The Summer 2019 edition of Las Vegas Market ushered in fresh ideas and familiar favorites across all home furnishings categories. Here are some of our post-market favorites:
Florals, namely large and mid-size varieties, have been blooming for several seasons in home furnishings. The trend plays out in wall decor, especially wallpaper; home textiles; and area rugs. New examples are rooted in traditional design, yet freshened up with modern treatments — this winning combination of old and new appeals to Gen Z and Millennial shoppers, and city dwellers and suburbanites alike.
Mid-Century Modern furnishings continue their reign in the marketplace: low-profile upholstery silhouettes; walnut veneers; angled, tapered legs … these are familiar design attributes that characterize the look. But this season, rattan, a material tapped decades ago by Mid-Century legends such as Marcel Breuer and Pierre Jeanneret, leads as home furnishings brands dig deeper into the Mid-Century Modern design archives.
Industrial, vintage furniture captures the imagination of urbanites, often because it complements the exteriors and interiors of the lofts they call home. Latest examples present a step-up story that features polished metal finishes rather than rough-hewn wood. Gold varieties are the front runner, especially when paired with caramel-colored leather.
End tables, nesting tables, drinks tables … they may be the smallest furnishings in a room, but their versatility throughout the home is unmatched. In the bedroom, they are nightstands; in the family room, convenient charging stations; and given Millennials tendency to entertain at home — preferring a Netflix binge-watch party with close friends, rather than a noisy nightclub — lightweight, go-anywhere varieties are party hosting essentials.
Velvets are nearing peak on the home furnishings trend curve; meanwhile, menswear-inspired fabrics are poised to capture market share. These suiting-inspired fabrics are fitting for the Fall/Winter 2020 season, with herringbone-inspired designs taking the lead. Colors run the neutrals spectrum, with both cool and warm grays showing strong staying power.
