Behind The Scenes 04 February 2019

Bags of personality at this year’s January Furniture Show!

Location: NEC Birmingham

As February has now officially arrived, we thought we’d reflect on what interior inspiration January gave us. Namely, the January Furniture Show, which was held at Birmingham’s NEC centre on the 20th till 23rd Jan.

The January Furniture Show showcases the designs and trends set to dazzle in 2019. It’s shows like this, as well as others across the globe, that highlight the year’s statement colours, shapes and accessories. So, sit back and grab a brew whilst we let you in on what exciting styles you’ll be seeing throughout 2019. From bold botanicals to earthy colour schemes, the January Furniture Show definitely didn’t disappoint!

Rust, terracotta & burnt orange!

We almost love the sound of these colours as much as we love seeing them! Visible on pretty much every furniture and accessory suppliers stand, these shades of earthy oranges are set to be HUGE! Interior and lifestyle magazines have been featuring these colour palettes since December 2018 in preparation.

Very Velvet!

Something we saw a lot of was these shades used alongside velvet upholstery, a trend that has been gaining momentum over the past few years – and one that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! Whether it’s these warming tones of orange or jewel-bright colours such as teal, emerald and turmeric, velvet is set to stay.

Button-back loveliness! 

From stools and armchairs to corner sofas, button-back detailing was everywhere at the January Furniture Show. Reminiscent of the classic chesterfield design, buttoned detailing always adds a touch of timeless glamour to any design or upholstery.

New trends rising

Whilst browsing, we noticed a few design elements that stood out - trends that we’re starting to see filter down from the catwalks into homeware, materials such as bamboo and jute through to style details like tassels and tribal prints. Another fun trend for this year is big bold and beautiful botanical prints.

So that’s it folks, we’ve got some exciting styles to look forward to! Keep an eye out for new ranges, accessories and trends coming in-store this Spring. We’ve got lots of pieces with bags of personality!
