Whilst there are plenty of designers who take great pleasure in drawing on the past, in particular classic opulent styles of royalty and mid-century pieces with a modern element it should be noted it is the designers that reach out to the future who are creating a new generation of interior design.
The interior design trends that are creeping into homes are far from being science fiction but more cutting edge as we welcome straight lines, greys and simple but modern looks. The future looks exciting.
What better way to look into the future than with futurist interior design. Furniture designers are recognising that the modern living space where we spend a large proportion of time require aesthetically appealing décor and furniture to demonstrate the functionality, the comfort and the interest of the room with major modern trends.
Futuristic interior design admittedly is one of the most amazing trends in home furnishings. Creating something for those who will breathe the artistic look day in, day out. With the addition of light fixtures and décor, designers are creating a home that is not only beautiful but also functional. Creating something today that will last a lifetime.
Interior design is an art especially modern futuristic interior design. It gives the designer the opportunity to take a sneak into the future, the way they view it. They are able to take contemporary furniture of today and turn it into a trend of the future.
What are these futuristic interior design trends?
Have you heard of the international home decorating fair in Cologne? It is one of the most prestigious events in the interior design calendar. These exhibitions show the latest trends and more importantly the future of interior design. During these events designers showcase their best pieces using new materials, innovative accessories and creative light fixtures to bring their piece to the forefront, Cologne is the central place where designers share ideas and finished products.
Designers from all over the world will bring to the fair new ideas, concepts and new designs. It is not uncommon to see recycled materials (plastics, woods and metals) and natural materials to set the next trend in interior design.
We take a look at four trends evolving. Each of them unique – trickery, comfort zone, rehab, and discipline as we explore these in more detail.
Developed from the word rehabilitation this is a theme for those that are bored of seeing the same boring and unchallenging designs. The rehab theme draws on recycled materials and advancements in technology to bring a functional concept to clutter free living spaces. Green living certainly runs heavily in the theme.
Rehab pushes towards only buying key pieces that you need. These items are functional additions for those who refuse to accumulate lots of accessories and furniture. This trend suggests that people should get rid of all their accessories and anything that clutters their home and their life. Do you agree?
THE COMFORT ZONE
This is a trend that focuses on creating a warm, cosy living space where people feel their most relaxed. Modern futuristic designs include luxurious and bright pieces to simple and rustic. Designers focus on everyday pieces to create an unusual and stylish piece that is created from something in your home. Think a wooden dining table with a twist. Other designs are inspired by English Victorian but more importantly they are all designed with eco-friendly materials.
The green theme runs heavily in this trend again as upcycled materials are used to create practical pieces. Designers create pieces that have a purpose and a meaning. Its functionality is determined by its texture, colour and shape.
Think fresh and creative designs. Interesting colours and materials are used to create designs that are not exactly what they look like. Is it a bed or is it a table? There is a surprising element on these pieces as unusual shapes make an appearance.
The idea of trickery design is to demonstrate that no material should be wasted and using recycled materials cleverly can create a contemporary and modern finish.
It is clear to see there is an appetite for futuristic modern designs. These designs give onlookers an insight into the future. There is lots of interest in futuristic designs that it is further proof that people want to step away from the furniture of today and yesterday as they welcome the design of the future.
