1. Geometric Patterns

When opting for geometric patterns in furniture, it is important to stick to a category of shapes. Too many geometric shapes and designs do not blend in well and it looks more abstract than a combination. However, to showcase variety, you can opt for dual geometric patterns.
For instance, square floorboards, rectangular windows and teapots blend in perfectly. In addition, you can add geometric lines in the form of wall arts. The Walnut Studio also possesses a collection of hexagonal furnishing elements such as coffee tables and stools for seating.

2021 has seen more people opting for vintage furniture to adorn their interiors. These designs have a touch of history to it and establish a sense of belonging in the respective spaces. Typical vintage style interiors include the use of refurbished teak wood, floral upholstery, brass fittings etc.
Furniture in such interiors seems very natural with their scrapes and cracks to give it an organic look. Other elements such as antique wall-clocks, large-sized wooden dining tables, old-fashioned chandeliers and flower pots blend in very well in vintage interiors. These materials give a finishing touch to add that bit of elegance and style to the spaces.
3. Round Furniture:

While geometric furniture is in demand this year, round furniture – an off-shoot style, has also seen a surge in customers’ preference ranks. Since most of us have been restricted to our homes due to the pandemic, we commute indoors very often. Here, one of the biggest advantages of round furniture is that there are no sharp edges that could possibly hurt someone.
Moreover, the circular shape is believed to make a good impression on people’s minds. Round center tables, coffee tables, seating arrangements, flower vases harmonize well in any interior decors. Bidding farewell to the traditional rectangular furniture, this style comes with its own advantages and no wonder why it has been one of the most trending styles in the industry.
4. Sustainable Furniture (Earthy Material):

There is a high demand for natural materials as designers can achieve interesting and sophisticated combinations from different textures. Our perceptions also have been influenced after the pandemic like one about nature and how we must start preserving it before it's too late.
Sustainable and eco-friendly designs are in trend and biodegradable materials like wood, hemp, cane and natural fibers help in reducing the carbon footprint. Cultural art that can be locally sourced like tribal art is affordable and passes on a totally enticing vibe.
5. Work From Home Stations

Consumers have been focusing on a work-life balance amid COVID-19 and have been reorienting the way of living at home. Another factor that motivates us is physical discomfort and related health issues to find suitable home-office furniture. Study tables and ergonomic office chairs are popular in the working class.
Moreover, people are focusing on the functionality of a furniture than its form. Multipurpose and lightweight items which are easily movable like kitchen breakfast counters which can be used as a work desk are in demand.
6. Color Therapy:

People have turned to home décor as a medium to boost their mental health. Various trends like adding a little pop of color in an otherwise dull lockdown routine has been of significant help. It helps in adding a playful element and gives the interior an artistic touch. A burnt orange lamp against a muted palette gives a vibrant aura and brightens the ambience.

The pandemic has helped people find a new attachment with the plants and helped in reconnecting with gardening. This has led to plant lovers looking for innovative ways to add more members to their plant family.
Planters help in the very cause of accommodating many plants and can be placed outdoors. Sleek and modern planters are being preferred due to ease of movement to change as per décor requirement. Whereas, some opt for a more rustic and antique look. It gives a pleasing aesthetic and adds an element of ethnicity in the plant corner.
