We see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ve been indoors for over a year, secluded, spending more time with our pets than other humans. Time to reintroduce ourselves back into society with home upgrades that will help us shed our pandemic personas, our covid cocoons. Today we’re taking a look at interior decorating trends for 2021 that will revamp your space and usher in a new era, one in which we are stronger, wiser, and more aware of the cleanliness of every surface. Let’s get to it!
Mixed materials. The combination of the natural and man-made! Industrial Modern is making a prominent comeback this year! The wonderful thing about Industrial Modern is that it elegantly combines vintage elements with the sleekness of contemporary design. Rich tones and bold metallic components make Industrial Modern furniture great accent pieces within a multitude of design motifs. Perfectly blending past and present design elements, Industrial Modern pieces have a natural Transitional-ism to them which makes them great for traditional, contemporary, and everything-in-between homes.
The Nottingham Collection is a perfect example of the Industrial Modern trend. Featuring sturdy, iron bases and live-edge, solid acacia wood, the Nottingham Collection embraces the natural and the industrial.
The Bruges Collection is another fantastic example of Industrial Modern design. Crafted in solid acacia and iron, the Bruges Platform bed exudes sophistication with its sleek, clean lines and U-shaped iron legs. Warm tones and cool, metallic components make the Bruges a wonderfully balanced collection for the contemporary home.
Finally, if you’re looking to introduce more decorative industrial modern pieces, the Paxton Collection includes Occasional Tables, Bookshelves, and Utility carts to really spruce up your space without needing to toss all your existing furniture out the window. Use the Paxton Utility Cart as a bar. Pair it with a couple Paxton Bookshelves to create the impressive display shown here.
Wicker and Rattan Furniture
Seems like we are kicking it old school with the trends this year. Making an epic comeback is Wicker and Rattan Furniture! Going for relaxing, beachy vibes? How about some retro, Boho chic vibes? Natural and warm, Wicker and Rattan furniture has a lightness and a breeziness to it that makes it a fresh and complementary addition to any space. Rattan and Wicker is also a beautiful choice for lighting, in case you are in need of a way to tie in your Rattan accent piece with the rest of your space.
Interested in adding some Rattan and Wicker furniture to your home? Say no more! Our Bali Armchair is a beautiful piece crafted in Kubu Rattan and features an iron base making it the perfect piece for homes partaking in the Industrial Modern trend. Picture the Bali Armchair paired with the Nottingham Dining Table or picture it as an accent chair in the bedroom beside the Nottingham Platform Bed-- absolutely stunning.
Other pieces that fit in with this trend are our Churchill and Rivalto Chairs. The Churchill and Rivalto Chairs feature solid elm wood frames and Rattan seats. More traditional in design, the Churchill and Rivalto evoke a retro, vintage feel that is exquisitely trendy right now.
Looking for a unique piece? Thinking about dabbling in the practices of meditation and mindfulness? Have I got the chair for you! The Transcendence Meditation Chair is artfully crafted and features a Rattan frame and Kapok filled cushions with 100% cotton covers. A beautiful chair that is meant to help your mental health and is an equally stunning, stand-alone piece, the Transcendence Meditation Chair will elevate your space and your mind.
Natural Fabric Bedding
I think it’s pretty clear by now that we at Haiku are fans of natural, clean materials. Despite the continued, relatively high popularity of colorful, decorative bedding, it seems more and more people are becoming aware of the environmental impact of synthetic materials and the negative effects they have on your sleep environment. Time to swap out the funky polyester pattern for clean and natural sheets and duvets. Breathe easy and sleep deeply with the moisture wicking, temperature regulating, all-natural wool of the Natural Sleep Organic Merino Wool Comforter. Dive right into your Organic Cotton Sheets. Curl up on your Shambho Hull and Wool Pillow while you dream of happy times and magical places. Sleep is essential to our health and overall well-being. Make the best of it with all-natural bedding you can just sink right into.
Green, green, and more green. Over the past few years, different shades of green have been in style, but it seems like this year green in general is taking center stage. Most popular of all are muted, gray-toned, shades of green such as Sage Green. Natural and organic, the color green brings the tranquility and serenity of the outdoors into the home. Of course, green is not everyone’s cup of tea, however the gray tones in Sage Green give it a softness that transforms it into a neutral shade capable of being paired with a wide range of colors. If you’re thinking of repainting your home or were looking to introduce a new color into your décor, Sage Green is an excellent and sophisticatedly stylish choice.
Have you heard of the term Granny Chic? Me neither, at least not before today, but it really is the best way to describe the revival of wallpaper. For a long time, wallpaper was considered outdated and tacky. We swapped out the ornate walls for the solid “accent wall” but one of the best things about Modern furniture is the minimalist design which allows for more ornate decorative pieces and wall décor. This new combination is the perfect balance. Rather than overwhelming the senses, ornate wallpaper can highlight the simple elegance of Scandinavian or Japanese Modern furniture. Reversely, the simplicity of modern furniture cannot overpower the beauty of ornate wallpaper. In case you were in need of a fun, home improvement summer project, SEARCH NO FURTHER and paper those walls!
