Leading furniture trends in 2021

November 18, 2021

Another year is coming to an end and we are excited to be recapping some of the leading furniture trends from 2021.

2021 was a year where we spent a lot of time at home and people really embraced stunning but practical furniture trends. We saw people invest in a lot of couches worth cozying up on with a book, soft beds with luxurious textiles, flexible work and home office spaces, and dining tables that can serve all of your loved ones. We also saw a lot of rich colour tones and textiles with unique textures. It may have been a long year, but we embraced it by making our homes as comfortable, liveable, workable, and beautiful as possible.

Occasional chairs with character

Occasional chairs really made their mark this year. From velvet to leather, we saw all kinds of designs with unique occasional chairs. Some of our favourites were the chairs that pack an extra punch, the ones that act almost as an artistic statement piece just as much as lounge pieces. A few of the favourites that we had on our floor that fit this mould were:

  1. The Hilbert occasional chair- A classic style arms chair with a modern flair, this sturdy but stunning chair makes any room look sophisticated and feel welcoming.
  2. The Mandel occasional chair - This trendy piece has an eye-catching wood body complemented by its leather cushioning. If you could design a chair to define 2021- this would be it.
  3. The Moline occasional chair- Don’t compromise on comfort! The Moline’s comfort upholstery and masculine design make it appealing for a plethora of living spaces.

Natural wood dining tables

Wood dining tables have made a huge comeback over the past few years and we are 100% here for it. With natural woods like acacia, birch, and ash being incredibly popular due to their durability, long-term sustainability, and beauty, we hope this trend sticks around for a little bit longer.

We stock a huge variety of wood dining tables with a variety of unique designs, sizes, and purposes. Here are a few of our favourites from 2021:

  1. Zen Live Edge Dining Table - If you like live-edge tables then this one's for you. The solid acacia wood table and black metal trestle legs are the perfect balance of modern and timeless. Another plus: this table is totally eco and user-friendly!
  2. West Extension Dining Table - If you need a table that can serve a larger party, then this may be the choice for you! This dining table can comfortably seat your family or extend out to accommodate guests. The acacia wood is a stunning tone and will bring a rich depth to your dining space.
  3. Zoom Extendable Dining Table - The square cut of classic birch or ash wood dining table is absolutely perfect for a modern home. With customizable wood table options and metal leg options, you will find the perfect colour combo to complement your home design.
