Upholstery trends are like fashion. You finally decide on a trend to suit you and suddenly it’s not ‘fashionable’ anymore. 2017 has seen some interesting trends filtering through and we think some may be here for a while. Here’s some of our favourites:

Stripes

Stripes are a classic favourite, constantly seen on the catwalk, it’s now firmly placing itself in our homes. Available in all colours and sizes, stripes are a versatile yet subtle way of introducing patterns into a room.

Bauhaus Prints

If you’re feeling a little more daring, the geometric Bauhaus-inspired prints are a great way to make a statement in your home. Blocky and bold, it’s a modern way to add interest to a block-coloured room.

Hot Pink and Sunshine Yellow

With everything that’s going on in the world, sometimes a bit of hot pink or sunshine yellow is needed to brighten our moods. It might not be for everyone, but introducing small touches such as coloured cushions or a statement chair makes it an accessible trend for all. Pair bright pink with a sultry grey, or sunshine yellow with a subtle cream for that sophisticated look.
