Top 2017 Design Trends
It’s hard to believe 2017 is right here but it is, which means looking ahead to see what things will saturate the world of design this year. There will always be surprises when it comes to what trend takes off, but we anticipate these five elements will be right along with them. Take a look.
PANTONE recently announced the PANTONE Color of the Year for 2017 and it’s a beautiful, fresh spring green, which means the design world is going to be paying close attention to products in that color. Blu Dot’s Nook Bed is the perfect shade for staying on-trend all throughout 2017 and beyond.
Patterns might be one of those things that will always be a trend, but graphic, abstract patterns seems to be making a big return to the design world. Missoni Home is the perfect brand to spearhead the movement, as they’re the masters of gorgeous patterns. The undulating black and white pattern on the Safi 601 Cylinder Pouf will add a unique and bold piece of functional art to any room.
3. Saturated colors
We’re had a few years of pastels being fairly abundant meaning rich, saturated colors are on the upswing. Keep your eyes out for emerald greens, sapphire blues, and ruby reds in home decor. Designed by Scholten and Baijings for Thomas Eyck, the t.e. 032 Cushion – Dark Blue features bands of vivid blues that will wake up any sofa or bed.
It’s no surprise that cork is being integrated into today’s designs, as the natural material is lightweight, pretty durable, soft to the touch, and has some give to it. Jasper Morrison used the material in the Cork Stools he designed for Vitra. Available in three silhouettes, the stools are both practical and super fun.
Another natural material and we expect it to continue to soar in the new year, especially being mixed with other types of materials. This Suburbia Wall Storage from Seletti is not only really clever in its design, but it’s a useful way to contain all of your odds and ends that never seem to have a home. Typically these types of storage units are made of plastic, but we love the idea of adding elements of wood to the walls.
