Keeping Up With Five Furniture Trends

October 15, 2021|In Interior Designers, SD Blog|By Rachel

Interior design involves the successful combination of design elements that come together to create a cohesive space. Furniture has always been a key element as having the wrong table, accent chair, or couch can throw off the flow and harmony in a room. Here are five trends designers should incorporate in their next great room design for a balanced and harmonious space sure to please the most demanding of clients.

Geometric Shapes

Bluffview Home Design by Jan Showers

When thinking of geometric shapes from an interior design perspective, you may envision a patterned rug or types of tile. Yet, the most eye-catching geometric shapes are those included in the structural design of furniture. The National Gallery of Art defines geometric shapes as “precise and regular, like squares, rectangles, and triangles.” Jan Showers, a glamorous Dallas-based designer, created Bluffview Residence, a modern home constructed in 2014. Showers utilized accent chairs with hexagonal backings to bring body to this space. Also, she added a gold rectangular end and coffee table to supply sharp lines that offer a clean visual experience.


Veere Grenney Associates, founded by Veere Grenney, has over 30 years of design experience. The team created a serene space at a country home in Norfolk, England. The touches of blue bring vibrancy to the room. When creating a multi-layered atmosphere such as this country home, the pops of blue offer appealing contrast to the historic, warm-toned home. 

Woven Furniture

Woven furniture provides texture and warmth to any space. Studio Designer client Amanda Lindroth, the founder of Amanda Lindroth Design, created a dream home called the Master Cottage. This home is abundant in woven furniture that is elegant and friendly. You can find this woven furniture in many stores, but only a designer with a keen eye for detail utilizes it to create such a magical space. Additionally, Lindroth has a store where you can purchase some of these beautiful woven pieces.

Wood Grain

Mother and son duo Kathleen and Tommy Clements are the designers behind Clements Design. Together they design artistic and luminous spaces ranging from a wide range of clients, including celebrities.
