The top 4 Upholstery Trends for 2015
Interior design, just like fashion, has trends that come and go. If you are thinking of reupholstering your favourite item of furniture, take a note of the key trends in both interior design and upholstery fabrics;
Trend 1: Botanical Print
This is one of the upholstery trends in 2015 that everyone can use within their home or business. Flower prints were on trend throughout 2014 and well in to this year and this follows on from this pattern.
However, to be really sparky with your choice of upholstery, opt for green botanical prints, minus big blooms or even ditzy flowers. Reminiscent of William Morris patterns but without the flowers, you can got as big as you like with botanical print or opt for smaller details. The choice is yours.
Trend 2: Industrial Influence
You may have noticed as your browsed the interior design magazines the nod to what is being called the Industrial Influence.
This is about exposing some of the inner parts of furniture that hitherto have remained unwraps; in terms of upholstery, the on trend fashion when re-covering furniture is to expose the legs and so on. Even better if some of those items you are looking to cover are metal.
Trend 3: Upholstery colours
In terms of colours, the trend of opting for dark, deep moody colours is back. Create dramatic effect with deep colours, contrasting them with a lighter, neutral colour.
To be right on trend this season, opt for midnight hues of blue, so dark that they are almost black. Use chalky whites and creams as the perfect offset colour.
Upholstery trends for 2015 is about drama with colour, but also creating a sense of additional excitement with textures. If the fabric can withstand the use in your home, opt for a material that is as sumptuous and soft as it possibly can be. Velvet type materials are in but may not suit every household; choose wisely as upholstery material needs to really work for you.
Trend 4: Monochrome
It works for some, but upholstery trends for 2015 includes a monochrome interior too but, without it being dated.
Takings it cue from the dark colours of the this season, the black colour needs to be the prominent colour in any monochrome interior design scheme with the white use sparingly - if you dare!
So, when it comes to creating this look with upholstery, choose the darkest, most dramatic black materials your budget can cope with. Add a splash of lightness with quality, white cushions and accessories - and don't forget to add different textures too.
