Live naturally, live greener, live more efficiently: these are just three of the eight trends in living that are on the rise. More and more people are rethinking and changing their consumer behavior – towards sustainability, high quality and a conscious decision not to consume. In stressful times, your own home is increasingly becoming the center of your life and due to rising rents and scarce living space, the need for space-saving, universally applicable and flexible furniture is increasing. In this article we will show you the latest furniture trends 2023 specifically for the living room, bathroom, dining room, bedroom, quest room, and hallway.
The demands on living are changing: living is becoming more and more expensive and the need for single apartments will continue to increase. The result is smaller but still affordable apartments that are intended to embody the longing for retreat into a cozy home. When it comes to seating such as sofas or armchairs, the trend is towards round, natural and soft shapes that exude a lot of cosiness.
Organic shapes exude pleasant calm and support a balanced spatial effect, which is particularly effective with upholstered furniture. Subtle, natural and earthy shades such as shades of gray, brown, beige or off-white, but also various shades of blue and delicate pastel colors additionally reinforce this effect. The living trend for seating is changing not only in terms of cosiness and comfort, but also in terms of flexibility. Modular sofas, which with their various individual elements can be individually combined with one another and adapt to any changing living situation, are on the rise.
The trend towards naturalness and sustainability is also evident in living room furniture in terms of material. Solid wood furniture that lasts a long time and, at best, can be inherited once, is very popular. Compact shapes and straight designs without a lot of frills are more in demand than ever, because they can be combined with any furnishing style and save space.
Sideboards with plenty of storage space, but above all the showcase from the 90s, are currently experiencing a comeback. The piece of furniture that used to be almost ostentatious for presenting grandma’s porcelain and all kinds of kitsch and odds and ends is used in a more versatile way today. Behind glass – which is currently very popular again – you can store drinking glasses, fine vases and sculptures as well as books and illustrated books.
The Viennese braid is also experiencing a revival. The classic in the style of old coffee house furniture, which has been around for almost 200 years, is not only used on chairs. The wickerwork made of rattan – especially in combination with modern furniture – also cuts a fine figure on cabinet fronts, beds, chests of drawers and side tables. The slightly exotic look of the Viennese wickerwork is particularly suitable for light and earthy tones.
In addition to an individual style of clothing, living is now the number one personal means of expression – every decorative element becomes a clear statement. The same motto applies to the living room decor trends 2023: less is more – overloaded opulence is out. Straightforward, line-of-the-line accessories will continue to set the tone in 2023.
When it comes to materials, we also want our decorative items and accessories to be natural, cozy and homely. Linen, leather, wood, sisal, stone and other natural materials are still in high demand. First and foremost the material glass, which was already part of the absolute living trend in the 90s. In addition to showcases and glass side tables, the trend for vases, drinking glasses and goblets is also moving towards a glass look. Particularly thick, solid glass is in demand, the feel of which feels good and exudes high quality. Here, too, the design language is clear, reduced, not very ornate and flowing organic.
The current living trends have long since found their way not only in living rooms and bedrooms, but also in our bathrooms. Our increasing need for more comfort and a relaxed feel-good atmosphere does not stop at the wet rooms either: The times of boring, monotonous, dark and musty bathrooms are long history – rather, they are being transformed into stylish rooms with a special charm. Personality that expresses itself in an individual style is popular. In this post we show you the most important bathroom trends and ideas for 2023.
German adults spend an average of one hour a day in the bathroom. It can be cozy – a feel-good room in which we like to spend time and which at best becomes a welcome wellness temple. If you are currently planning to completely redesign your bathroom, then you cannot ignore the current furniture trends. Wide door sills, height-adjustable washbasins or walk-in showers are important elements if you are already thinking about a comfortable life in old age and corresponding accessibility.
The latest trends, which also take into account the aspect of a certain comfort, hygiene and quick accessibility when cleaning, can be seen in rimless toilets, touchless fittings and free-standing bathtubs. Rimless toilets, which for a long time were only used in hospitals or airplanes, are increasingly in demand. Your advantage is obvious: the elimination of the flushing rim minimizes the area or the space that is often difficult to access and in which all kinds of dirt, limescale and bacteria nest.
Contactless fittings, which we know and appreciate from the toilet rooms of restaurants, for example, make it possible to get the water to flow with just a small movement in the direction of the fitting. In terms of colors and styles, whatever you like is allowed. The classic white is still trendy and always timeless, fittings in a retro look bring a touch of vintage to the bathroom and the combination with waterproof floorboards & wood laminate or bathroom carpets in earthy tones creates a warm expression.
When it comes to bathroom furniture, vanity units, a mirror cabinet over the washbasin, wall units or sideboards are still popular. Towels, cosmetics, etc. have a permanent place in their well-thought-out interior, and everything is neatly and tidily stowed behind cabinet doors and drawers. Bathroom furniture is now available in many different colors and materials, the only important thing is that it must be suitable for damp rooms and be able to withstand splashes of water.
The right lighting also contributes to the feel-good atmosphere. In times when the good old light bulb has had its day, efficient LED lights are now also being used in the bathroom. They unfold their full brightness immediately after being switched on, are available in many color spectrums and are also dimmable. Whether in the form of lamps, spotlights or individually usable LED strips: good light ensures good visibility and a good mood.
When it comes to decoration, plants can no longer be missing in the bathroom. Indoor plants support a positive indoor climate and partially process the moisture and unpleasant smells typical of the bathroom. For more humid rooms like the bathroom, palm trees or other subtropical plants, which look particularly pretty and natural in trendy bamboo baskets, are particularly suitable. If there is little space, hanging baskets with an ivy or a fern that you can hang from the ceiling are also suitable.
Candles in abundance naturally provide plenty of romance, warmth and pleasant light. And with other small, selected and lovingly arranged decorative objects, you can turn your bathroom into a real wellness temple.
The modern bathroom is an oasis of comfort for the senses. Towels and other bathroom textiles made from natural materials should not be missing. Linen towels are ideal because they absorb moisture better than conventional terry towels, are gentle on the skin and dry faster due to their lower density. They are also noble and simple.
Increasing mobility and the expansion of location-independent networks mean that the guest room is becoming more and more important. Regardless of whether the distant grandparents come to visit or friends from their student days – the guests should feel comfortable. At the same time, apartments are becoming smaller and smaller, and rooms are being used more openly and often multifunctionally, e.g. as home offices or storage rooms. In small guest rooms in particular, it is therefore important to create a feel-good space with clever, space-saving and multifunctional furnishings. We’ll show you the guest room tricks that have proven themselves and trends that are emerging.
The most important piece of furniture in a guest room is the bed. If you have little space in the guest room, then fold-out sofa beds are ideal. They offer several guests a comfortable place to sit and relax during the day and are converted into a comfortable bed at night.
Even a folding bed or a narrow armchair bed doesn’t take up much space and can be tidied up quickly. Particularly practical: some beds are also available on castors so that they can be easily moved to the desired location whenever necessary. A practical shelf next to the bed is also very useful. On a small side table or bedside table there is space for personal items, reading after work or a nightcap. A bedside lamp brings comfort and provides additional light directly on the bed.
If you want to divide the room into different areas, e.g. to separate a workplace from the sleeping area, then room dividers or standing shelves are ideal. They are the new trend for flexibly structuring rooms and changing functions if necessary.
Shelves and room dividers provide privacy and offer space for your own purposes as well as your guests to store all kinds of belongings well stowed away. Nicely decorated with decorative objects, they also ensure more cosiness in the room.
If visitors only stay for the weekend or a few days, then a massive wardrobe is not absolutely necessary. In order to create options for storing clothes, you can choose a coat stand, coat rail or individual coat hooks that you can mount on the wall in any number to save space. Unusual cloakroom accessories in rooms outside the hallway are a new trend that is also finding its way into guest rooms. You can find more cloakroom furniture HERE.
Fluffy carpets ensure a particularly cozy atmosphere. They provide warmth and comfort and create a feel-good atmosphere as soon as you enter. A high-quality carpet in the guest room looks luxurious and gives guests a feeling of appreciation. In addition, carpets give the room structure and support the division, which is particularly advantageous if the guest room is also an office or hobby room.
Furniture Trends 2023 For Bedroom
Our home is our refuge from the stresses of everyday life. In our bedrooms we find a sense of security, leave stress and worries behind and recharge our batteries for the next day. It is all the more important to create a cozy, feel-good atmosphere in the bedroom too, in which we can relax and let go. We show you the most important bedroom trends for 2023.
The bedroom should be our place of rest and relaxation. The body wants to relax and recharge its batteries. This works best in an environment that exudes a lot of calm and naturalness. Natural materials and soft colors are particularly suitable for this. Subtle green tones, various blue tones – reminiscent of the vastness of the sea, earthy tones but also delicate pastel colors have a particularly calming effect. The materials can be just as reserved and natural. Furniture made of wood that exudes a pleasant atmosphere is therefore in great demand. Solid wood furniture in different types of wood in particular promises durability and underlines the trend towards sustainability.
Clear lines and restrained structures paired with a high level of comfort and functionality: this is how the Nordic furnishing style is evident, which is still very popular. The mostly light color scheme of the furniture can be easily combined with comfortable textiles and accessories in gray, pastel or earthy colors. This includes decorative details such as duvet covers, bedspreads or a cozy blanket as well as carpets that transform your bedroom into a cozy and cozy place.
It is particularly important in small bedrooms with little space to create clever storage space for clothes, blankets and other items. The space under the bed can be used sensibly for this purpose. Beds with drawers are therefore very much in vogue. Models that have small storage compartments or shelves integrated in the head area, for example for storing books, are now available and will be in greater demand in the future.
The spatial division is becoming more and more flexible and a bedroom no longer has to be hidden behind closed doors. Partition walls and room dividers are the new stars of the facilities, which enable spontaneous design depending on the current circumstances.
A restrained decoration with selected stylish individual pieces creates peace and clarity. With individual, nicely framed photos on the walls or above the bed, or a beautiful glass vase on the sideboard, individual statements can be made that do not appear overloaded.
Plants that create a natural atmosphere will also move into our bedrooms in the future. But not only that – certain indoor plants purify the air during the night and thus promote healthy and restful sleep. Above all the bow hemp, which absorbs CO2 and at the same time releases oxygen. In addition, the bow hemp is extremely robust and easy to care for, because it requires little water and hardly any fertilization.
We state: the bedroom of the future should enable relaxation and switch off from stressful everyday work and should be decorated by the tonality in natural colors, with cozy and color-coordinated home accessories and green plants. Functional furniture emphasizes the flexibility of lifestyles and biographies in the bedroom too.
Our living is changing, the living spaces will in the future more and more overflow into one another, because we want it to be cozy, light and airy. Dining rooms are also increasingly being integrated into living spaces and are no longer separate rooms where people only meet to eat. Open rooms in combination with the kitchen and dining room or even the living room are absolutely trendy and are increasingly forming a harmonious unit in which we feel completely at ease. In this blog article, we show which furnishing ideas will shape the image in the dining room in the future.
Dining Chairs Trends 2023
When it comes to dining room chairs, the trend is clearly towards cosiness! Shell chairs with comfortable armrests are not only comfortable, they are also extremely stylish and bring a lot of living comfort to the dining table.
Upholstered chairs, which can be lavishly furnished, are now also available in many trendy designs and materials. Noble velvet fabrics in rich colors such as blue or green are all the rage here, but powdery tones such as pink or a colorful mustard yellow also bring lightness and a lot of elegance to the dining table. Benches, which offer plenty of space to sit, especially when there is little space, also offer a lot of comfort and cosiness. In combination with matching chairs, benches can be used as a special design accent.
Even with dining tables, the trend is towards cosiness and a feel-good atmosphere. Tables made of natural materials in good quality with a long service life are more in demand than ever – above all dining tables made of solid wood.
With their unmistakable charm, solid wood dining tables are a whole lot ahead of the cheap disposable furniture made of pressboard. Especially wooden tables in light colors can also be combined with dining room chairs in lush colors.
Whether for presentation or storage: showcases that were very popular in the 90s are now making their comeback again. The approximately one meter high cabinets are similar to the highboards, but have a glass front or glass door on at least one side.
Showcases are therefore the perfect place to provide an elegant stage for all sorts of favorite items: whether in the living room, in the kitchen or in the dining room – fine crockery, glasses and valuable art objects become eye-catchers behind glass and are at the same time well protected from dust and dirt. Showcases with tinted panes are particularly trendy, but they are also available in many other variants, such as space-saving hanging showcases or models that stand on feet and thus appear particularly light and airy.
The hallway is the first room in an apartment that we and our guests enter. The “calling card” of our home today goes far beyond the purely functional aspect – comfort is the new trend, because not only our visitors, but also we ourselves want to enter a beautiful and lovingly designed room when we leave and come home every day. In this article we will show you the current hallway trends for 2023 and how you can make your hallway cozy with just a few simple steps.
Bulky combination cloakroom furniture is out of place, especially in a small or narrow hallway. Instead, rely on practical cloakroom rails or individual cloakroom hooks that you can attach to the wall in an unlimited number to save space. Jackets, coats, scarves & Co. are clearly stowed away and always ready to hand.
An additional compact chest of drawers or a narrow sideboard offers additional storage space for all the things that you would prefer to store behind closed doors or drawers. They also offer a presentation area for pretty decorative objects that give your hallway more cosiness. Individual wall shelves, which do not take up any unnecessary space and on which you can perfectly stage your artistic favorite pieces, provide even more decoration space.
Seating furniture is practical and comfortable at the same time for putting on and taking off shoes in the hallway. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an expansive armchair, a bench in combination with the shoe compartments underneath kills two birds with one stone: further cleverly used storage space and a cozy place to sit down.
Doormats are practical and prevent unnecessary dirt from entering the hallway when entering. However, they are not particularly inviting, so you can bring an extra dose of cosiness into your hallway with a beautiful carpet. Carpets in bright colors and patterns in particular ensure freshness and form an extra eye-catcher, models in muted earth tones bring naturalness and a lot of inviting warmth into the room.
Light sources also create a pleasant atmosphere. Since hallways are rarely provided with sufficient daylight, you can use suitable lamps to ensure sufficient brightness and a cozy atmosphere. Directly illuminating ceiling spots are suitable for narrow and elongated corridors, but also several light sources, such as a floor lamp in a free corner or a table lamp on the dresser or sideboard bring a lot of light and also conjure up a pleasant atmosphere. Mirrors, which you can place on the wall anywhere in the hallway, also ensure more brightness and optical width. In addition, nicely framed mirrors are always an eye-catcher and a great alternative to photos and pictures.
When it comes to modern hallway trends, plants are also right at the forefront. Plants bring liveliness and naturalness to the room and can be accommodated almost anywhere, even in small hallways. When choosing a houseplant for a hallway with little light, make sure that the plant can cope well with little light and, if necessary, drafts. For example, the bow hemp, begonias or ivy are suitable.
