Casarredo: The Inside Scoop on 2018’s Hottest Living Room Trends

Choose the latest colours, textures and patterns to transform your interiors. We asked Tracey-Lee, Head of Projects and Designs at renowned furniture brand, Casarredo, to share some of the hottest living room trends of the year! Here’s what she had to say…

Adapted Designs

Deconstructed luxe will be the ubiquitous look of most modern living rooms. 2018 will have continued nods to the industrialism feel of the late 80s.

With this in mind, we suggest adapting these designs into one’s living spaces to use multi-functional furniture that is both practical but crafted to perfection. Incorporating layered coffee tables with ottomans in various shapes and textures, these items can be moved around so change the look of any space.

Colour & Patterns

The big colour trend for 2018 is bright and strong shades. This return of colour in the living room sparks trends from the 70’s and 80’s where strong colours and patterns were seen everywhere.

Colours: Millennial pink is a hot trend right now as seen at Maison et Objet Paris, presented by the worlds most renowned furniture designers. Last year dark green and desaturated shades were the focus, this year it’s more natural and vitaminic/citric hues.

When it comes to patterns… Think tropical and jungle; it’s the gift that keeps on giving. All top design houses are using the likes of Zebra, Lynx and Banana leaf prints!

2018 is the year of leather and velvet. Velvet is billed to be the fabric of choice for statement soft furnishing. As for leather, it’s all about embossing, stitch detail, texture and bold colour.

Instead of rose and yellow gold, more industrial shades of metal are expected to become the prominent choice. From brass to nickel – less high shine materials will add a more organic element to a space. The use of these metals to be used in the detailing from feet, frames and accent jewels.
