Modern Sofa Trends in 2024: A Sneak Peak Into What the Experts Say

October 30, 2023

For many years, the rectangular sofas in hues of grey and neutral colours reigned supreme in the modern sofa world. However, the rectangular sofa look has undergone a shift towards graceful curves, unconventional shapes, and an air of comfort rather than a strictly tailored look. Let’s dive into modern sofa trends that are poised to make a statement in 2024.

1. Curved Sofas For the Retro Feel

One of this year's prevailing trends, likely to gain even more traction, is the shift from sharp angles to natural, flowing shapes. In 2024, this trend is reflected in the abundance of rounded sofa models: crescents, retro-inspired shells and fully rounded "islands". The curved sofa, brought to design prominence in 1950 with furniture designer Vladamir Kagan’s biomorphic Serpentine sofa, has increased in popularity because of its graceful contours, inviting feel, and unmistakable mid-century charm.

The popularity of curved lines is influenced by several factors: a resurgence of retro styles, particularly from the 60s and 70s, a desire to connect with nature, and the recognition of interior design as an antidote to stress, providing a sense of comfort and security.

2.Tailored to You: Modular Sofas

While modular sofas are nothing new, they continue to be preferred by homeowners and designers alike. Modular sofas provide many important benefits:

  • Variability - You can choose the shape, size, and functionality according to your wishes and the layout of the room. This makes the whole design more ergonomic and individual.
  • Multifunctionality - In addition to the seats themselves, you can add a bed, cabinets and shelves, storage space, tables, even mini-racks to the modular system.
  • Appearance -The modern design of sofas in 2024 is relevant in any style, fitting into contemporary, loft, and even eclecticism, where, for example, minimalist furniture is combined with classic decor.

3. A 90’s Inspo: Corner Sofas

Corner furniture is often associated with typical nineties interiors, where all items were placed around the perimeter of the room. But today, manufacturers offer modern models that look relevant and at the same time help to effectively use all available space.

Here’s how to use L-shaped modern sofas in 2024:

  • Beat the corner of an elongated room, completely occupying it with a soft group. (Visually shorten an elongated room by filling the space with a corner sectional)
  • Use it as a zoning tool – for example, put it not against the wall, as is usually done, but place it in the center of the kitchen-living room, visually highlighting the recreation area.
  • Organize a real lounge area in a small apartment by adding a couple of ottomans grouped with the coffee table to the sofa for additional flexible seating.

4. Natural Colours Prevail

The fashion for a natural aesthetic has not gone away and is unlikely to pass in the coming years. The most popular warm colors are beige, taupe, cream & brown and all their variations, from shortbread to milk chocolate. In the cooler spectrum, it is primarily gray with its variety of tones : light and dark, delicate and bold.

If you want to add colour to your modern sofa, brighter textiles do an excellent job with this task. Or you can choose upholstery in any natural shade of green, blue or red – but it should be a little toned down, not flashy if your goal is to create a natural-looking space. For example, rather than strong scarlet red or bold royal blue you would look towards an inviting warm ochre or a soft dusty blue.

5. Velvety Smooth

Last but certainly not least, a modern sofa trend in furniture and decor is the embrace of sumptuous velvet, encompassing models, armchairs, ottomans, and an array of plush pillows. Contemporary iterations of velvet and velour distinguish themselves through their exceptional performance attributes. These fabrics boast remarkable wear resistance and durability, ensuring longevity and endurance in everyday use.

What sets these modern velvet and velour apart is their practicality. Thanks to a range of advanced treatments, they possess the ability to repel water, resist dirt, and repulse dust. This means that not only do these fabrics exude a lavish aesthetic, but they also prove to be highly functional, catering to both the senses of opulence and practicality.
