A new report reveals what's on the horizon style-wise. Get ready to embrace orange, black kitchens, ottomans and poufs...
We might only be half way through the year, but the nature of interior design means one eye is always looking to the future.
To help offer insight into emerging trends, eporta – the world’s fastest growing interiors marketplace – and the leading trend service, WGSN, have launched their latest Interiors Trend Report for 2018/19.
The Report, which is out today
, found that over the past three months the fastest rising colour is orange, followed by yellow and pink. While red is the most searched for colour ever on eporta. Mix them all together and you’re looking at a gorgeous sunset aesthetic.
Ottomans are back: This deep yellow ottoman was made to order to match the stained glass window
Ottomans and poufs are having something of a renaissance, as both appear in top 10 furniture searches for first time ever. While searches for velvet have increased by 400% over past six months and is the most searched for fabric.
Meanwhile, glamorous pendants are the new chandeliers as they came out on top as the most searched-for lighting.
The trends for darker kitchen cabinetry and Scandi noir
help to explain the fact that searches including the term ‘black’ are up 93% in past six months, with matt and powdery finishes. While searches for old favourites glass and crystal have seen an increase of 44% over the past 12 months.
Searches for black interiors have sky rocketed
Mirror are also set to be huge but in its new guise as more of a statement art piece than a simple looking glass. And when it comes to wood, darker the better.
The Report analyses the buying trends and insights from search data amongst eporta’s 10,000+ interior trade buyers across 85 countries. Many of the findings are supported by the Pinterest 2018 Home Report,
which also came out recently. It found red interiors enjoyed a 215% increase in ‘saves’ globally, and framed plants saw a whopping 396% increase.
