Nevertheless, it is absolutely impossible to resist some stunning new products. In this article we will tell you about interesting, fascinating and unusual trends in the modern interior, and after meeting them you will probably want to use at least some of them at home.
Furniture: contemporary retro
Since the mid-20th century, the furniture industry has begun to flourish. At that time, such furnishings were created that were ideal for any city apartment. They naturally combined elegance and convenience. The compactness of such furniture made it possible to use it in almost any room, regardless of its size. The elegance of sofas, armchairs, cabinets and nightstands of that era was added by elegant thin legs and narrow armrests, and the smooth surface of polished wood or high-quality plywood gave them chic and a touch of luxury.
Time passed, but such furniture has not lost its relevance. It is still in demand, as it looks perfect in the small rooms of modern apartments, without cluttering up the space and meeting all the requirements of convenience.
The influence of this trend can be seen not only in the sphere of furniture production, but also in such necessary items as lamps, decor elements, carpets, etc. Designers who develop modern collections do not just copy samples of the last century, but reinterpret them in a new way, add new details and make household items even more convenient and stylish, combining well with other styles and fashion trends.
Textiles: bright colors and patterns
The bizarre coloring of various pillows and pillows, carpets, bedspreads, blankets is gaining more and more popularity and is becoming a fashion trend in modern interior design. Light color is still preferred for walls, and against this background, bright textiles will sparkle with all the colors of the rainbow, giving the room liveliness and bold exoticism. To ensure that furnishings do not argue with the bright decor of textiles, one should give preference to plain furniture, especially since it is extremely popular and is one of the main trends of our time.
The interpenetration of different cultures has led to a person’s interest in the historical foundations of this or that people. In general, people became more interested in their origins, the history of their people and all of humanity. It is easy to travel in the modern world, and many take this opportunity, discovering various countries and cultural features, and this also influenced the development of ethnic style in fashion and design.
As we have already discussed above, monophonic light wallpapers are provided in the modern interior. This allows you to use more vibrant decorative elements with greater freedom. If necessary, you can always replace bored items by updating the interior without a global repair. It is enough to decorate the house with new pillows, a colored bedspread or a bright carpet. The room will look fresh and will not be overloaded, since light walls will visually increase the space and add light and space to the room.

The tree is back in fashion
Wicker elements in the decor are gaining more and more popularity in the modern interior. If earlier wicker chairs, tables and rocking chairs hid modestly on the verandas and balconies, now they again proudly return to the living rooms, bedrooms and other rooms, taking pride of place among fashion trends. Not only this comfortable and beautiful furniture is returning to our homes: wicker baskets, carpets, bamboo curtains and even plates are becoming popular decor items. The rough texture of the tree gives the interior greater expressiveness and makes urban residents closer to nature.
Green plants adorning the modern interiors of almost any room are still extremely popular. High pots can be placed on the floor, smaller pots - on window sills and any other horizontal surfaces, as well as hung on the ceiling or strengthened with special mounts on the walls.
If you do not have time to deal with all this variety of plants, then just put in a room a large pot with a palm tree or ficus.
For a modern interior, the use of frames for decorating walls is typical. But as pictures, it’s not the pictures of classical masters that are inserted into the frames, but vintage black-and-white photographs styled in antiquity, posters, pages from magazines or books or other unusual images storing the imprint of antiquity. All this will add to the interior exquisite charm and bohemian charm.
