Furniture and Furnishings Trends for 2020 in East Finchley, London

Furniture and Furnishings Trends for 2020 in East Finchley, London

We all want a home to be proud of. For some that means something flashy, for others it’s something comfortable and homely, and for some it has to be new and trendy. When we did a little research into what might be on trend for furniture and furnishings in 2020, I’m happy to report that we were able to find a little of something to satisfy all of those desires.

So, if you’re looking to uplift your tired home’s image, to add new life into your interior design or you just need an excuse to keep up with the Joneses, here are four tips to consider when planning what goes in your spaces.


  1. It’s all about the curves

Uniform and square edged has been on trend for so many years… it’s time for a change. When it comes to your fundamental furniture pieces – sofas, chairs, beds – curves are in. Whether you go for something art deco or contemporary, you can’t go wrong with clean rounded edges and sweeping lines. If you want your home to stand out, to wow your friends, or simply to reflect your inner curve (yes, I really did just say that!), then choose something that makes a statement.


  1. Subtle stripes

Stripes have traditionally been represented through colour. However, in 2020 the humble stripe has been reimagined to be represented through textures. Different depths or types of material, or subtle tonal changes, to form a striped pattern which can take furniture or furnishings to an entirely new level. It’s about elegance and elevation this year.


  1. Rug art

We tend to live fairly ‘minimalistic design’ lives these days, often choosing blank off-white walls, single colour carpets and furnishing. But when you’ve finished setting up your home and you look at your work, do you think to yourself that maybe you’ve been a little too safe? The result could be a bland space to live in. A rug that blazes with colour could be the simple, cost-effective way to liven it up. Make sure that the dominant colouring matches the tones of your room, then get artistic with your choice. A rug, the right rug, can add personality and pizzazz to almost any room.


  1. Warm and cosy

A simple way to modernise your living room look is with your sofa coverings. Layer soft, sumptuous cushions and furry throws on your furniture so you really relax when you sink into your seat at the end of the day. Colour schemes for your sofa coverings in 2020 have to be muted natural pigments of cool blues and teals, warm browns and oranges and washed greens, all light enough so that – no matter how many colours you have together – they all work together.


If you’ve been inspired to do something to raise your pride levels in your own home then it might be time for a spruce up, an interior facelift, a revamp or a refurbishment.
