Vintage Modern designs come and go, but heirlooms and thrift finds dictate their charm over generations. The burgeoning interest in vintage and reused furniture is a hopeful shift when it comes to many of us wanting to approach life more sustainably. Hence the resurgence of vintage, pre-loved furniture is unsurprising. A new emerging furniture trend is a penchant for exemplary craftsmanship which is driven by a desire for individual expression. While some like coordinated spaces and matching furniture sets, a large population is inching towards mix-and-matched furniture sets featuring unique pieces. Hence, creating an individual design language. Working in unison with other furniture trends such as the use of sustainable materials, 2023 will see many of us carefully considering every piece of furniture in our home, establishing a more collected and individual look. This furniture trend is also being called ’eclecticism and individualism’, a trend where consumers are shifting to a more eclectic collector’s approach to designing their spaces. This will result in not only an elegant blend of the old with the new but a unique union of styles and themes. Rosabagh’s opulent vintage inspired bed will work its charm for a royal look, The Concreate Story’s delicate white carved sofa adds modern touches to an otherwise vintage design. But if you are someone who likes to mix and match to create a unique individual aesthetic, Temple Town’s artistically orchestrated vintage pieces will draw you in. Mid-century modern This one is a dominant aesthetic in today’s world. The mid-century modern design is gaining popularity, as retro-inspired pieces make a serious comeback. Midcentury designs can be best described as simple, functional wooden pieces made from teak featuring curved designs. “The mid-century modern style, popularized during the mid-20th century, still holds sway in contemporary interior design. Characterized by clean lines, organic shapes, and minimalist forms, this style effortlessly blends functionality with elegance. The mid-century modern furniture, such as the iconic Eames chairs or a sleek teak sideboard, can be incorporated into modern spaces, adding a touch of retro chic and enduring appeal,” said Janavi Javeri- Interior Stylist & Founder of Walls and Things. The Concreate Story’s vintage inspired bed is enough to take you back in time. With wood-carved pillars and a curved headrest, the design is functional yet eye-catching. From metalwork, darker woods, jewel tones, stone fixtures, immersive tapestries, ornate detailing, and some serious shadow play, there is variety available in the market. Sustainable Materials The growing focus on conscious living has vastly impacted the décor space as well.An increased emphasis on design products made from wood, wool, stone and ceramics is not merely a revival of one’s interest in craft, rather it also has a mental and emotional impact. Natural materials like wood, and stone add a grounding, natural and human dimension to our environment, helping us feel calmer and happier. Additionally, consumers and designers are also making more mindful choices for their interiors. This includes continued efforts to make environmentally conscious decisions in the home. The importance of sustainability will see many consumers move away from fast furniture and invest in designs that can truly stand the test of time, from the use of wood to furniture crafted from recyclable materials. Orange Tree, a brand known for their focus on sustainability, brings a trendy wooden table with curved edges to the limelight; while Beyond Dreams proves that jute isn’t merely limited to cabinet doors and outdoor furniture. Ellementry’s wooden trolley and cabinet is a prototype when it comes to sustainable furniture. Biophilic Designs In 2023, nature-inspired spaces are here to stay. Homeowners are looking to create a sense of escapism through landscape-inspired forms in woven textiles and art. Also known as biophilic designs. As we continue to see the positive effects of being closer to nature, the biophilic design trend helps us bring some of the natural world into the comfort of our homes. This is synonymous with the use of natural materials such as bamboo, cork, sisal, wood cane, and wicker, which will be used in furniture design a lot more.
