Design Trends: Where They Come From And How Long They Last

What Is An Interior Design Trend?

 

  • It’s essentially a fashion; something that’s become popular for a certain amount of time.
  • A trend could be described as the colours, styling, materials, patterns, and shapes of a particular season that produces a long-term effect on the market.
  • A trend might be derived from current world affairs and events, and from previous season’s trends.

Where Do Trends Come From?

 

Perhaps the biggest impact of trends comes from the world around us. Trends can be influenced by a specific situation and the culture built around it. Some trends recycle and come back at a later time.

 

Every new year comes with new design trends that explode onto the scene. Each trend is propelled into the limelight by the happenings that are occurring in the world.

 

It can be a real challenge for people who work with interiors to discern the direction the interior design scene will be taking, in addition to the colours, materials, and styles that will most appeal to consumers during the various seasons of the coming year.

It’s not always easy for anyone to predict the next major design trend. Determining what will drive that trend can be difficult and requires much detailed research and lots of observation.

 

When it comes to trend forecasting, it’s always advisable to stay in touch with your own sense of what feels fresh. And while trends can be fun, not everyone has the luxury of changing out their homes just because there’s an exciting new trend. You need to find a way to balance your personal style with what’s trending. For example, let’s say there’s a trendy new colour you love. Why not paint your walls? It’s the least expensive and easiest way to infuse a new trend into your space.

 

The 2021 Salone Del Mobile Milano

 

The Salone del Mobile 2021 was held in Milan, Italy from 5-10 September. With four pavilions, the event drew over 60,000 visitors who came to see over 1,900 interior design projects from designers and brands from Italy and around the world. Featuring cutting-edge designs in all areas of interior design, from furniture and lighting to textiles and accessories, the Salone del Mobile is one of the premier events for interior design professionals and enthusiasts alike. Whether you’re a designer looking for inspiration or simply someone with a passion for interior design, the Salone del Mobile provides an excellent opportunity to explore innovative interior design trends and techniques. By all accounts, the 2021 fair was no exception!

 

Introducing Biophilic Interior Design

 

Biophilic design is an interior design trend that seeks to connect people with nature. The term comes from the Greek word “bios,” which means “life,” and “philos,” which means “love.” This philosophy is based on the idea that humans are innately attracted to nature, and that exposure to natural elements can have a positive impact on our health and well-being.

Biophilic design trends were prominent at the 2021 Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan, Italy. One popular example is the use of living walls, which are vertical gardens that can be used to add a pop of greenery to any space. Organic materials like wood and stone can help to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere. Another popular trend includes the incorporation of natural light – a key element of biophilic design.

 

Anyone can incorporate biophilic design into their home by incorporating one or more of these trends.

 

Using Dividers To Create Multi-Functional Spaces

 

Divider walls are one of the most effective ways to create multi-functional spaces in your home. With interior design trends trending towards open-plan living, people are now looking for ways to divide up their spaces and create separate areas for different functions. The Salone Del Mobile furniture fair in Milan, Italy, introduced this concept to the world in 2021, and it has since become a popular interior design trend.

One common way to incorporate divider walls into your home is with room dividers. These can be used as both decorative and functional elements, creating distinct areas within a room while also giving you privacy from the rest of your space. For example, you might use wall panels or movable screens to create a cosy reading nook or workspace away from where you sleep and relax. Another option is to install floor-to-ceiling shelving systems that help define and organize different parts of your home, such as a bookshelf partition that separates your lounge area from the kitchen.

 

Whatever method you choose, using dividers can help you create custom multi-functional spaces tailored specifically to your needs and personal preferences. So if you’re looking for something new in interior design, why not try incorporating divider walls into your home?

 

Incorporating Interior Design Trends and Fads

When it comes to interior design, trends and fads can be difficult to distinguish. A trend is defined as a style or look that’s popular for a certain period of time, while a fad is a trend that quickly becomes popular and then fades away just as quickly. Many interior designers look to the Salone Del Mobile, an annual furniture fair in Milan, for inspiration when it comes to new trends. However, it’s important to keep in mind that these trends are meant to be interpreted into one’s personal style, rather than blindly followed. After all, not everyone wants to redecorate their entire home every time a new trend emerges. By understanding the difference between trends and fads, interior designers can help their clients create looks that are timeless and unique.
