Upholstered furniture is the personification of comfort. Massive or sophisticated, bright or discreet sofas and armchairs can emphasize in a special way the taste of the owners of the house, as well as emphasize the ornate concept of the interior or even the design of the whole house.
Last year fashion for stylish upholstered furniture was very changeable, and trends were chaotic and blurred. It is difficult to identify any specific directions - many styles combined with each other. On the basis of restrained minimalism, one could observe very unusual fusion or art deco additions.
The 2019 sofas will also surprise by the variety and complex design presentation. However, several key features can now be identified. First of all, upholstered furniture is represented by smooth lines. Finishing is carried out exclusively by natural materials. In the trend of natural colors.
Regarding models in the prerogative of modular sofas. Usually, these are always bulky and massive structures, which can be capacious due to well-thought-out mechanisms and complex modularity, but do not take up too much space.
Another important trend of 2019 is universality in everything. With each new season, the requirements for furniture, especially this dimension, are higher and higher. Not surprisingly, the new models of sofas not only serve as an ideal place to relax, but can also work as a couch, storage for household supplies, or even a hanger.
The most popular frame material is wood. In fact, a natural, environmentally friendly, versatile to use, aesthetically perfect option will always be popular. If wood still belongs to expensive materials, then chipboard and chipboard is a good budget alternative.
Some modern sofas differ in a frame made of metal. This type of construction is considered extremely durable and reliable. Of the minuses, it is worth noting the great weight of such sofas, as well as the fact that such furniture would be appropriate only in strictly designed interior compositions.
To combine the practicality of the metal and the ease of chipboard or wood, manufacturers have come up with a special trick. In the sliding parts are used metal nodes, and static sections are made of wood.
Fashionable sofas of the new season are largely determined by the type of upholstery, color palette and texture. Impeccable appearance and thoughtful modern design guarantee the success of a particular model.
The best options for upholstery fabric today are:
- Quilted fabrics;
- Faux or real fur;
Many manufacturers often combine several types of finishes. Choosing one or another option, take into account not only the functional qualities and stylistic belonging, but also the place where the new furniture will be located.
For example, fashionable leather sofas fit well into the interior of the kitchen or dining room. A practical and respectable finish is easy to maintain and gives such practical rooms more gloss. In this case, you can choose bright or brand colors, since the leather can be quickly cleaned.
Children's sofas, fashionable and practical, suggest the presence of the same bright colors and practical upholstery. For the living room or bedroom, stylish options can be decorated and relatively impractical materials. For example, tapestry in combination with leather and fur. Looks expensive and respectable. The main thing is to learn how to properly care for expensive canvas.
Fashionable color palette
The novelties of the 2019 sofas are represented not only by an interesting combination of textures and a rich choice of upholstery, but also by a rich color palette. Always beautiful, subtle and stylish look pastel soft shades: terracotta, milk, beige, all the tones of chocolate.
For sofas in the new season, more radical bold colors are characteristic:
- Lemon yellow;
- Emerald (bottle);
- Purple and rich lilac;
- Original fluorescent;
- Black background with modulations of blue or purple.
Considering the fashionable palette, it is impossible not to recall the Pantone Institute, which annually generates a rating of the most popular and popular shades. The colors offered by experts for many years have become key not only in the fashion and beauty industry, but also in many other areas. For example, in the interiors of modern apartments.
So for the sofas in 2019 will be characterized by such color solutions:
- Intense Green Emerald Lush Meadow;
- Heavenly colors with haze of Airy Blue and Riverside;
- A unique blend of noble bordeaux and flirty pink tone Dusty Cedar.
Do not forget about floral prints, large abstraction, bold and unusual drawings. For the sofas in 2019 are characterized by drawings of large sizes. They should look like separate color spots, which will visually reduce the overall furniture, and make the interior composition itself more difficult and interesting.
The popularity of one or another style is a rather relative concept. Forming an interesting design or deciding which sofas the new generation will fit into the ready-made apartments, the decisive factor will be the desire of the buyers themselves, performance characteristics, price, and not fashion trends.
However, for those who still want to completely update the situation in the house and do everything as the fashion trends of the new season require, the designers made a list of those styles that are most relevant:
- High tech;
According to the designers themselves, the key role in the style is not colors, but the upholstery itself. For example, the Scandinavian style is characterized by the use of microfiber blue palette. Leather, tapestry and velor are perfect for baroque, rococo and rich classics. Stylish sofas for the living room can decorate with fur or velvet with complex embroidery, but this option is not appropriate for a kitchen or a nursery.
The shape of the sofa - the basis of style
Sofa models are striking variety of forms. However, the most relevant and sought-after were and remain round and angular options.
Round models are preferred in the case when you need to create a soft and cozy atmosphere. They will perfectly fit into the modern design of the spacious bright rooms.
One of the variations of the "round fashion" is considered to be a ring sofa. He is good from any angle. The main feature: this furniture has no back side. Suit such sofas for the kitchen-studio or a spacious living room. They are always located in the center of the room.
The design of the ring sofas involves the use of one of the parties as an important functional element. These can be shelves for books or souvenirs or a stand for indoor flowers.
Fashionable corner sofas are convenient to use, interesting in design, ideal for rooms with a specific layout. Furniture factories are constantly experimenting, creating new interesting products.
Sofas for the kitchen are models with different types of sliding mechanisms. The complex structure, which can be transformed at the discretion of users, is ideal for a children's room or a small living room.
The undoubted advantages of such models include:
- Hidden corners;
- Additional space;
- The ability to quickly organize an extra bed;
- An interesting shape that always looks elegant in the interior.
For corner sofas is characterized by universality in terms of stylistic affiliation. They look equally good both in the classic form and in the non-standard ultra modern pitch.
The sofa-book, once popular, will never go out of fashion. The design of such upholstered furniture is simple, but the design features deserve special attention.
The task of the models: to solve the actual problems of all small-sized apartments, where during the day the “book” can be a classic sofa, and at night is transformed into a comfortable sleeping place.
As a rule, the back falls in a niche and does not require extra space. In the unfolded form, the sofa-book completely lacks a depression between the seat and the backrest.
A distinctive feature of modular sofas is the ability to move and push the product, giving the furniture any shape. This is a modern approach that combines practicality, ease of use and versatility.
Transformers sofas work in the same way. They can not just turn into a comfortable bed at any time, but they are always a safe storage for various bedding or household items. Due to the particularly pronounced universality, the design of transformers is usually complex and original.
In the same category of fashionable modules, you should also include the original furniture of the type “sofa-chaise longue”, ottoman without armrests, and sofa-bay windows. Creative design, the presence of fashionable dominant colors, original texture and interesting upholstery - all these nuances can turn a practical thing into a luxurious attribute for modern apartments.
