Trends of the Coming 2018 Year

2018 is just around the corner, few days and 2017 is long gone. FurnitureCart team is ready to guide you into the trends of the coming year and make a forecast on the future interior decor that will be worth admiring. So, make yourself comfortable because we are taking you forward to the future!

The New Year is coming really soon, so undoubtedly, it’s the best time to get the old out and be in with the new. The same logic applies for many things including furniture rearrangement. Whether bedroom or living room, dining room or outdoor furniture, it still needs to have it’s own new zest. What is on trend in the coming new year? It is still about the comfort, even extra one, it is about nostalgia and emeralds, minimalism and nature, but let’s talk about it step by step.

Comfort Zone. The coming year comes with the sign of even bigger and brighter comfort in furniture. Don’t keep the sectionals and chairs in frames, just let it go and make it as soft and cosy as you can. Boxy is gone, curvy comes to the stage. Designers call it «cocoonection», so join the club.

Simplicity First. Comfort also means simplicity of design and a tasteful minimalism in furniture that wraps to invite reflection and meditation. Soft, giving sofas and enveloping chairs are upholstered in heavier fabrics, which absorb sound.

Emerald Isle. It’s not about the gemstones and Ireland, but on-trend furniture of 2018 will get something from both – the color. If 2017 was in the pink, 2018 is with emerald, going deeper in greenery. Though, do not rush to push pink out of the stage, pale “millennial pink” still holding positions strong.

Mother Nature. As we have mentioned above, greenery will be top color in all the shades. Moreover, the nature is carrying the palm the next year. Lush gardens, jungle motifs, nature patterns bring the stylish homes to full Edenic glory. Don’t forget about the stones and natural wood, it will give the brand new touch of an indoor idyll.

Rewind It! Do you feel nostalgic sometimes? We do also! The same do the designers, proving that the next year will still keep the roots in mind and take the best retro trends for the 2018 new home. Taking it from the past and rethinking the design in tune with the times – that is what makes it still look like familiar, but fresh at the same time.

Our brief summary brought you forward into the coming year, and we hope it was exciting to take a quick glance before the bigger journey into 2018. Enjoy your holidays and stay inspired with FurnitureCart!

How to Arrange Furniture in Your Living Room

The space size does not matter, if you have the furniture arranged right in your living room – you will enjoy it to the full extent. Just use few of our quick advice and make your living room truly cool!

When arranging furniture, leave room for traffic and the ‘entryway’ free. Make several seating islands (landing spaces). If you have a fireplace in your room – place cosy sofa and a pair of chairs facing each other. Add end tables for visual balance and a touch of functionality. Facing chairs and sofa towards each other are good also because it does encourage conversation. Our tip: place seating no more than 8 feet apart!

Place the seating so it takes advantage of the view your room has to offer. It might be TV or spacious window. Or you might like to create your own focal point by placing the wallart or making photo wall, or even placing console, bookshelves or etagere with your favorite objects. Another useful tip: It is better to place the television so the screen faces away from the sunlight.

Coffee table in between the seating island is a must. Frame the space with cabinets for storage, placed around the perimeter of your room, along the walls. If the space is shrunk, use round tables between chairs and a couch. The curves of the round tables are better for moving around them without sacrificing the territory invaded and for the safe navigation around.

Family and living rooms are usually considered to be the storage hub. Keep it organized if it’s your case as well. Here come entertainment walls and media consoles with storage for rescue.

Living room should have enough of light to be beloved spot. Let the windows provide enough sunlight into your room. For the evening cosiness use the lighting: chandeliers, sconces, and lamps keep it bright. Use your creative imagination flow and make the marvelous room for you and your guests to enjoy!

How to Protect Your Furniture During a Party

Christmas season usually means rushing around, big sales, shopping for the presents for friends and family members, and stressful preparations for parties and dinners. Still, Furniturecart team recommends to slow down and keep in mind what makes Christmas so magical – togetherness, tradition and people around. Bring everyone together for a fun party at your home and do not worry for the consequences. Create wonderful lasting memories for the little kids and get them involved in festive activities for you to both enjoy the holiday season.It only takes a few minutes prior to the event to ensure no unfortunate party ‘memorable gifts’ are found on your couch, dining room set or rug. Follow our simple advice and stay calm!It is fine if you want to protect your furniture and carpeting. And if you do care – cover what you want to be protected. It’s better to invest in a few inexpensive but nice area rugs and couch covers. Before the party begins, place the rugs in areas where the guests are expected. Protect your sofas, chairs or anything that’s upholstered with a decorative throw or fitted cover. It’s an investment keeping you safe from your beloved upholstered living room set replacement. Christmas-themed tablecloth on your gorgeous dining table will serve both protection and festive-mood booster for the guests.

Well before the party have your carpets and upholstered furniture properly cleaned. Psychologically, if the guests see your rugs are spotless and flawless, they’re more likely to remain thoughtful with their glass of red wine or punch.You might have removed extra furniture, accessories to the other rooms or you want to keep some rooms safe from kids, who might have use them when playing hide-and-seek. Establish “do not enter” areas. But leave enough space in the major room for the party and strolling around.

Provide few occasional tables and make sure the major table for the Christmas dinner is big enough to keep all your delicious festive meals. Cocktail and coffee tables are a good idea, as the absence of better options often forces guests to set their drink or plate on any available surface. Before the party, set up the tables in strategic places around, for instance close to your media console/television stand, couches or anywhere people gather.As the party slowly winds down, perform several walk-throughs to pick garbage and empty glasses. This approach has a double service as other than keeping your furniture and carpets spotless, it also makes the clean-up faster after your event is over. Undoubtedly, don’t forget to enjoy yourself during the festive event. Follow the simple protection rules, relax and enjoy the most wonderful holiday season!
