Modern Furniture Trends for Autumn 2018

Modern Furniture Trends for Autumn 2018

It's that time of year – temperatures are dropping, children are back at school, and barbecue season is coming to a close. With autumn comes new design and furniture trends to fit in with the cooler weather and more cozy times indoors!

We've compiled the top design and modern furniture trends for this autumn! Texture, colour, and brightness are the keys to staying in style this fall. For homes, offices, restaurants, shops, and more, these design trends for autumn will refresh your space!

Autumn Modern Furniture Trends

Navy Blue
Deep blues, like navy and royal blue, are the perfect colours for a cozy atmosphere, especially in the autumn and winter. Navy blue is luxurious in modern furniture like sofas or occasional chairs, and can make a statement if used as a paint colour.

Navy blue is dark enough that it is easy to match with, but still can be the pop of colour or statement piece in a room. Using it with grey, white, or black can all make trendy autumn designs.

Autumn Maple Orange
Bright orange was a huge colour trend this summer, and its cousin, maple orange, is a primary stylish colour for autumn. Orange is being associated with ideas like politics, exaggeration, and digital – all things modern. It is particularly effective as accessories, such as orange pillows, throws, art, or even rugs.

Feeling bold? With the right decor, you could even use a maple or burnt orange with navy blue to really encompass the colour trends!

Polished Metals (Chrome or Brass or Copper)
Polished metals, like chrome, brass, and copper, go in and out of modern furniture and design trends often. Sometimes matte finish is preferred, while only a few months later, polished and shiny metals might be in style. For this fall, they are definitely in style!

Chrome legs on furniture, brass chandeliers, copper decor – all of this fits into autumn 2018 furniture trends. While sometimes polished metals can be difficult to keep in good condition, if you take care of them well, they'll last you well beyond this season's trend!

We love chrome at sohoConcept because of it's timeless qualities. Many of our modern furniture pieces can be made with chrome legs.

Textured Fabrics
We've talked about textured fabrics in our blog before. Wool, velour, and tweed are just some of the popular textured fabrics this year. Specifically for autumn, velour is exploding in popularity. It is associated with warmth and comfort, making it the perfect material for a couch to curl up on during the chilly autumn and winter nights.

Oversized Florals
This trend is perfect for almost any type of furniture or decor. While you may not be on board with a floral couch or chair, having a modern floral print on the walls or as an area rug is right on trend this autumn.

Floral pillows, cushions, and bedding are also a great way to use this trend if you want to start more slowly. Floral patterns with bright colours and contrast are particularly modern and can completely change the aesthetic of a room. Particularly for restaurants or retail spaces, a floral mural can set a brand new tone for your business and welcome more people in.

Tactile Kitchen
Instead of kitchens with one counter type and one cupboard type throughout, kitchens are changing. This autumn, having more tactile kitchens with different patterns, materials, and furniture is the way to go when you're ready to renovate!

Using mismatched bar stools, wood block mixed with stone counter tops, unique islands, and varied cupboard materials attracts the eye to different areas and exudes the modern ideal of individuality and simplicity.
