The trend towards colour palettes and decor options in the past few years has been about focusing on our future, relaxing, ideation, and disconnecting. Last year’s Pantone Colour of the Year was Ultra Violet – a deep shade of purple and blue hues to promote originality, futurism, and visionary thinking.
Similar to this, modern furniture styles have been trending towards the natural, the simple, and the bold. Complicated designs and furniture are no longer sought after; minimalism is almost everyone’s choice.
With 2018 coming to a close soon, here at sohoConcept we’re looking forward to 2019 to determine some of the furniture trends and colours being predicted to be stylish in the new year.
Popular Colours for 2019
The predicted popular colours for 2019 revolve around deep hues, sophistication, class, and elegance. Deep tones evoke feelings of refinement, worldliness, and richness.
The Dulux Paint 2019 colour of the year is Night Watch – a deep, beautiful green from nature while still evoking urban sophistication. They are pairing this colour with a bold palette of deep blues, rich wine shades, neutral greys and nudes, and some amazing burnt orange colours (like their Lucky Penny). Their palettes are a balanced mix of neutral, light shades with deep colourful hues. https://www.dulux.ca/diy/colour/2019-dulux-trends
Behr’s colour of the year for 2019 is Blueprint, a simple, honest, flexible colour that evokes flexibility, imagination, and transformation. The name itself brings up these feelings of starting to build something from scratch! Their colour palettes are similar to those of Dulux’s balanced neutrals, but also a variety of pastels mixed with deep green and blue hues. https://www.behr.com/consumer_ca/inspiration/2019-color-trends/
Pantone, of course, has not yet released their colour of the year for 2019. Their 2019 Colour Palettes are so far filled with deep greens and bright oranges, with neutrals in beige, grey, and deep blue for balance. Their colour palette in 2019 is fuelled by rich food and cravings, like pepper, turmeric, and toffee. We are excited to see what they choose as their 2019 colour of the year in this delicious theme! https://www.pantone.com/color-intelligence/fashion-color-trend-report/fashion-color-trend-report-london-spring-summer-2019
Predicted Decor and Modern Furniture Trends
Modern furniture using these deep, rich shades and colours will be key in the 2019 modern furniture trends. Deep colours on the walls with neutral furniture will likely be a prominent trend, making solid colour the focus of the room. On the other hand, we may see a lot of neutral paints with bright accent walls and bright furniture to complement them.
Muted pastels will also likely be a huge modern furniture and decor trend in the upcoming year. Chalky tones will have a place in almost any colour palette and are perfect for a minimalist design, which is always in style recently!
Metallic tones will also likely be huge in 2019, whether for decor or furniture bases. Chrome will be a bold finish contrasting the deep colours and will complement the pastel and neutral shades well. In spaces using deep greens, however, wood furniture may be the material of choice!
