Blum South Africa: The Latest In Furniture Design Trends

The design world is filled with changing trends and new ideas. When it comes to the furniture industry, there are a few trends that tick all the right boxes. From dark surfaces to metallics and even minimalism… the team from Blum South Africa helps us explore the latest trends we have to have!

Blum has a range of hinges available in onyx black to blend discreetly with dark materials

Dark materials

Dark materials are increasingly determining the outward appearance of furniture. Blum takes this trend inside the furniture as well, with dark fittings. Entire living areas with a harmonious colour concept can be created, from floors and walls to ceiling.

The BLUM range for AVENTOS lift systems includes dark cover caps in dark grey. There is an extensive product line of CLIP top BLUMOTION hinges in onyx black, suitable for doors. TANDEMBOX in Orion Grey and LEGRABOX pull-outs in Orion Grey or Terra Black bring a dark elegance to the base cabinet.

With Blum’s motion technologies you can achieve simple beauty with handle-less cabinetry.


Clear, straight lines, simple design basics and large surfaces are an important design trend. Handle-less fronts supported with SERVO-DRIVE, TIP-ON BLUMOTION and TIP-ON motion technologies ensure a minimalist furniture design. The EXPANDO T fixing system from BLUM therefore allows thin fronts made from exceptional materials to be used.

Blum provides matching dark fittings and cover caps for lift systems, doors and pull-outs. For example, new dark grey cover caps for AVENTOS lift systems.

Individuality – memorable furniture

It is very on-trend to use furniture to express your own style. Design is no longer just on the surface; it has therefore also moved inside the furniture, here with the LEGRABOX free.

LEGRABOX free enables unique furniture design to express your style. You can create your own individual drawer side elements using various materials eg. wood and glass.


Elegant accents can be set with metallic elements such as Blum hinges in onyx black. LEGRABOX drawer sides in stainless steel, with an anti-fingerprint finish, will therefore add a metallic finish to the inside of cabinetry.

Furthermore, surfaces with a metallic look create special effects, such as LEGRABOX in stainless steel (below).

Blum South Africa has four showrooms nationwide in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth.
