of two contrasting styles–contemporary and rustic. These chairs are great examples of modern classics that can be combined with a wood breakfast or dining table. Select chairs with a trendy accent color to brighten up your dining room and make it less formal. Trends may come and go, but these classic chairs are all keepers!
Industrial Glam | BHD has been drooling over this trend for awhile now. It may seem risky, but consider subtle ways to execute it in your own home through seating. Mixed metals and dark wood tones are a great start. Look for pieces that have unique frames and shapes. Avoid oversized or bulky chairs. A seat with a feminine form will help pump up your glam factor!
