Color and upholstery trends for this year are an acknowledgement of the universal need for revelry and relaxation. At this time, when everyone wants to be cocooned in warmth and safety, plush fabrics that offer comfort and coziness are popular, velvet being the hot favourite.

Colors & Hues

It’s now time to bid adieu to the most loved color of 2018, that ruled both our walls and wardrobes; millennial pink. After being a dominant part of our homes last year, neutrals such as beige and grey are making way for brighter and bolder hues like coral, watermelon red, violet, navy and emerald green. 

Think moody interiors with upholstery in jewel tones and dark wood furniture. Lighter wood finishes are being replaced with darker, richer stains that beautifully complement the sought-after, rich and earthy colours of the season terracotta, sienna, tan, ochre and rust.

If bright shades intimidate you, use them sparingly as accents, by adding pillows, cushions and decorative objects in bold colours. Furniture with accents in gold is also trending this year and adds a touch of easy sophisticated glamour. Metallic accents have been around for a long time but gold is big this season.

Trending Shapes: Comfy & Cozy

Low & puffy furniture shapes, couches and chairs upholstered in texture-rich suede, leather or velvet with soft, curved lines are being preferred. The partners at Kernig Krafts, a furniture design studio based in Jodhpur, offer some useful interior decoration advice- furbishing a café/restaurant with plump sofas and ottomans is an easy way to make the space look welcoming and luxurious and is going to be a huge trend in 2019.

Spotlight: Handcrafted & Custom made

There is also a shift towards customisation and buying handcrafted furniture. The idea of being involved in the furniture making process is exciting. People want to know the story behind the pieces in their cafe or living room. Right from the design, wood to the upholstery fabric, everything can be chosen. This is one trend that is going to be huge this year.
