Metal Furniture

Metal pieces are commonly found in the legs of chairs, couches, and tables. Metal legs go well with both simple shapes as well as complex curves. The metal frames represent a modern/retro twist that brings back an urban industrial feeling to the living room.

Velvet is back and is here to stay. Velvet is another excellent option for mixing in retro and modern furniture. Keep in mind that there are different types of velvet; especially for couches, where a particular kind of velvet can completely change the room.

Here are a few velvet dos and don't from Herald Homes:

Dos and Don’ts

-Do opt for a chair in a weave or flat fabric to contrast with a velvet sofa.

-Don’t hesitate to mix different velvet textures in the same room.

-Do choose velvet in a colour that is modern, such as chartreuse and turquoise. It’s like mixing old and new.

-Do down-filled cushions on a velvet sofa or chair. It looks inviting and is very luxurious.

If you are the do-it-yourself type of person, you’ll enjoy the recycled furniture trend. Look for new pieces of refurbished materials into new furniture pieces in 2018.

There is nothing better than furniture that possesses the unique element of the craft. Some recycled examples are old crates or chests that are transformed into living room pieces. 

Old materials or not, recycled and reclaimed material made furniture is great for both urban apartments and homes in the suburbs. A great option is rustic wood, it makes for a warm living room, especially with dark colours to match!

Keeping it simple and relaxed.

Minimalism is all about the belief that less is more. Focus on adding furniture that emphasizes quality over quantity. A living room that focuses on quality furniture is spacious and inviting, great for social gatherings.
