Every year sees new trends in Interior Design – new colours, new shapes. Space is redefined and accessories reflect the current directions on what is trending now in Interior Design. To assist you in your deliberations here is a recent article from Houzz titled Home Design Trends That Will Shape 2022. We have selected the most relevant items pertaining to living rooms.
Major renovations steal a lot of home design attention. But updates to furniture and decor are booming. In 2021, searches on Houzz for home accents increased 2,417% compared with the prior year, while searches for decorative accents rose 799%. For accent pillows, searches skyrocketed 5,050%.
Velvet is one of those materials that cycles through periods of popular and really popular. Right now we seem to be in an era of the latter. And why not? It’s soft, has texture, and who doesn’t like rubbing a hand back and forth on a velvet surface to create patterns?
On Houzz, searches for velvet accent chairs were up 1,161% in 2021 compared with the previous year. Velvet sofas were up 121%.
Furniture with rounded contours showed up everywhere at the 2021 High Point Market, signaling a curvy trend for sofas, sectionals and chairs that will keep rolling in 2022.
A swivel chair gives users the option to shift position toward or away from elements in a room. A pair of swivel chairs can face the interior conversation area or rotate around to views of the sunny outdoors. Houzz searches for swivel chairs were up 1,922% in 2021 compared with 2020.
Neutral Sofas in Performance Fabric
There was a time when few homeowners took the gamble on having a white or other light neutral-colored sofa in a living room. The inevitable spills and stains were too much of a deal-breaker.
But with innovations in stain-resistant fabric, that’s no longer the case. Durable, easy-to-clean fabrics from companies like Warwick, Sunbrella, Crypton and Perennials mean homeowners can now more confidently embrace light upholstered furniture.
At Sulfaro each item of furniture is individually crafted in our modern studios and workshop, (located directly behind Sulfaro’s showrooms). Our gifted team of Artisans and Tradespeople create each piece – from framing through to finished upholstery – to the exacting standards set by our Master Craftsman, Santo Sulfaro. Furniture making is generational tradition with Sulfaro, utilising methodologies handed down from ‘Father to Son’. For Santo and his team the process is hands on utilising classic European furniture making techniques.
In crafting furniture onsite Sulfaro offer you, the customer, the opportunity of hand selecting the fabrics, the colours, the patterns and the materials of your choice. Our Design Team will guide you through the selection process on fabrics, leathers and accessories to suit your taste and requirements. The Design team have gathered a massive collection of fine fabrics and leathers for your selection from Australia’s and the world’s leading fabric houses and fine leather suppliers. Choose the accessories you desire – buttoning, piping, fringing, skirting, cushioning and timber finishes. Be certain of your absolute comfort – select the cushioning and lumbar support you require.
Start by determining the sofa, armchairs or occasional chairs you desire from our extensive Collection. Call us on 03 9872 4608 and arrange a meeting with our Design Team, led by Amelia Sulfaro, our Retail Manager, at a time convenient to you (Sulfaro is open 7 days per week, see details below).
