7 Designer-Approved Furniture Trends For 2024

It’s that time of year again: our design experts have put together their list of top furniture design trends to look out for in 2024! Whether you’re planning a style refresh, full home renovation, or just looking for ways to enhance one particular room in the house, here are some of the things our designers recommend to keep your style on-trend, and your furniture timeless:

1. Choose Darker Wood Furniture

This year, designers predict that darker woods, or darker finishes on lighter woods will take the lead. Look for furniture made from naturally dark walnut or teak, and lighter wood pieces stained in rich chocolates, deep browns, and warm coffee tones like the GRAYN Bedroom Collection in Shadow Oak.  

2. Enjoy The Beauty Of Performance Fabrics

Gone are the days when these incredibly durable and easy-to-clean fabrics were only appealing to parents with small children, and pet owners. Today’s performance fabrics have come a long way to offer softer, more luxurious, and richly textured options in a wide range of colors too. 

3. Consider Custom Furniture Pieces

Sustainability has grown to be more important than ever for customers and companies alike; as a result, we’ll see custom made furniture becoming less of a luxury concept, and more of a smart investment. When a piece of furniture is expertly crafted precisely to your specific style, lifestyle, and space needs, it’s more likely to become an heirloom you’ll want to keep longer, and even pass on to future generations too.

4. Opt For Environmentally Friendly

Speaking of sustainable and long-lasting furniture, prioritizing pieces made from more eco-friendly materials and processes is one design trend that’s not going away anytime soon. At Urban Natural, all of our workshop partners share our five core values of producing more sustainable, ethically responsible, handcrafted, organic, and USA made furniture–  that doesn’t just mean a higher quality for your pieces, but better health for your home and planet too.

5. Indulge In Curved Silhouettes

The next design trend our experts predict will continue strong into 2024 is the preference for more rounded edges and curved silhouettes. A softer angle is more in-line with nature, and can be a beautiful way to offset the structure and rigidity of straight lines and shaper edges.

6. Get More Grounded With Earth Tones

Nature-inspired color palettes will also be in the spotlight this year. Look for mossy greens, browns, creams, grays, and even muted reds like burgundy to warm up your upholstery and textiles, and bring a more tranquil, grounding feel to your home.

7. Don’t Be Afraid To Make A Statement

While 2024 will see a return to more natural tones and aesthetics, designers also encourage the occasional pop of color, or bold textured fabric to highlight a focal piece in the room, and add some flair and personality to your space. Don’t be afraid to get creative, or mix and match styles and shapes too!
