THE CENTREPIECE BETWEEN ART & FUNCTION

Canadian artist Matthew Young creates custom pieces featured in galleries with tables that elevate any conversation.

Trend Showcase: Texture Injects Interest Into Furniture And Decor This Year

Here’s what we found at the Furniture Show.

This year’s Trend Showcase at the Canadian Furniture Show, May 25th to 27th, 2018 boasted a multitude of trends that we will see sweeping the retail industry in 2018 and beyond.

The industry is making a serious shift back to simplicity and organic design, and that was evident in many of the pieces on display this past weekend. Smooth curves and rounded edges are prominent in furniture and decor, giving sofas, tables, chairs, and consoles a relaxed element; we’ve said goodbye to harsh modern angles and are welcoming an influx of softer pieces. Scandinavian design continues to be hot in 2018, as well as bold influences from the 70s.

The mixture of blonde wood with stylish and functional furniture will make a striking feature in the homes of many this year. Pops of black and white, and mixed metals finishes are also on the rise; we saw eye catching accessories, and decor pieces such as toss cushions and light fixtures created dramatic looks on the show floor.

A common theme amongst all of these incoming design trends is that of texture; whether it’s a plush velvet, a lovely wood grain, or a rough and industrial concrete finish, visual and tactile texture is injecting interest into furniture and decor this year. Lastly, technology continues to play a large part in trend-setting design.

Automation and ease of use is driving the furniture industry toward pieces that are not only on trend but are functional for the user. Whether you’re renovating your home or just looking for a fresh spring update, this year’s Trend Showcase was the perfect queue for what’s to come for retail in 2018 and 2019.
