In our last blog post we explored the world of fabric selections and the plethora of options to choose from, it’s now time to consider what we are expecting to see trending in 2024 - the use of vibrant colors and intricate details.
Berries and blues, along with reddish berry shades transitioning into purples, are making a strong statement. Plum berry colors are also gaining popularity, adding a touch of elegance to any space. These colors are often paired together to create a visually striking combination.
Plaid, a classic pattern, is making a comeback in the fabric world. It adds a timeless charm to furniture pieces and can be incorporated into various design styles. The Kravet showroom is showcasing a range of berry colors that seamlessly transition into corals and reds. These colors are expected to make a strong impact in the coming year.
Additionally, fabrics such as mohair and velvet are set to take center stage. While they require high maintenance, they offer excellent performance for active families. These fabrics are being used in a variety of ways, including combining them with croc leather for a luxurious touch.
The options do not stop with colors and materials. When it comes to laying out fabric, designers are exploring different techniques. Two-tone designs that incorporate animal prints are becoming increasingly popular. Thibeaux is one brand that offers a wide range of options in this style. Floral chairs with dressmaker details, such as pleats down the back and fabric-covered buttons, are also in vogue. Coordinating checks at the bottom add an extra layer of visual interest.
Contrasting welt is another popular choice to accentuate curves. While linear looks have been prevalent for some time, we are now witnessing the resurgence of curves, particularly on table aprons.
Furniture is being upholstered in the same fabric but with different orientations. Some have vertical or horizontal patterns in the middle, while others feature a bias for the welt. The seat is upholstered at a 90-degree angle, creating a diagonal effect. This unique approach adds depth and dimension to the overall design.
Mohair green chairs with contrast welt and nailhead details are also gaining attention for their intriguing aesthetic. Contrasting welt is another popular choice to accentuate curves.
