Top 100 Furniture Trends in 2015

From Slashed Sofa Sets to Digital Cooking Tables

— January 30, 2016 — Art & Design
As demonstrated by the 2015 furniture trends, household goods are representative of its owner's personality, taste and values.

Observing some of the most popular furniture styles over the past year, what seems important to most consumers is fostering a sense of play and a strong connection to nature. An example that perfectly captures both of these sentiments is a set of university chairs and tables designed by Menéndez and Gamonal Arquitectos for Oviedo University. These themes can also seen in items like Steelcase's Intelligent Office, as well as the sculptural Millennial Collection, which fuses fine metalwork with natural tree trunks.

From films like Interstellar and The Martian to NASA announcing findings of water on Mars and the release of the newest Star Wars instalment, 2015 has been a year that brought about new curiosities for outer space. This fascination is being translated into cosmic decor, as seen in pieces like Alvin Huang's 3D-printed Durotaxis rocking chair, Brooksbank & Collins' Jupiter-inspired coffee table and the Infinitum table by Louise-Anne van 't Riet.

Furniture has become a means with which designers and homeowners are expressing a range of concerns and fascinations with the state of the current world. For deeper insights into furniture of the future, design, homes and modern living, consult Trend Hunter's 2016 Trend Report.
