As 2024 draws closer, it’s time to embrace the interior design trends that promise to transform our living spaces and redefine the way we use our homes.
It’s true that certain interior elements, like traditional wooden furniture, transcend seasonal and changing trends, remaining timeless even as styles fluctuate. But, nonetheless, a new year brings fresh ideas and ways in which even the most enduring of pieces can breathe new life into your home.
So what are the interior design trends you should know about as we ease ourselves into 2024?
1. Darker wooden furniture
Pale, Scandi-inspired interiors will never truly go out of fashion, but in 2024, it’s set to be all about deeper, more vintage-inspired tones. Darker woods such as teak, walnut and mahogany have gained popularity throughout 2023, and the trend will continue into 2024, as we embrace the warmth and cosiness they bring to a space.
Richer tones also bring an air of luxury and sophistication, which we’re all striving for as entertaining at home continues its renaissance in the aftermath of the pandemic.
2. Sustainable materials
With every year that passes we become more aware of our responsibility to protect our planet. As a result, eco-friendly materials are more popular than ever, as we try to live more sustainably. Furniture crafted from sustainably-sourced wood, and pieces designed to last the test of time will continue to grow in popularity throughout 2024 as a result.
3. Investment pieces
One of the best ways to live more sustainably is to buy better, and buy less. This extends to our interior tastes, with trends now swinging firmly in the direction of carefully considered statement pieces.
Traditional wooden furniture, for example, can be costly, but it’s timeless both in design and function. And with vintage furniture as in vogue as ever, you can blend two trends by investing in a piece that will last the test of time.
4. Embracing curves
A move away from angular architecture and straight lines, and towards softer curves and more rounded designs is a restorative trend for 2024. It swaps the crisp and clinical for an altogether more welcoming, relaxing environment, something we all wish to create in our homes.
Curved furniture such as sideboards, coffee tables and seating will soften the overall aesthetic, creating a more sociable, inviting space.
5. Natural materials
Events of the past few years have been unsettling, and so now more than ever we are striving to feel grounded, safe and relaxed in our living spaces. For this reason, we’ll continue to be drawn to natural materials in 2024, such as wood, wool and stone.
Not only do they help create a connection to nature, but their natural earthy tones and tactility creates both comfort in familiarity, and an inspiring sense of vitality.
6. Clever solutions
Our homes must work harder than ever nowadays, with space at a premium and the boundaries between work and home life remaining somewhat blurred. Open-plan living continues to be popular, but with added emphasis on multi-functional spaces and space-saving storage.
As a result, clever bespoke furniture that can fulfil a variety of needs will boom in 2024, such as hideaway home office desks and built-in, subtle storage.
