As we wrote in our first trend report of the year, sober, beige colours with wood like oak and walnut are still on top. The wood shades are darkening ever so slightly for autumn, and we're seeing some murkier colours being added on.
Teddy, chenille, and sheepskin go swell with soft-shaped furniture. The &Tradition classic Little Petra has got a new friend, Wulff, and New Works' sofa series is a bullseye for this autumn's trends.
There are 4 other clear trends this autumn; let's run through them below.
An ode to the natural in the form of colour scales and materials. Country cottages, perhaps newly become permanent homes, now have more say in home décor. We are seeing TV celebs and influencers opt out of the urban rat race and move away from big cities one by one. A flexible life where we are allowed to work from wherever. Where modernising the furnishings won't work, but rather they must be refined and complimented with fitting interior details.
Roll up your sleeves, we're going to create a home office that lasts, ergonomically and aesthetically. This past year home offices have bloomed everywhere, and we are seeing more and more new design products to match. We gathered our favourites here.
Around the corner looms a new world, full of joy and hope. Design bursting with playfulness and cheery colour schemes. Purple, yellow, and neon shades, like a fresh breeze, are mixing with the autumn dark. Games of forms where up can be down and down up. Dare to stick out and be brave with your interior details.
More and more companies have taken climate impact as one of their core values and strive consciously to raise their standards and work harder for a more sustainable future. This also raises awareness among customers, who now demand transparency from suppliers. In autumn 2021, "locally produced", "climate compensated", and "long-term" are the slogans of most home décor companies.
