Luxebook Jan-Feb 2024

The mid-century modern craze, once the darling of interior enthusiasts, is now a nostalgic nod in the rearview mirror, making room for a fusion of styles that defy categorization. Think boho-chic meets industrial luxe, with a sprinkle of retro-futurism – a delightful concoction that encapsulates the essence of the contemporary. Picture this: a time-travelling sofa that effortlessly transitions from mid-century chic to futuristic minimalism with just a touch; a coffee table that doubles as a holographic gaming console, bringing virtual adventures into your living room; and chairs that seem to defy gravity, suspended in a delicate dance between art and functionality. Welcome to the whimsical trends of furniture in 2024, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, and the avant-garde takes centre stage. But wait, there’s more! Sustainability is key As we dive deeper into the narrative of evolving furniture trends, it’s impossible to ignore the impact of sustainability. In 2024, the eco-conscious wave will be sweeping through the design world, giving rise to a new era of responsibly crafted, eco-friendly furniture. Adding weight to this statement, Shivani and Siddhant Anand- cofounders of Bay Window share, “Indian furniture is increasingly veering towards incorporating renewable resources, recycled materials, and eco-conscious manufacturing processes as there’s a lot more focus on sustainability. With urban spaces becoming smaller, there’s a rising demand for functional furniture that is adaptable and multifunctional.” They further added that furniture designs incorporating versatility in function, storage efficiency, and space-saving features may gain popularity. The upcoming trends in Indian furniture design are anticipated to accentuate the fusion of traditional and modern aesthetics in 2024, creating distinctive and eclectic pieces through a harmonious blend of contemporary and traditional elements. Vintage charm In 2024, one can expect to be teleported to the vintage world as the aesthetics are all set for a comeback. Speaking of the same, Sachin Gupta and Neha Gupta, Founder and Interior Designers of Beyond Designs share, “A yearning for classic and vintage styles continues to be there and is ready to evolve through more contemporary interpretations.
