Some designer decor never goes out of style. But every year, particular looks, materials, and finishes stand out more than most. For example, in 2018 we saw lots of full-on rustic, stark modernism, and shabby-chic styles. In 2019, it looks like an evolution on the best of last years looks while embracing a new current aesthetic. It's a decorative approach that's emerging within interior design circles.
At Kate and Laurel, our designers have been busy searching this year’s trend shows for the best in home décor. They all agree that 2019 styles have a bit of everything for every taste. Whether you want to up the ante on your home’s entire motif or offer a little something to complete a quiet corner, it's there.
1) REFINED RUSTIC
A more restrained rustic is emerging. Last year's farmhouse rustic elements are pairing with modern materials. The result is a fresh, contemporary style that's easy to work with.
The K&L Hanneli Tray presents a chic, casual look. The walnut finish combined with the gold perforated metal presents an updated modern farmhouse style.
2) CALMING CONCRETE
Concrete takes on decorative usefulness as it continues to be popular. This year, you’ll see it embraced in subdue color palettes or combined with natural elements like wood and glass.
The concrete gray finish of the K&L Walsh shelves keeps up with the trend. The 3-tiered design and modern industrial look make it a 2019 must-have.
3) STUNNING STONE
Man-made and natural stone created quite the buzz at the 2019 trend shows. Presented with a variety of finishes and textures, the material came in an array of shapes and thickness. The result created a fun chunky look in some and a sleek, sophisticated appeal in others.
The natural marble stone of the Maia side table brings a certain radiance. An elegant geometric shape is perfect for next to a chair or sofa.
4) MIXED TONES
The trend with distressed woods has evolved to include a pairing with a more refined finish. The effect creates unique pieces that have added interest but still offer warmth.
The shabby-chic finish of the cabinet complements a comfortable elegance. The smooth walnut finished top in the K&L Pearlind side table sets it apart from its counterparts.
