The latest upholstery trends.

                                 Last week, Zen Carpet Cleaning provided you with a list of the latest rug and carpet trends. However, we know that your upholstery is just as important. A chair or a couch is not only essential to most rooms in the house, they’re also a reflection of a home’s character and overall ambiance.

Interior decorating can be hard. Making final decisions about how you want your home decorated is not an easy task, especially if you don’t have a good sense of which colours and designs compliment one another.

At Zen Carpet Cleaning, we understand your struggle. However, we also know how rewarding it is to fall in love with a room you’ve decorated. Interior decorating allows you to showcase your personality and uniqueness through every decision– that’s what makes it so great!

For these reasons, Zen Carpet Cleaning has assembled a list of the latest upholstery trends. 

 

Nature inspiration

Where better place to draw inspiration from than our own backyards? Upholstery styles and designs have become a reflection of the natural world. For example, you can find lots of chairs, couches, and throw pillows that have leaf and fern-like patterns.

The latest colour trends are also in tune with nature. Tones such as dark blues, mossy greens, and sunny yellows will make your room look earthy and refined. Try matching these tones with more neutral colours. For instance, a grey rug would look great with a moss green chair.

 

Vintage

Secondhand may have sounded like a faux pas a couple years ago, but it has now become a huge trend for interior decorating. When you shop vintage, you’re more easily able to find unique pieces you know your friends and family have never seen. Plus, shopping secondhand means that you’ll be able to find stunning pieces at a lower cost.

Also, velvet has become a popular upholstery trend. Since velvet furniture was such a big rend in the past, it’s not that hard to find them in secondhand stores.

However, sometimes shopping vintage can be difficult. Sometimes we find a design we like, but the fabric covering the chair itself looks worn out, or simply doesn’t compliment your home. Luckily, websites like Pintrest and Youtube have encouraged the growth of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) culture. Learn to cover up patterns or designs you don’t like, by simply searching for reupholstery methods online. Because you’re saving money, you can afford to spend a bit on materials to customize your couch or chair.

 

Chinoiserie

Asian patterned fabric is so in. In particular, Chinese styles and Persian styles have gained popularity. These may be harder to find at a lower price, but their bold designs will make any room stand out.

The importance of a frame

For the frame of your couch or chair, shiny metals are making a comeback. We suggest a copper or bronze.

If the sound of a metal frame doesn’t excite you, try looking for couches or chairs the employ a mid-century style. This design is super trendy, and very versatile.

Keep an eye peeled, Zen Carpet Cleaning predicts that styles that were popular in 50s and 60s, like the mid-century style, will continue regaining popularity.
