2012 has taken its last curtain call, and with the start of the new year, we begin working on the resolutions we made as the ball was dropping and wonder what 2013 will bring. So without further ado, I’ll take a look into my crystal ball and gaze into what will hopefully be a year of health, happiness and success for both us as individuals and collectively as a country.
When I think about upcoming trends, and particularly interior design and furniture trends, I can break them down into three sections: patterns, colors, and styles. And they all interchangeably slip in and out of the following question: what will be most popular in 2013?
Patterns to Look Out for in 2013
For patterns, I foresee a big comeback for floral arrangements in furniture. Not bland flower patterns that donned your grandparents couches, but rather vivid, stylish floral patterns. Hammary makes two specific ones in their Hidden Treasures collection, both of which are available here at BEYOND Stores. The Bouquet Accent Chest is beautifully crafted and features a hand painted flower and bouquet design, while the Chest With Hand-Painted Floral Accents is a one-of-a-kind accent piece that brings out the best in any room or hallway it rests in.
Trending Colors in 2013
Here it is really anyone’s guess, but my bet is that we will continue to see a strong use of vibrant colors. For example, Zuo Modern’s Laguna Outdoor Pillows come in a variety of shades, which can bring out the best in your patio furniture. I think red will be the dominant strong color of 2013, whereas green will be the go to color for the neutral subdued look.
Top Styles of 2013
Lastly, which styles will be hot in 2013? Without a doubt, I am betting on über modern styles. And the more contemporary, the better!
Before closing, I want to present two barstools on offer here at BEYOND Stores. However, let me preface this by saying that these are really only for those customers who are looking to make a statement in their 2013 remodeling.
The first is Eurostyle’s Angelita Swivel Bar Stool, which is fully adjustable with a gas lift lever. What I really like about this stylish item is its compact look. However, don’t be fooled into thinking it is flimsy. On the contrary! It comes complete with a durable chrome steel base and sturdy footrest that affords a comfortable seat.
And if you think the back on this stool is too high, then check out the Backless Counter Height Stools from Diamond Sofa. These crocodile pattern chairs are extremely comfortable and modern, all wrapped into one. This barstool is terrific for a quick bite or evening entertainment.
Without a doubt you’ll be seeing these patterns, colors, and styles crop up in 2013. Happy New Year to all!
