1. city of Angles
This style is all about geometrics and angular designs. Think shelves, ottomans, or anything that brings a new perspective to your traditional decor.

Metal makes for a powerful statement in a simple space. Use this to your advantage by pairing various types of metallic furnishings with softer elements for a noteworthy new look.
3. Globally Inspired
We’re all for making a room feel more vibrant and fun. This trend plays exactly to that. Here, Moroccan pieces are mixed with rich hues to give the space character and a more worldly feel.
4. Graphic content
Add some eye-catching patterns and lots of bright hues and suddenly you’ve got a space that’s right in tune with this trend. When it comes to designing, a good rule of thumb is the more eclectic and over-the-top, the better!
5. Hard vs. Soft
In a battle of the elements, we pair light flowy pieces against harsher shapes and style. The result? One beautiful area that’s perfectly in sync.
6. cAned, Rattan, wicker
These artisanal items aren’t just for your beach vacay. Bring them home with a classic lounge chair, pendant, or coffee table to create a totally laid-back look.
7. SCULPTURAL INFLUENCES
Add art to your home (without actually investing in it) by using everyday items like a tray or table featuring creative angles and silhouettes. We promise: It’ll completely transform your room.
8. THIN LINES AND UNBALANCED MOMENTs
With this trend, all styles are fair game. From modern to vintage, anything that incorporates lines and thin figures will create a sense of unbalance that still looks chic.
9. CLEAN-LINED TRADITIONAL
Bring back the classics with a fashion that’s focused entirely on traditional furnishings. But unlike your Great Aunt Suzy’s settings, these are finished off with pretty patterns and upholstery for a totally fresh and feminine take.
10. TOUGH AND STRONG TEXTURE
Match a tough leather couch with some colorful, textured throws and you’ve got this trend down in a nutshell. Of course, extra decorative pieces (like a faux fur throw) are always encouraged as well.
11. BOLD COlor, ELEGANT LINES
Teal, turquoise, and fuchsia, oh my! If there was ever a time to introduce some flashy colors to your room, this is it. Match these hues against a sleek slipper chair or sofa and let the elegant lines bring the entire ensemble together.
This may not be your music genre, but it sure could be your decorating one. To implement, add contrasting metallic tones together in one area. We’ve got our eyes on a sleek office or guest room upgrade.
