Interior Design Trends to Watch for in 2019

In today’s life composing a living ambiance that uses not only trendy and aesthetic materials but also ones that can be recycled and used repeatedly is not just a preference, but it’s also becoming a responsibility. So without contradicting the two human desires – the aspiration for artistic, luxurious and stylish expression and the admiration towards nature and organic tactile sensations, we will introduce you the upcoming trends in movable and transforming furniture compositions, recyclable and natural materials and of course the small urban spaces design ideas with their multifunctional and smart forms. Or, in other words, everything that keeps the high artistic standards in harmonious interaction with nature 

The trend for luxury and rich expression is obvious when it comes to the soft sitting arrangements – sofas, armchairs, and ottomans – they are all big, soft, enveloping the body into velvet and rounded shapes. The designers usually combine them with marble cladding and surfaces, glass structures and furniture and aristocratic colored-metals: brass, copper, silver or golden shine

Although luxury is a constant trend for many brands. The innovation research and inspiration comes to exciting and sustainable discoveries at the furniture creation scene – the 3D printing comes to mind. Practical, flexible and easily arranged in the dynamic modern life flow, the contemporary 3D creations also have an added value. Some design studios and artist, which we will present to you further on, use sustainable bio-plastic to create their 3D project; others recycle and reuse the domestic plastic waste, but either way, they come to show that art and contemporary furniture creation can also be respectful towards the planet

Apart from these fresh, innovative elements, the traditional organic materials don’t lose their value: wood, glass, stone are still an excellent choice for the designers. The innovation here comes from the strength and durability of the materials. Lately, the glass is so durable that entire furniture’s are created by it, or it is used as a stable base for heavy marble tops. The terrazzo and terracotta presence is also an actual trend at the materials composition scene
