Above all else, comfort will be king in 2021. Creating spaces that look inviting, make us feel at ease, and reflect a sense of calm will be among the most enduring trends this year. But there’s also a focus on bringing in unique and eclectic items that really make a living room feel like your home. That means adding vintage pieces that tell a story, to a mixture of warm colors and textures and layering on elements to give this room a comfortable and collected vibe.

Bringing In The Bold
Going BOLD is undoubtedly the most eye-catching trend this year. Not for the color averse, it’s all about using striking tones to make a statement with one or two pieces, whether it’s a bright colored sofa, an oversize piece of art, or a rug that really pops against a room that is otherwise more muted in tone. Using just a few larger pieces that are colorful will also help create a more definitive focal point in the living room, directing the eye without seeming overly busy.

Open To Nature
A connection to the great outdoors will continue to inspire our interiors – especially living rooms. Anything found in nature, from natural materials to organic textures, to an earthy color palette are all expected to be on everyone’s wish list. Natural stone fireplaces and wood wall paneling will feature architecturally, and of course, plants of every variety will be in full bloom. And since living rooms will continue to be a place to retreat and recharge, the grounding effect of nature will be more relevant than ever.

California Casual Farmhouse
Farmhouse style has definitely taken hold of the design world in the past few years. And we think a particular take on the style – mixing in earthy tones and a casual, California vibe – will make its mark this year. The trademark details, like rustic elements, cozy textiles, and warm wood, will be joined by more modern pieces of furniture, subtle tone on tone patterns, and a mix of ceramics and textural accessories. And warm white walls will remain the ideal backdrop – and to bring in the glow of sunny SoCal afternoon.

Straight lines are so 2020. This year, we’re predicting lots of curves ahead. From sofas with curved corners, rounded legs, oval tabletops, and accessories with serves, there won’t be a 90-degree angle in sight (well, maybe just a few). Even lighting will get in on the action, with floor lamps with molded metal shades, bulbous-based table lamps, and lots of glowing globe pendant lights. Considering the visual appeal of soft and curvy lines, living rooms are shaping up to be a lot easier on the eyes in 2021.
