Home Decoration Trends in 2015
In the wake of the world economic crisis, there now appears to be a sense of gathering global momentum. Accelerated development in economy, social activity and information technology is bringing energy, as well as new connections transcending old boundaries. As a result, product design is changing as well.
Good designers appreciate the fact that color decisions and home environment choices are not based on vague or fuzzy ideas. Learning about and identifying the directions of design development is key to capturing a glimpse of future home decoration trends.
Following the global economic downturn, there was a general trend towards nostalgia. This longing for better times was translated by designers in various ways. As we put the “bad times” further and further behind us, design trends seem to be crystallizing in two different directions; i.e. either classic or contemporary.
While designs are become more defined, colors seem to be moving in the opposite direction. We have observed that colors are becoming more indistinct and moderated, making designs appear softer and more intimate. Flashy “bling” colors are fading, while gentler color tones are becoming more popular. Unique colors and delicate tones provide a sense of balance and harmony.
Here are some of the overall trends we see in Home Decoration for 2014-2015:
Firstly, functional and practical industrial design is making a comeback.
Industrial elements have been very popular in home decoration design over the past few years. These elements have been rendered into many different kinds of home decoration products. At first, industrial elements were featured directly on products to emphasize strong industrialized feelings. However, this trend also has more practical and functional applications which focus on bringing consumers a more convenient living experience. This focus on convenience and functionality can be integrated into all kinds of home environments.
Secondly, solid geometric designs are trending.
Geometric elements have always been widely used in home decoration design. The designs, after many years of development have evolved from simple 2D elements into the exploration of 3D structures, resulting in numerous new designs. Innovative 3D structures and geometric patterns inspired by such things as cells and molecules bring consumers incredible visual impact.
The merging of global cultures is also influencing our home environment.
During the past decade, the advance of globalization, increased international economic activity and dissemination of the Internet has impacted nearly every aspect of our everyday living. Cultures of different regions are spreading to places where they’ve never been, resulting in numerous new and experimental variations. In terms of home decoration design, African style, neo-romanticism, oriental Zen, Persian style and many other niche cultural elements are mixing together to create astonishing new art forms and products.
Last but not least, innovative environment-friendly designs are the mainstream.
Environmental protection is no longer a concept just for marketing but, thanks to the push of various governmental policies and regulations is resulting in products with real, practical applications. Environmentally friendly designs, including recycling and up-cycling are emerging.
Traditional materials, such as raw woods, linen cloth, burlap ropes, and checked fabrics with simple natural moods harken back to an original appreciation of beauty. Additionally, new designs featuring galvanized steel, copper and other metals with original colors are in vogue, bringing additional innovation to environmentally friendly home decoration design.
With countless examples, it is widely accepted that trends associated with the changing environment will be very influential on home decoration product design. In the next few years, global economies are believed to be more stabilized which will result in harmonized home decoration designs representing calm, confidence, abundant hierarchies and self-explorations. We, as suppliers, traders or retailers ought to be prepared to embrace the future.
