2016 Furniture Trends

Colours unsplashEverything points to 2016 being a year where muted hues and stark contrasting colour reign and ensuring your home, hotel or business is looking fresh for the New Year is easy to achieve.  Simply look at colour forecasts (Sherwin Williams, Dulux, Dunn Edwards etc) and incorporate them into your furniture...but how? A clever way to do this is to avoid investing in ultra modern furniture, instead buy traditional furniture that can be given a modern twist.  The classic vintage French furniture available at Vintage Vibe gives you amazing versatility as you can either buy the furniture in classic white or choose a paint colour to match your requirements and Vintage Vibe will paint it professionally for you.  This is an easy way to buy furniture that will never go out of fashion (vintage french furniture is always in demand) as once you feel the colour needs to change, you can simply re-paint it! So what are the colour trend forecasts for 2016? According to the nine Pantone Home & Interior colour palettes for 2016 are: Natural Forms, Dichotomy, Ephemera, Lineage, Soft Focus, Bijoux, Merriment, Footloose and Mixed Bag.  So...what do they mean?  Take a look at their breakdown:- *Unambiguous colours - including shades that are plumbed from natural sources such as warm rosy clay and sheepskin beige, give us Natural Forms. *Dichotomy reinforces the concept that opposites do and can attract as silver metallic, sunny yellow and bright cobalt blue combine with calmer versions of the hues. *Pastel-focused Ephemera blends delicate shades of wan blue, pale peach and tender yellow. *Lineage is a palette where shades of navy, black, tan and regimental green co-mingle with touches of brighter colours. *Soft Focus reveals subtle and/or muted colours, sometimes being described as "smoky" and always versatile. *In the French language, Bijoux means 'jewellery' – a fitting title for this palette that gleams with drama and intensity across many jewel tones. *Merriment is full of joyful shades including vibrant greens and yellows contrasted with pinks and oranges. *Capricious colour combinations with vacation-destination blues and blue-greens create Footloose – a palette that supports the idea of throwing off the constricting scheduling of everyday life and simply enjoying the freedom of the outdoors. *Mixed Bag is an assortment of eclectic patterns and prints, with exciting and unique colours like pirate black and mandarin red as well as violet and florid orange. So with this forecasting in mind, there are many colours highlighted that would work well on painted furniture so if you want to keep in fashion and ensure your furniture investment will last, give the team at Vintage Vibe a call - Lisa, Wendy and Kim will be happy to help!
