SOFA, SO GOOD - SOFA TRENDS FOR 2020
These two factors of luxury and sustainability combined make for the most prominent trend for sofas heading into 2020. With an almost limitless choice of sofas available, lounge room furniture that combines a lasting and sustainable quality with the look and feel of luxury should be your goal. For sustainability, it’s always going to come down to the overall quality of the sofa.
SIZE DOES MATTER - OVERSIZED COMFORT
If you find yourself noticing that sofas seem to be getting bigger, you’re not wrong. This trend is real and only getting bigger. Where once a two-seat sofa was the norm, now it’s three-seaters, four-seaters and counting. These larger sofas have an obvious advantage when it comes to comfort, however, the scale of your chosen sofa should suit your living space. If you go too big in a small space, it can cramp your living area. When measuring for a sofa, be sure to include the measurements of depth, as well as the width and height.
VELVET REIGNS SUPREME
Luxurious, richly textured fabrics such as leather, velvet and suede are huge lounge trends for 2020. Velvet as the choice of fabric for lounge room furniture has been around for a few years, but it’s a look that’s not going anywhere – for good reason. Velvet is an especially appealing fabric, both visually and for its glorious texture. Nothing says plush, quite like a stylish velvet sofa. But be aware that velvet can change colour depending on the lighting, however this quirk of a lush, velvet pile can also be part of the appeal.
A POP OF COLOUR
Whether it’s a pop of pink, terracotta, yellow or jungle green, a coloured sofa can brighten up even the most bland of rooms. If you are unsure of choosing a distinctly coloured sofa, you could opt for an occasional chair in a bold colour for the same desired effect. Pops of pink in living spaces are currently huge in the UK and Europe, but terracotta is increasingly popular, adding an earthy element to your lounge setting. Jungle green is also increasingly used as the interior colour that most evokes nature, while a splash of yellow can brighten up any space.
