Well it’s safe to say 2020 was a crazy year for everyone, and when it comes to the furniture industry it’s been even crazier.
Following lockdown, 2020 saw furniture sales rise by 300%! As a result, lead times were pushed back as far as 6 months.

Now that 2020 is behind us it’s a great opportunity to allow comfort and serenity into our homes.
From rustic, sustainable design to bold statement pieces, here are 5 predictions for 2021:

Our Predictions:

Blue is here to stay! In 2020 we saw navy and cobalt blues a-plenty and we’re not at all disappointed to tell you that these bold shades will be sticking around well into 2021.

Bringing the inside, outside.
This years’ pandemic saw millions of us forced to stay home more than ever before. This new way of lockdown living will see people making the most of their outdoor space in 2021.

Scandinavian influence and minimalistic design.
2021 will be a year of clutter-free spaces, clean modern lines, and tranquility.
This will be introduced through cabinets and built in shelves, multifunctional furniture such as wall mounted fold down desks, and simple line art.

It’s all about texture!
A plush rug under your bare feet or a carved wooden accent piece at your fingertips. From marble beams to wooden wall panels, this year is set to see us experiment with textured walls and we’re excited for it.

Lastly but perhaps the most divided of all…

‘Granny Chic’ aka Grandmillenial style will be huge in 2021.
Quirky. Kitsch. Vintage.

Fabulous floral wallpapers and crazy carpets. Antique furniture and that welcoming scent of your grandmothers home-cooking. It’s back! Whether you go all out and create a timewarp or simply blend timeless treasures with contemporary – Granny Chic is IN.

Some of our wonderful followers may not be aware but one of the services we offer here at Kurlancheek’s is an interior design service.
We’re actually not sales people at all! We’re designers with a passion for what we do and an extensive knowledge of trends, colors, textures and all things interior design!

One of the most important skills you can have as an interior designer is knowing how to tie a space together, and the best way to do this is with color!

Take the gorgeous Caracole dining table below, it truly is a thing of beauty, we can’t dispute that! But with a little magic and a little know-how we were able to totally re-invent it.

Check out the before and after pictures, and then we’ll tell you how we did it!

The How’s and Why’s

Step One:

Assess your surroundings!

Take a look at the area you’re updating and think about what colors you can see. Are your curtains blue? Do you have a bright purple accent chair that you love?

Take note of the colors in the room that you are going to be keeping!

For us, we picked out the pops of teal as we looked around the showroom and decided to bring that to the dining table in order to make the entire store flow.

Step Two:

What Does The Space Need?

Are you replacing the couch? Maybe you just need some new accessories like some throw pillows and a rug?

Decide what you need to bring to the space!

For our dining area we knew we needed to add more chairs. We also brought in a new rug, a painting, and table accessories.

Step Three:

Little by Little!

Start by bringing in one piece at a time.
Whether it be a throw cushion, a painting, a coffee table. Place one item and take several steps back. Once you are happy, move onto the next piece!

Observing the space from further back means you can take in more of the surroundings to see if the new addition flows!

Step Four:

Finishing Touches!

Once you’re happy with the placement of everything, add your finishing touches!
Throw a blanket over the arm of your couch. Hang that mirror. Place a vase of flowers on the console. Light a candle.

All these little details will MAKE the space!

And finally, sit back and enjoy your new room!

The 2020 color chosen by Dulux is Tranquil Dawn. Taking inspiration from the sea and colors of the morning sky, this versatile color promises to change according to the tones it’s used with. A serene green designed to awaken interiors for 2020!

It is the ideal pastel to pair with darker tones such as black and deep blues and will beautifully complement neutral pinks and lilacs, all of which are key colors in next years interior trends.

With that said, neutrals and naturals are still very much in the mix with the shift moving from cool towards warm. Designers are recommending earthy browns and oranges. Earth tones will become the new neutral. Copper, orange, blush and soft yellows will bring an organic, bohemian feel in the upcoming year.

Blue was the “it” color of 2019 and nothing much is going to change about that other than it will move away from pastels and more towards darker blues. Moodier. Less powdery.

With earth tones being the new neutral in 2020, it seems a natural gravitation towards natural materials such as marble, stone, cork, metals, velvets. Multi textural and organic.

A new year brings change and progression into different style trends but gold is right there in 2020 as a welcomed returned classic. Gold takes over stainless, chrome and nickel and will be heavily featured in the modern home. We will see less rustic farmhouse and more luxury and glamour. Sparkling touches, metals, marbles etc.

Another touch on the modern style is geometric designs. From wallpaper to lighting, furniture to accents. The key is clean thin lines and a contemporary feel.

A brand new idea for the new year is the concept of bringing homes and offices together as one. No more separate office away from the family. Multi functional spaces and less seclusion will start to take shape. Incorporating desks and office spaces into living/family rooms.
