It’s the time of year when we start to think about updating our homes, so it’s a good idea to check-in on the new trends in furniture and fittings for the new year. Sofas have been undergoing an evolution over the past few years with traditional styles being eschewed more and more in favor of newer seating concepts. We’ve got a list of some of the hottest non-traditional sofa styles and trends you’ll be seeing over the next year that are worth considering if you’ve got redecoration plans in your future!
1 – Structured Bags
Think of these like bean bags sewn together into a sofa, although often this look hides a firmer structure within. These overstuffed, lush sofa styles are exactly what many families are looking for when they want a great place to lounge and watch the big game or binge a tv show.
2 – Backless
Prepare yourselves, lumbar support lovers–backless sofas actually are coming in style. While they’re not for everyone in a practical sense, we can’t deny that they offer a stunning look. They pair particularly well with modern homes and large rooms.
3 – Built-in
Sure, built-in sofas have always played well in sunken living rooms, but this look is showing up in a banquet style in more traditional living spaces as well. If a custom-sized seating arrangement is what you’re looking for, the built-in look could work really well in your space.
